    Welcome to the forum, Tomsuper.

    There's a lot of great info and great people here on HF. If you have any questions, just ask and you'll get a wealth of info. I'm sure you'll love the Blackbird, it's been very popular.

    Excellent decision on the hammock and welcome!

    Now it's time for all the goodies, might need to go get a loan. Actually, read thru more of the threads here and you'll find that you can build many of the items you'll need/want for much less coin if you're willing to spend some time if front of a sewing machine. Good luck and have fun!

    Blackbird hugh? Who tipped you off. The rest of us had to spend years looking for the one hammock for us, and you just landed right on it. You're gonna love it. Mule
