    Pictures of WBBB and Superfly in Porch Mode

    Thought I would share some pics of my WBBB 1.1 DL from my most recent camping trip with the Boy Scouts on the Tallapoosa River here in Alabama.

    I have the Super Fly set up in porch mode with a Grand Trunk Ultra Light serving as a gear hammock. Lines are self tensioning using shock cord with Zing-It. The SF is attached to a continuous ridge line with prussiced soft shackles and tied off using a knot bone on one end and a figure 9 on the other end ala' Opie.


    Suggestions are welcome.

    Thanks for looking,
    BB

    That's one sweet looking rig. As for suggestions, I would suggest getting out more often! But seriously, make any converts?

    Already a few hangers in the troop but I am the only Warbonnet guy. Most use ENO's and crap straps and there are couple Hennessy users too. Teenage boys go for whatever is the least (apparent) work. I show them the error of their ways particularly as they sag further and further toward the ground.

    I'm liking the idea of the second gear hammock. Do you use tree straps for it? Do you ever find yourself sitting on you pack while in the hammock?

    Denis,

    For the gear hammock it has woopie slings with 6 foot tree straps that I tie marlin spike hitches. This is certainly overkill for a gear hammock but I also use the GTUL as hammock on different occasions. If all i did was hang gear in it the tree straps wouldn't be necessary.

    On to the second question. I don't find myself sitting on my pack. The webbing suspension on the WBBB does not stretch much if at all and I weigh 215. i leave a good foot to 18 inches between the bottom of the WBBB and the top of the GTUL and it has not been a problem.
