Oh crap, my hammock’s busted!

Torn Zipper – Warbonnet Blackbird

Well, it’s only 9 days until I leave for the AT and I’ve got a major equipment failure! 😦 I was in Atlanta at a regatta this weekend, sleeping in the club’s campground in my hammock. I woke Sunday morning to a torn zipper (see pic above). The hammock is a Warbonnet Blackbird I bought in 2015.

I’ve hiked 700 miles on the AT and done numerous other overnights in the hammock, so it’s been used a lot. I contacted Warbonnet on Sunday, got an immediate response and it’s on the way back for repairs. My fingers are crossed that it can be repaired and returned by next Tuesday, May 7th. Thanks in advance to the staff at Warbonnet for bending over backwards to get me onto the trail on time.

Oh, and by the way. The regatta at Lake Lanier was awesone, although the throwout race cost me 4th place; finished 6th instead.

T-9 and getting ready to go!
