    whew! Sometimes I'm just so glad I'm a completely frickin' average height (5' 9.5").

    Sometimes I have to stretch to grab something up high, but that's acceptable.
    When it seems like the night will last forever
    And there's nothing left to do but count the years
    When the strings of my heart start to sever
    And stones fall from my eyes instead of tears
    I will walk alone by the black muddy river
    And dream me a dream of my own
    -Jerry

    I will be taking the Dangerbird back out into the back yard tonight and giving it another round of tests. I want this thing to work for me, but we shall see. Good news is, my fiancée absolutely loves it

    Well there is that.

    And if you need someone else to test it, you know where I am!

    Just made a video, uploading it to YouTube right now.

    I have a different opinion now, I really like this thing. I have no idea what was going on the other night and why I couldn't get a flat lay. Maybe it was too late and I just wasn't doing something right. I have set up my hammocks so many times I can do it with my eyes shut, so maybe I just wasn't thinking straight or what not. Who knows...

    I will say that I never disliked the Dangerbird, I just had an issue with it the fiirst night setting it up. My fiancee was in it for about a half hour today and she said again that she really liked it. Though, then she laid in my Blackbird and loved that as well lol

    I'm glad it worked out for you Yukon. Sounds like a stellar hammock. Those tri hammocks are pretty cool too.

    Getting into the hammock was a little strange for me the first time because I needed to avoid the tie outs.

    Hi Yukon,
    I have the Roaming Gnome and I also had a tough time trying to figure out how to get in and out of the hammock with the pull outs sort of being in the way...so I just use the one up by my shoulder and I don't use the other pull out. Hopefully that will help you and or your fiance'

    BTW: I love my hammock, so roomy and comfy...Randy does some pretty amazing work!!
