    I've joined the Blackbird club!

    It's official .... I placed my order with Brandon for a double 1.1 with adjustable webbing straps! He estimates about a 3 week turn around time.

    You folks have talked up his hammocks so well, that I simply couldn't resist!

    You must be anxious!

    If you are one of those rare cases that doesn't fall in love on the first date, take her out again, and again. Get to know her a little. Just look around the field, you won't find a better companion.

    Welcome to the club MAD777. I've got the same hammock and it's a winner. But I'll tell you right now, don't think that you are going to stop after buying just one hammock.

    But ... that's why I bought the Cadillac of hammocks for my first one, so I wouldn't have to "upgrade" later!

    Been there, done that

    I laid down in a Blackbird for the first time at Trail Daze and was thoroughly impressed. The Blackbird is well made and incredibly comfortable! Brandon has an excellent product out there that is very worthy of the acclaim it's recieved.

    Don't forget about all the glow-in-the-dark accessories out there. They're just plain fun!

    I just received a MacCat Ultra SpinnUL last week from Brian. I've made quilts which I can use as top quilts, and I have all summer to make an under quilt.

    I'm in deep!
