    Comfy!!!!!

    My WBBB 1.0 dbl is here, but because it's supposed to be a Christmas present, I hadn't yet set it up or tried it out.

    Last night, when the family was all here for dinner, my wife was convinced that my son-in-law (who grew up sleeping in hammocks) and I should check the new hammock out.

    We got it set up between two trees that were a little far apart, but still seemed about right.

    Adam loved it, and wanted to take it home with him!

    I was blown away by the comfort! No more ground camping for me! And the foot box is fantastic! What a great concept!

    Thanks to all here for your posts that led me to this hammock, and to Warbonnet for their excellent work!

    Its not fair to you to be expected to wait until Christmas.

    Making you wait until Christmas is just wrong.

    Main reason I wait so long to buy Christmas presents right there. I cant wait for the people I buy them for to use them.

    When I said something about a weekend trip to the mountains with the hammock this morning, she thought that would be great!

    I'm thinking now that this is a Christmas present as in "it doesn't come out of my personal budget", not as in "can't use it until after Christmas". My mistake!

    Now where shall I go???



    Oh, and the tarp from MLD has not yet arrived, but Ron's working on it!

    For a short trip, IF you can't wait till your tarp comes: a "blue tarp" from the hardware store (Or Biglots) will withstand a light rain, & if hung right a pretty hard rain. Something to consider.
    The "Blue tarps" comes in a variety of colors BTW. I have 2 Green & a Brown "Blue tarp"
    When you have a backpack on, no matter where you are, you’re home.
    PAIN is INEVITABLE. MISERY is OPTIONAL.
