    WBBB in Northern NJ????

    So, I'm seriously considering taking the plunge and ordering a 1.1 dbl. I've sold off some non-needed gear and have the funding needed. Before I take the plunge, I'd like to see one, try the feel of it and watch the hang procedure.
    I first heard of hanging from a had a buddy several years ago who had a Hennessy and loved it. He offered to let me try it out, but he was struck by lightning while in his hammock and killed.
    Are there any WBBB owners in the NNJ area who would be willing to give me a tour of theirs?

    Thanks,

    Jim

    If you can, take the plunge. You will not regret it.

    The lightning incident you referred to..... Round Valley Reservoir? Regardless, terrible accident. I'd be more than willing to sample the luxury of the WBBB. PM me.

    Sorry to hear that. I remember that happening and heard about it on a backpacking forum I'm on.

    If I was going to be at my other home in PA soon, I'd meet up with you around the Del H2O Gap and let you try one out.

    Thanks for the offers. I will be PM'ing soon.

    Yes, it was the Round Valley incident. I was invited to go on the trip but couldn't clear my schedule. Kinda glad I didn't. My take is that he could have either won the lottery, or got struck by lightning - but, he didn't buy a lottery ticket that day.
