    It's Here!

    Why, my nice mailman brought me a package from Skokie, IL just now.

    It's Grand Trunk Ultralight!

    It's so little.....going to try to string it up in the cellar later today. Don't quite know about spending the night in it, but a test hang is certainly in order!
    I prefer to remain an enigma.

    Nice piece of gear you have there. Be very careful. I've gone down for just a test hang and woke up many hours later.
    If you ain't havin' fun, you're doin' it wrong

    I don't think I can say it enough, I like the GT Ultralight so much that one wasn't enough, I own three. I do recommend swapping out the stock climbing rope suspension for tree straps, whoopie slings and toggles.

    How tall are you? I couldn't ever get diagonal on mine so I moved up to the Single and even use the Double sometimes... I really want the UL to work, for weight reasons, though.
