    What Would You Do with TWO HHs?

    At the REI Attic Sale today the boyfriend (yes, the very same thieving one) found a barely used Hennessy Backpacker Hammock for $15.00. No rainfly, no straps, just the hammock. The tag read - and I quote - "Looks pretty OK". I'd say it was a great deal...

    However, this now means the boy has two identical Hennessy hammocks. I asked him "You already have that hammock, what are you going to do with the second one?" His response: "Spare parts?"

    So I ask the Peanut Gallery: What would YOU do with a second identical hammock?

    Send one or both of them to 2QZQ. You'll have 2 entirely different hammocks afterward

    Loan it to friends, let your kids use it. Let your wife try it out.

    I have about 7 here at the house. My wife and kids all have one, so that leaves me a couple for loaners and a couple for other reasons.

    Original (non-asym) ultralight - my second HH, the first was the original model from 2000. I swapped for this one to Tom Hennessy. It is now my lightweight loaner.
    Cammo Ultralight - very rare one, never going to part with this one.
    Hyperlight - converted to WS. It will probably become my youngest son's hammock when he gets bigger.
    Ultralight in coyote brown (my oldest son uses this one) it is the one I lived in for 6 months on my first tour to Iraq.
    Adventure Racer (my youngest son uses this one for now)
    Deep Jungle (my wife has that one)
    Desert Hammock - heavyweight loaner.

    I did have another HH that was one of the heavier models for a loaner, it died because the person I loaned it to screwed it up. I salvaged some parts off of it.

    I agree with Sgt Rock... use it as a loaner. I find it is easier to get friends to go if you have stuff they can use already. And of course, if you keep it to use as a loaner, it is pretty much an emergency item for you as well. In case something were to happen to your main hammock.

    Ahh, I like it. Use it to convert others to the hammocking cause! Contingent upon having kids, a wife... or friends for that matter.

    If you have an extra hammock the wife and friends may come along. Eventually this could lead to kids.

    Sell 'em both, and buy a Blackbird.
