    Got my first hammock today!

    I found this forum a little over a month ago while searching for a better, more comfortable sleep system over uneven ground. I don't know anyone with a hammock and have never been in one but it sounded like the way to go.

    I ordered a WBRR and received it today, only waiting three weeks. I'm sick right now so can't get out, but will throw it up ASAP.

    I have a lot to learn and enjoy your forum. Thanks for being here.

    Great to hear! From what I have read, you made a great choice.

    Now feel better and enjoy your first of many hangs!

    Get better soon...so the hammock sickness can begin in earnest.

    Got an RR for my bride and added a 0 degree Lynx UQ, she loves it. I am too hefty for it but very impressed by the design (including the Lynx) and build quality.

    Now the madness begins. First it's a hammock then it's the Under quilt, next a top quilt. Then more hammocks. From there you move to Do It Yourself Projects. Oh wait that's me.

    Welcome to the forums from Ohio.

    Hope you feel better soon. Illness is making the rounds in Ohio here lately too.

    I bet you are gonna love your hammock.
    With a radical sense of hope, I strive for the seemingly impossible.
