    19 Days of agony...

    As the title says - 19 Days of agony, 19 days of stalking the deliveryguy, 19 days of checking Track and Trace, before i even went to the toilet in the mornings, 19 Days of(Censored - to much profanity for anybody).

    This thursday it finally arrived... My WBBB 1.7 SL... Boy am i psyched!.. the long awaited Blackbird. And boy was expectations high!
    Iīm happy to say that my BB fully lives up to expectations. I didnīt even make all the way home before i had to try it out Just swung by some local trails and had to hang her...



    Sheīs a beautī right?...

    Well i was a little concernd that it was just "the hype" that made people buy BBīs - but boy i couldīnt have been more mistaken!
    This hammock is absolutely beautiful made, all stitches are perfectly straight - everything looks to be PERFECT made!(unlike a lot of stuff from China).
    You can really tell that this is made by someone who know his hammocks and cares a lot for his products!

    So far iīve spend just 2 nights in it(and most of the day) and i have only one complaint: Itīs to D *** Comfy - how am i supposed to leave this little piece of heavenly joy???

    FYI iīm 6,4, have rather wide shoulders and iīm bony like at a camel skeleton in the desert - but that doesnt stop the BB from being the most spaciuos and comfortable hammock i ever tried - PERIOD!!! (i have 7 other hammocks so no lack of comparison)
    A small piece of string solved the problem of finding out which end is the head end - now my biggest challenge is to find the free hours to enjoy my sleep, in my newly found piece of heaven. And what kind of down UQ iīll be needing this winter.

    I'm really looking forward to seing your Blackbird.... and if you do manage to get out of it, I wouldn't mind trying it out

    Congrats again on your 145th (just about) hammock!
