    Fresh Hanger from Kentucky

    Greeting from the bourbon trail!

    I've probably been watching HF members' youtube videos and lurking around HF for a year or so now, just waiting for the right time to "jump in". Well, last night the Blackbird touched down in KY.

    Of course I just had to give it a try, but without proper insulation (besides 'ole six pound synthetic'), I was forced to get.... creative. Two three inch eye hooks, some drilling and a bit of fidgeting later, I was out like a light. I have to say, it was one of the best night's sleep I've ever had.

    I'm hooked. Or should I say hanged? In either case, may god have mercy on my wallet, those UQs are looking pretty tempting.

    Howdy from Cincinnati. Check out the group hangs in the trip planning section. We go to the Red River Gorge every once in a while. Nice way to learn and see other hangers and their rigs. Enjoy your new BB!
