    New from Eastern WA.

    New to the forum and a newb to hanging.

    Started with a HH Ultralite Asym, bone stock, used it one night on a through hike and loved it, with a couple exceptions due to my inexperience. Slept great with a bag and pad, but was chilled while "chilling" out during an afternoon t-storm. Also wasn't a huge fan of the bottom entry and wanted a bigger tarp.

    Wanted a place to chill, more tarp room and a good nights sleep. Instead of v1.1, I went straight to...

    v2.0. WBBB double, Yeti and HMG Cuben Tarp. I haven't even hung this one! Looking for any good tips or tricks, links, videos, etc. On using this setup. Any suspension upgrades?

    WA area hangs?

    Thanks

    Vince

    welcome fellow Spokanite! depending on what suspension came on the wbb you can upgrade it to save weight but for ease of use you can't beat the adjustable webbing. I would love to get a look at the cuben tarp. if you want we could meet up at the bowl and pitcher or somewhere else handy sometime. I 'd be down for a WA hang if it falls on a weekend I can get away.

    You may have to wait a little while longer. Weather has been miserable here. I don't mind the cold, but cold, wet and windy and I'm OUT!
