    Hi from CO

    Hey everyone, Just wanted to officially introduce myself. I have been spending a ton of time reading on this forum trying to get ready for winter. I have had a HHUL Asym for about 5 years, but only used it for occasional solo camping trips. I hurt my back a while back and have been in pain non stop until I started sleeping in my hammock. So I dove off the deep end. After a ton of research I ordered a WBBB and superfly on 9/7/12, it came in yesterday!!!!! I can not be more happy with it, and the tarp. I guess I got really lucky with my order, some people have waited 4-6 weeks to get there stuff. I have been sleeping in the hammock almost every night with a pad and sleeping bag, and decided I want/need an UQ, ordered a HG Phoenix and Burrow. Can not wait till those come in, or I need to find a way to hang a hammock in my room. LOL. I have already bought a ton of zing it and amsteel and made a set of whoopie slings, adj ridge line, and tarp ridgelines. Next project is making my own gathered end hammock and maybe even a tarp. Thanks for all the hard work in putting this together and keeping this place updated and running. I hope to make some of the local group hangs.

    Welcome to the forums! If you'd like to meet some more hangers, and see a wide variety of gear setups, we are currently planning a Colorado group hang on the weekend of October 5th, somewhere in the Front Range.

    Thanks, Already read that and am hoping to get off from work to make that work out, even if I can not make it out all three days. Have not tested my gear to that temp yet, so I guess I have a goal now, hope my UQ/TQ come in.

    Thanks for the welcome, appreciate it. I saw that you are selling an UQ too, any chance you will make a deal to someone local? I do not know much about that specific UQ though and have not had a chance to do any research. But to not cause a problem in this section, I will come and post on your thread here in a bit. And again thanks for the welcome.

    Welcome from Oregon. Oh how I miss life on the Front Range. I wish that I had found hammocks back when we still lived in Colorado. Enjoy your new WBBB.
