    I figure this must be the busiest time of year for WB (pre-summer trips) but, man, I wish he could kick the customer service up a notch. Despite all the POVs on this board to the tune of 'every minute Brandon spends writing an email is a minute he's not making a hammock', I feel like there's an obligation to keep your customers up to speed - especially when the website says two weeks and you need five. It doesn't take much for me to be your biggest fan - even a cut-and-paste email update would make me feel like I haven't been lost in the mix.

    Anyways I know I'm going to be super happy with the product when it does arrive, but I just hate coming out of this feeling like he's doing me a favour. Sorry for the rant but if I can't do it here, I'm not sure there's anywhere else.
    I agree he should update website. This is what I read on his website;
    "Items normally ship in approximately 1
    week while orders containing
    backordered items will normally ship
    within 3 weeks."
    And nothing is listed as backordered.

    Success! I knew that the minute I voiced my qualms with the process, I would receive my shipping notice. That's how it always works. Now I just need to complain more about not winning the lottery...

    Apr 26-May 29 = 4.5 weeks pre-notice. Now it's a wait for (gasp!) international shipping to Canada. So stoked!

    Thumbs up

    I got my shipping confirmation and tracking Number! 3 weeks from order to shipping, now just waiting for delivery. Maybe it will be here for the weekend, but weatherman makes it sound like I may have to travel very very far to get out of the rain.
    I might have to clean out the garage to have a place to practice hanging it.

    Ordered a WBBB for my dad to use at his log cabin in NW Ontario (All mattresses get eaten by mice!).

    @andrewgee I ordered late at night on May 16th, shipping notice on the 29th, arrived June 6th here in Toronto. That's not bad for a handmade product, crossing the border.
    Bonus: no customs duties.

    Noticed some small changes: A reinforced bit on the stuff sack. Grosgrain strap for tying back the bug net. Nice. Constant evolution.

    Got my hammock in the mail yesterday. WBB 1.1 DL with adj. webbing and a mamajamba tarp. haven't taken it out of stuff sack yet. maybe this weekend.
    A few things I need to do before taking it into the woods:
    1. I need to rig up suspension for tarp. I have lots of para cord and some shock cord so it should just be a matter of setting things up and playing around a bit
    2. Get some tree straps, I am thinking Eno Slap straps.
    3. make or buy a pad. I have a dozen space blankets and was thinking I would try gluing a layer or 2 of 1/16" closed cell foam (normally used to wrap stuff for shipping) to a space blanket with spray on contact glue and cut to shape. Sort of a DIY reflectex pad. I have a foam pad now that would work but its way thicker and heavier then I really want in a hammock I think.

    All sound reasonable but don't buy the Eno Slap Straps.
    the straps for the WBBB should be plenty
