    WBBB First Hang

    It ocurred to me that I never posted about my first hang in my WBBB 1.1 dbl. last October. I went with a couple guys to Heaton Flats for an overnight and it was AWESOME! It was sooooo cozy and comfortable in the hammock that I didn't want to get out of it.

    Everything about it went perfectly. I could not have asked for a more beautiful first hammock experience!

    More pics and video coming soon--I have a trip to the mountains this weekend with rain and snow in the forecast!

    Nice pic. Gotta love having a nice comfy chair (in addition to a bed) for hanging out around camp!

    You bet! That and not sleeping on the ground were my primary motivations for switching to hammocks. But one hang made a complete convert of me. It was so dreamy laying in that thing.

    I wish I had trees nearby for this. I'll have to figure out where I'm going to setup my first hang before mine gets here.

    I don't have any suitable trees in my backyard so I use a TurtleLady stand and love it. The TurtleDog variant is also very nice:

    Don't despair! I had to drive two hours in horrible Friday night rush hour traffic to get to my first hang! And it was soooooo worth it!

    In fact, all the places to camp with trees are an hour or more away from me--so I often pass on the new gear that may be tempting me and use the money for gas money instead.

    Wonder how upset "She-who-must-be-obeyed" would be if I built one of those for the bedroom...
