    New Sniper!

    Ordered a whole new setup yesterday. Snipe, pillow, Oldman Winter, LST, plus a HG Burrow & Incubator. Couldn't be more excited!!

    Everything's in black...already heard from Marty at WL who apologizes for not having black whoopsies... a couple of orange threads looks good on a Giants fan's rig, anyhow.

    Maybe there's a black sock out there somewhere that will fit the 11' hammocks...? I like the design of the MMG SEEPsock.

    The discussions on this site had everything to do with the decision. Plus I feel like Shug's armada was a bit intimidating. So now, with two HH's and an ENO and the WL and a squadron Mexican beach hammocks, I have something approaching force parity.

    Next year maybe a bridge with a downmat inside for when going to ground is expedient. And I want a WBBB too. Please forward schedules for H.A. Meetings!

    Stay tuned for updates.

    Congrats!

    I think you will like the Snipe. Still my favorite hammock. Take some pictures of your set up when you get it

    Snipes are addicting. Come to think about all of the WL line is addicting
    I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.

    I agree. I can't keep off their website and from pressing the order button.

    You'll be a happy camper, Steve. I love my Snipe. Spent the whole weekend in it, sandwiched on both sides by some HG loft. And to think....the best hangin' of the year still awaits us!

    Have fun,
