    Who was in the WBBB @ Goat Island?

    Who was in the WBBB set up back away from the shoreline @ the Goat Island hang on Lake Greenwood a few weeks ago? I want to bend your ear (or maybe eyes) again about your setup.

    There were actually 2 WBBBs and 2 Superfly tarps there. I had 1 set back by Hanging Burito and Running Feather setups, but I believe the setup you were referring to belongs to Land.

    Feel free to ask either of us whatever questions you have.

    I second that.

    Mine was the one you "test drove," Paul.

    Ask away.

    Remind me how you (y'all) hung your tarp.

    I hang mine with a continuous ridgeline with the tarp over the ridgeline string. I attach the tarp to prussic knots on the ridgeline via little carabiners. From there, I just stake out the corners.

    My ridgeline is a cheap string that I picked up in a camping store, IIRC.

    There are various schools of thought on tarp hanging, and I am still exploring some techniques and options.

    Thanks for the input. I've pretty much decided on a WBBB. Still up in the air on a tarp. leaning toward a McCat Deluxe or Big Mamajamba. Leaning toward SpinnUL rather than silnylon. What do the two of you think?

    I don't use the continuous ridgeline. The binding Brandon uses is pretty strong and therefor I just go from the tree to the rings at the tarp ridgeline. Haven't had any issues and have been in some heavy winds with it on the lake.

    Only difference I can tell is a little less needed line. I think for the price difference, having the Superfly over the BM is nicer because of the side pullouts. Unless you intend to have ideal conditions (yeah, right! ...) every time you hang, those pullouts are helpful in giving you some extra headroom when needed. Spinn is nice and light but for the little extra weight, I'll take the extra room. Helps the back as I can stand up straighter and not have to lean over as much.

    My $0.02 . . .

    So do you two guys usually hang in the mode as on Goat Island or do y'all also take your hammock backpacking?
