    LOL. Yes, I am spoiled by so many things these days.

    I remember my first BB & SF took a little over 6 weeks in the spring of '09. My last one took a week.

    witold - If you ordered a 1.7 dbl BB, I did, too at just about the same time as you. I just emailed Brandon and told him I can wait for mine since I won't be able to get out until spring anyway. So maybe that will speed it up for you??
    I would guess you've researched Warbonnet and seen the rave reviews his products and service are getting all accross the various boards.
    If you let hime know your particular issue I think he'll do everything in his power to get it to you ASAP. Drop him a line.

    Change of plans. Brandon emailed me yesterday and unfortunately did not have enough of the black fabric to fill my order. He said he will be getting the slate gray fabric in about a week and will start shipping orders in about two weeks.

    Ah, the old, "How long do I have to wait for my Blackbird?" thread. I've seen so many of these now, and I even believe I may have started one myself, but by now this topic should have its own sub-forum. Be patient, it's well worth the wait - even if it is the longest Two weeks of your life.
    Those who expect disappointment are never disappointed.

    OK, update time:

    I paid on Feb 11.

    Current USPS status just changed to: "Electronic Shipping Info Received"

    No offense, but there should be a big red disclaimer for Warbonnet that they don't really fulfill orders in any sort of reasonable time. I guess whoever runs the place just doesn't care much.

    While you might not be happy with the typical lead times for a small cottage business, to imply that Brandon doesn't care much is definitely offensive. His innovative design has contributed heavily to a whole lot of peoples' comfort in the woods, and he's a stand-up guy to boot.

    Well, I don't know how the business works. Presumably he makes them all by hand that creates these long lead times? Maybe he lives very far from the post office. I don't know.

    But at least future buyers will know it takes a long while. Like I said, there really should be a disclaimer. If you find that offensive, so be it. I certainly don't mean it as such. Just disappointed with the long fulfillment times.
