    Do I get a kickback?

    I'm only kidding. The BB sells itself.

    I took it to the park where I went walking with a fellow hiking group member. The usual tent v. hammock discussion was followed by me pulling out the BB and he pulling out an REI quarterdome - guy had his backpack in his pickup. (Retirees can go any time!) He also has a Hennessy but hasn't really used it yet, because he's still doing this back and forth thing about the hammock. He starts setting up his tent and tries to sell me on it while he's laying out the pieces; I throw straps around two lil trees, tug to adjust, stake out the tie outs, and I lay there in my hammock while he's fighting with the hub/poles. At some point he realizes I'm done and says, you awake in there?

    I won.

    He observed my nice flat back, the footbox, the shelf, and the pad sleeve, and started asking about how much it weighs. Which is less than his model of Hennessy, actually. He's already saying he needs to sell the Hennessy to make money to get the Blackbird.

    Brandon just needs a crew in a van driving from park to park, setting up a BB and laying around for a while. If You Build It, They Will Come.

    I've said I should get a kickback, too - I am always selling people on my blackbird when they see me out with it. I was really happy when Brandon set up a website, because I had somewhere to send people to buy their own!
