    new BB convert

    Well, I've been reading different threads and watching Shug's videos and I finally had to break down and get one. Enter, the Warbonnet Blackbird!

    Not only am I new to the BB but hammocking as well. I'm leaving those tents behind!

    This is a breif review because its still new to me but so far I really like this hammock. Comfortable, flat, and just plain awesome to look at! Before deciding on a hammock I caught the ENO single nest on sale so I decided to take a chance and see how I liked hammocks. The ENO was a good investment. After purchasing the ENO and straps I realized I would need a net but before purchasing that I started reading about the BB; and am glad I did.

    I like ENO but have to say the BB is more comfortable, more roomy, and has more features. It sure is a nice piece of work.

    Thanks to all who wrote the articles, Shug for the videos (keep'em coming), and to Brandon for the wonderful hammock. I'll post more after I break'er in.

    Lots of that going around these days. Oh well, the skeeters out in the woods right now would carry you away. I've been doing a lot of day hikes, and HOLY CR**, it is just crazy around here with avian bloodsuckers, even though we are drier than a bone. But the BB keeps them out of my hammock at night.

    Welcome to the BB cult, tboss70!
