Trying my new hammock

Today, I got my new Warbonnet Backbird hammock in the mail.  I was so excited to try it out, that I used cheap carabiners for the rigging because I couldn't find any others.  Guess what?  Boundless enthusiasm alone will not keep you aloft like in Mary Poppins.

But I also learned that if your hammock rigging does slip and cause you to fall to the ground, it's not a big deal.  Startling, but not painful.  I will have to remember to not be afraid to fall.


  1. Hemlock! I love it! I fell... well slid down slowly my first time hanging b/c I forgot to secure my straps. haha! So when are we going to "hang out?" haha!

  2. I'm glad I'm not the only one! Let's plan another trip soon. :)
