    Everything happens for a reason

    I have to admit... I have a Pretty Amazing wife. I consider myself lucky to get to do pretty much anything I want within reason and have full support. Of course I have always been responsible about it.

    She has been camping with me since we met. Never got her on a trail to hike outside of day hikes but she certainly would give it a go. When I bought my first hammock and decided that I could do this camping she thought I was crazy. (She still thinks I'm crazy, but that's just in general.)

    Last night we were discussing Under Quilts, Top Quilts, Tarps, and Hammocks. I explained the mods I want to make to my rig (Note: this hammock was hanging in my house at the time) and that if I had it to do over I would have bought a WBBB. She never expressed interest in Hiking or hammock camping at all... Until now.

    She gave me her thoughts and ideas on the Modifications and then hit me with - Well... get me one and set it up like this (Insert detailed explanation that made sense). I really want to back pack and hammock camp with you and Caleb (My Son) this coming year. So I did what every hammock loving man would do...seized the opportunity.

    Longer Story shortened... She is now the Proud owner of a soon to be Modified ENO Double Nest Onelink Rig (Mine) and.... I have a Warbonnet Blackbird Ordered! Like a Kid in a Candy Store. Hope it works for me, it seems to be a highly recommended Hammock.

    Now to make that DIY Tarp... Or buy one. Hmm Choices.


    Cheers,

    Hoot

    Very nice! Hammocking and backpacking is always better when you can enjoy it with those you care about and like spending time with.
