    Talking Count me in!

    Just ordered a BB, 1.1 double, gray, webbing suspension.



    Been working mass OT lately, so I'm treating myself to an early birthday present! Autumn is when I start going outdoors again (once the heat, bugs, people are gone) and it's always great to have a new toy to look forward to. Now to cross my fingers and pray for fast shipment!

    Congrats! I don't think getting a BB is ever a bad decision.

    I love OT presents. Been working a lot here lately myself and thinking of something with which to reward myself... Hmm what do I "need" next?
    oldgringo's reply to my worrying about owning extra hammocks:

    How many pairs of underwear do you own? Do you refer to them as "extras", simply because you're not wearing all of them as we speak?

    I'm with y'all. I've got 3-4 days of OT coming up in the next couple weeks, so I may reward myself with a new gear toy in the next few weeks. Maybe I'll go ahead and put up a few bucks for that Yeti I've been wanting.

    Yeah, OT has a been a rarely seen beast for about 8 months up until August when everything suddenly went nuts and all I do is work!

    I already know I love the BB, so no worries there, but it's nice to know in worst case I could resell it in about 2.7 seconds.

    If I can sell off a couple of things I'm going to get a nice top quilt next. Start moving away from the bags.

    Well since you guys (SirNothing and Nurse Hooch) are in such a good mood, and want to buy OT rewards.....I would like a couple of pieces of gear also. Please PM me for a mailing address to send said equipment to.

    But seriously....you deserve a break today!

    Yeah, well I went through the Clark (which I still love and wish I hadn't sold) and the HH Expedition which is OK, the zipper mod is very nice, but overall I liked my Clark more.
    With the fall season approaching, I need something really comfy. The HH Exped is just too small feeling for me.

    From what I hear, the BB is the creme de la creme! Gotta try that.
