    Guilty pleasure's

    Ok, I've gone and done it.....

    I've ordered a WBBB.....and im feeling a bit guilty..
    I'm supposed to be saving for a trip to NZ later this year, so at this rate i could be living off rice and beans....

    I recently bought a pretty nice hammock off evilbay (DD clone) and have slept in it a couple of nights and im getting the "hang" of it (sorry). In fact i love it, still ironing out a few issues but enjoying it loads!
    But reading all the great stuff here and watching all the vid's on YT about the WBBB (i blame Shug mostly) I just couldn't hold out any longer...

    1.7dl should keep my substantial frame off the ground and looks cool in olive too! Im hoping that the foot box will bring joy to my feet and legs, the shelf will house fabulous fluids to wet my whistle at night, maybe a hat and the tie outs make for a roomier feel.

    Im currently convincing myself that i don't need/want a Superfly, thankfully they are backordered, im not sure i can wait the quoted 3+ weeks for one to be made anyways. I think my savings account will be grateful...

    Though it would save on shipping costs.....


    Thanks for letting me vent,

    (a very excited) Trev

    A large portion of the worlds populations lives on rice and beans... you'd be developing a better global perspective

    Yup

    In a couple of months you will have forgotten about that money you shouldn't have spent... but you will still have that tarp.
