    Hammock Envy

    My first and only hammock is an ENO DN. I thought at the time by adding a bug net down the road I could have a totally modular set up and be tickled pink with it. Well that was before I found this forum. Now I want a WBBB, double layer so I can tuck my pad between the two. Oh let's not forget about the gear loft off to the side. Yeah I can picture myself having all sorts of stuff sitting at arms reach. Then one of them fancy tarps to go along with it that has doors that close nice and tight. Don't get me wrong, I love my hammock but there is something about the BB that calls to me.

    I wonder if EBay has any rules about selling a kidney so I can afford it. Oh an lets hope my wife doesn't see this. She's already shaking her head at me every time I mention an UQ.

    The envy gets worse if you ever get out to a group hang and actually see and try out other hammocks and gear. So basically, don't go., or you can just go and you'll meet all kinds of good people an your need for gear will be fueled.
    Don't let life get in the way of living.

    Kiwi, I have been thinking about having my mother in law teach me not to sew my fingers to some material. I'd like to try to make some of my own gear.

    I have not made it to a group hang yet, but I have gear envy after all the research I have been done on UQ and Tablecloth hammocks.

    Is that an offer? I may just take you up on it once I have a few stuff sacks under my belt. I can't walk a straight line never mind sew one at this point.
