    I took the plunge

    I also went ahead and ordered a 1.1/1.7 BB. I was out last weekend with my son for a night and since I sold one of my HH's I was forced to go back to the ground . I figure this is like hitting rock bottom (literally) before being raised for good . Hopefully I'll be seeing it in a few weeks. Now all I need to do is plan the next trip!

    Welcome

    A few pointers on how to secretly watch your mail box for the incoming BlackBird.

    1. make it look like yer going out to get something out of the car.

    2. one word "Camouflage"

    3. NEVER let any one know your expecting a BlackBird.
    (mail carriers fight temptation every day, knowing they had a Warbonnet BlackBird in there hands might send them over the edge)

    4. when delivery day is pending Fight the urge to camp by the mail box.
    (that causes suspicion and make the mail carrier think you like them as more than just a friend)
    by the way where would be a nice but cheep place to take a Postal employee say onna friday night after a movie?

    5. if you are involved with some one (spouse, lover, or mail carrier) do not let them near your BlackBird.
    If you do go ahead and order them there own BlackBird. (easier in the long run seeings how they will see how much you are enjoying yours and want to covet it)



    These are just some of the basics, Im still working on How to get kicked out of the house with out it ending in divorce so you all can spend more hours devoted to "Hang Time"

    Being a snorer is pretty effective.

    Good Lord, man! You speak the truth. My wife snuck into the backyard Sunday evening and took a long nap in my BB with new SnugFit underneath. Was I going to get a chance to nap, too? Ooohhhh nnnnooooooooo...of COURSE not!

    Thankfully (I think) my wife thinks I'm a wacko and won't come near my hammocks.

    Now you've done it! You had to say it and put it out here for all to see. Do you know what you've done?!?

    You've jinxed it!
    For the love of humanity...take it back right now while there's still time!

    you might be on to something there

    Ok while your setting up said BlackBird the spouse WILL be watching waiting fo the moment they can jump in and claim it.
    Urinate on the Base of the Tree/pole (do this in plain view)
    It just might be enough to gross them out keeping them away from your prize
    if not it will confuse the hell out of the dog.

    That right there is funny stuff! The visual literally made me laugh out loud. I have 2 dogs and the thought of them tilting their heads out of confusion struck my funny bone.

    This is a funny thread!

    Of course, they are absolutely correct (cept maybe that thing about peeing on my hammock). DO NOT let anyone try that hammock unless you are prepared to get them one of their own, lest you loose yours. I speak from the halls of experience on this one. Also, don't let them near a SnugFit; I miss mine.
    Trust nobody!
