    Soon-To-Be-a-Hanger

    Hi all,

    Iíve been a long time lurker of this forum but I must confess Iím not actually a hanger. Well, not yet anyway. But after today that may change very, very soon.

    You see, today I had the pleasure of spending some quality time with, and in, a Hennessey Ultralight Asym. The thing that has put me off hanging in the past has been the unavailability of purchasing quality gear locally. Iíve read all about it but thereís no substitute for ďtrying it onĒ.

    Now that Iíve tried it on, Iím impressed. Very impressed.

    So now all I have to do is 1/ convince the Minister of Finance (aka: wife) that the $400 outlay is actually cost-neutral and 2/ decide on a hammock.

    While I liked the Hennessey and the fact I can get it locally, I think the Warbonnet Blackbird might actually be the one for me. Really, all it comes down to is the convenience of the side entry.

    Thanks to everyone on these forums for sharing your wonderful stories, and helping ground dwellers like me make the great evolutionary leap and join our ancestors in the trees.

    Cheers

    Welcome Rusty; A blackbird is a great hammock. Good luck with the MOF

    Well put sir- Who can disprove evolution in times like these? You've stepped off the ground and into the trees.
