    Not waiting anymore - first purchase!

    Ah, I can't wait until spring. But by then I should be on my second hammock. I have every intention of picking up a WL Night Owl, but I just ran across the $20 GT "el cheapo" special online again.

    I'm ordering one this week - I'll try to set it up indoors for a virgin hang, then if the weather warms up any, I may try it outdoors. I do have a pad, space blanket, -5 degree sleeping bag, and the tarp off my tent - I might just be able to get away with it.
    I prefer to remain an enigma.

    My grand trunk is my summer setup... But its not near as comfortable as my tablecloth hammock... But the fabric is lighter so it sleeps better in 80* nights...

    The GTUL is a great hammock. They are hard to beat for the price. The first thing I do is get a set of whoopies on those bad boys
    If you ain't havin' fun, you're doin' it wrong

    I've added whoopies to my GT Nano as well. Love that little darlin'.
    The beauty of sunsets,
    The wind in the pines,
    The mountains give these and more...
    Peace of mind.

    IT IS DONE!

    Ordered it this morning. They can ship in 8 hours so it's waiting for me when I get home, right?
