    the Phoenix has arrived!

    Got my 3-season Phoenix Thursday! Within 1 hour I had my Blackbird hanging in the garage and my quilt on. Like being a little kid with your Momma's arms around you; comfy, warm and secure. It was almost 90 degrees, so I guess that is not a good temp test, but I don't think staying warm will be a problem.

    Thanks Hammockgear (especially Thorwren) for making my week! I hope to get a real test around the 23rd. I shall report back. I also need to do a couple of video reviews to put on my blog and Youtube; will let everyone know when I make that happen.

    Good day for me too. I just got my Summer Burrow and Summer Phoenix in. Awesome quality. I would not hesitate to buy from Thorwren again and when it gets a little cooler, I just may!

    I plan to buy the 3-season burrow, but I will have to continue with ramen noodles and PB & J to save up. Good thing I like both and they are pretty versatile foods. That should fix me up nice.
    I just love how the quilt folds up around me. Me feels safe and warm

    Nice choice. I am saving my 3-season burrow as well.

    Summer sucks for getting stuff like this. Now that my incubator is here, though, I'm planning on a burrow.

    Yeah it always seems like I buy winter gear in summer summer gear in winter then I gotta wait to use it

    I love my phoenix its a great piece of gear
    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.
