    Bit the bullet

    Well I have always had DIY hammock except for my Enos and this past weekend I tried out a Warbonnet Blackbird. Well after that brief lay I have went ahead and bit the bullet and ordered me a Blackbird. Can't wait til it gets here and once it does make sure you keep an eye out for a new video featuring me and the blackbird.

    Welcome to the dark side!

    Of course my transition went from the Blackbird and now I'm going out and giving the Traveler it's first real shot in November. Shaved quite a bit off my shelter weight with a papa smurf detachable bug sock.

    I'll give a run down after the 3 day testing.

    Look forward to your report. Which one did you end up getting?
