    First time set up

    I finally got a few minutes to play with my new WBRR this afternoon and I love it. I ve never even been in a hammock before but after doing my research here ordered the RR and got it a month ago.

    I set it up on my deck between 19' 6x6s using the data from HC. I got in and it was too low so I measured the Hammock Length and it was 8" longer than I had estimated previously. I moved the anchor points up, eyeballing it, and it was much better. I re-ran HC and the anchor point height it gave me happened to be the same! Beginner's luck...

    Anyway, I did something unexpected when I got in...I was lieing there SMILING! I had no idea I would like it that much.

    Now I've got to get some gear together and try it for several hours and then overnight.

    Thanks for your help on my journey so far.
    I'm a beginner, novice, rookie ... with much to learn.

    I enjoyed a lounging hammock for many years but it never occurred to me to sleep in one overnight until coming here in the quest for UL gear.

    It's actually less UL than sleeping on the ground but the comfort level ...

    But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed. (Luke 5:16 NIV)

    He said to them, “But now let the one who has a moneybag take it, and likewise a knapsack. And let the one who has no sword sell his cloak and buy one." (Luke 22:36 ESV)

    While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. (1 Thessalonians 5:3 ESV)

    SLCpod - my excitement level is higher than when I ordered the WBRR. We re in an ice storm now like much of the country so need to wait a while to get out.

    Once you take an overnight pack trip you will be hooked. Nothing better than hiking for 10 miles and knowing you will sleep in absolute comfort, wake up not sore, and look forward to the next trip.

    Great hammock, i am too big for a standard size hammock like the rr so i made a custom diy bridge, that i have sent over to a friend to do some extra custom details to it for me that were way out of my skill range so i am still waiting for my chance to get thet feeling, congrats on your purchase, IMO, The rr is one of the nicest hammocks out there and if i were smaller i would of bought one when i first started looking at bridges. With all that being said i had Lost_Biker over at Underquilts.com make me a custom set of quilts for my bridge, tq and uq that turned out really nice, if your thinking about quilts then you should check him out, he has the most reasonable prices out there, IMO, and the quality is top notch. You can also check out the first link in my signature to see the custom made winter tarp he made me for my bridge.
