    New in Columbus, OH

    I am new and would love to participate in a group hang around Columbus, OH. I am also curious if there is anyone that has a Warbonnet Blackbird I could check out. I am thinking about buying one but have never seen one. Does anyone is this area own one and are you pretty happy with it? Thanks!

    Sure, I'm in Ctown every weekday. Live a bit north in Sunbury, if you wanna slip up some time you could check out a std BB and the XLC.

    May not make the group hang this month. Will be riding my bike on GOBA, hoping to take my portable Witch hammock stand so I can hang all week. There are over 2000 registered riders, anyone wanna take bets on how many will be hammocking?

    Hope you all get something on the calendar.

    David,
    That would be awesome. Do you want to coordinate off list? Not sure what the normal procedure on the forums is (I am a newbie). I would love to check out both hammocks. I am looking very hard at the BB XLC (I am 6'3). When would be a good time for you to meet up? Thanks again David!

    I'm free any weekend except the 14 - 16th. Friday nights work best for me now that I've commenced my regular work schedule but Saturdays are doable.

    With the exception of June 15th, I could make any weekend this month.

    Justin, I also have a Blackbird; if we both make it to the hang, you're welcome to try mine out (FYI, 1.7oz, single-layer, 250lbs). It's my first camping hammock, and I've only used it once, so I have no standard by which to judge it. That having been said, I have no complaints.

    The only weekend I have open in June is probably the 8th. The rest of June is kind of crazy. If anyone goes in Ohio the weekend of the 8th let me know. Thanks for all the help guys! Hopefully I can get my hammock setup figured out pretty soon. I am definitely looking forward to ordering one!

    i'm down with whatever the consensus is. I'll be furloughed one day a week for 11 weeks starting the 8th of July. My first day off will be the 12th. It'll be 3day weekends for duration. So I'll be getting out as much as possible.

    I'm out for anything except this weekend. I'm on-call for work next weekend, and I'll be in Maine on vacation the 21st through the 29th.

    If it happens to be Mohican this weekend (I know it's a long shot with late notice) I'm in, otherwise, I'll be out in July
