    Yeah I'm on the list too. I held out for quite a while, but groupthink got me in the end! These will be the two longest weeks ever....

    I have received my 3rd WB BB. I sent Brandon an email, but I have to post this here for general consumption.

    Brandon went out of his way to make yet another perfect hammock for me, as well as to fix an issue I had with my 1.1/silk hammock that he made for me. I had ripped a portion of the bugnetting away from its seam, and he performed slight surgery on it to repair it - totally my fault, and no fault in the manufacture or design of the hammock. He also went out of his way to make sure that I had my hammock in time for my Shawnee trip this past weekend (after a little shameless begging on my part.)

    You will not be sorry if you purchase from Brandon. Even if you are a hammock newb and don't know if you will like hammock camping, the quality of Brandon's work, his commitment to customer service, his willingness to go the extra mile, and the comfort and quality of his design should be enough to convert any ground dweller. The resale value also holds up very well, if you determine you aren't one of the hammock people.

    3rd BB, fin, you need help. Hammock O.C.D. is not a good thing, fun but not good. How many hammocks can you sleep in at one time anyways??

    Never enough hammocks. I also have the Clark NA and the JRB BMBH, as well as a variety of No-nets. You never know when you might need a spare to convert a ground-dweller. Plus, my wife has decided to give hammock camping a try now, so she is using one of my BB's, and has stated that she would like a hammock to call her own. I can't just give her one of my BB's, because they are all custom and all unique, and it is like picking out your favorite child - they all have their redeeming qualities and different properties/materials. I am thinking of ordering a stock BB for her - that is the one thing I don't have is a run-of-the-mill, standard model BB.

    hey dudes!
    I just got on the list yesterday double layer 1.7 adjustable webbing and a supertarp with removable doors!!!! Can't wait. Thanks for all the advice on my purchase. It took weeks to decide between clark nx 150 and blackbird. blackbird looks much more comfortable. Even with the poles ( 3 section not hooked together with cord) I still got banana feeling.
    I'm due to get it in 2 weeks. Brandon is super helpful with questions.

    Well, I just have 1, for now, but am planning to order 1 or 2 more next year. Gotta have the demos to use in converting some friends/ cousins/ others who are still ground-pounders. Plus, it's always nice to have an extra to whip out when someone's tent (shudder) fails.

    just received my warbonnet traveler last week and have logged 8 nights already (inside)
    I have made many a no net using different shapes and whippings and the traveler is the most comfortable I've been in yet.
    I think it rivals my BB...amazing!

    I'm glad you like it! The Traveler is my favorite too... There's a few of us that really appreciate the Traveler...but we're a comfortable few.

    Not quite there yet.
    I really like my Traveler (more than I expected), but it's probably in the #2 or #3 seat as far as my favorites. Believe it or not, I still take my old ElDorado in favor of the Blackbird sometimes. I just really like that hammock. Might be more than a little bit of sentimentality, but whatever the reason...I sure do like it!
    Trust nobody!

    I believe it.. I've got an ElDorado with a fresh set of Whoopie Slings on it.
