    It's HERE!!

    Okay, Okay, so....my Warbonnet 1.1 Dbl is sitting here in the box. I have not opened it, as I am in a common front cubicle area while they re-carpet and paint my office.

    The box is mystically glowing, and there is a slight scent of Pine emanating from it. It is calling me. The woods are calling me. I must be strong. Must....be....strong.....

    Ha! The folks at the firm I work for gather around my office when I get a package. The lady that brings the mail up has even started trying to guess what's in the box based on the weight and the 'shake factor'; tarp, hammock, knife, gizmo...

    They get all bummed out when it turns out to be something work related.
    Hope that box gets opened soon. Birds don't like being boxed.

    I will be hanging in this BB this weekend, if even for the day! I will take pics with my cell phone (no camera operating as yet). This is hard, very hard...not to just up and leave, or go hang it outside the office alongside the building!

    Congrats on your new hammock. I remember when I first got my BB. You will love it, it's one of the best purchases I have made for outdoor gear.

    What's stopping you?

    When I was in Florida, I had a hammock shipped to my office. My office happened to be the main office/branch of the Credit Union I worked for. Well, I took my new hammock right on outside and set it up next to the drive-thru. Talk about getting some weird looks!

    I guess it helped that I was pretty much in charge. I thought about writing myself up, but decided against it.

    ===> LOL! Well, we have a new VP, and her offices are right here. My usual office is across the street. Here, the heavy jewelry crowd generally does not have a sense of humor, although they must, if I am still here!

    Don't use the Hammock Force. It will have you hauled out the door before you know your moving!

    Funny, mine had sound. Sounded faintly like crickets with a gentle breeze blowing through the Quaking Aspens and gave off a scent like Mesquite smoke and rib eyes cooking. Could have sworn there was a hint of Maker's Mark too...

    Enjoy!!
    Mark is the name and If there is more than one way to understand what I just said....I meant the good one.
