    1st hang in new Dream Sparrow (under the Milky Way!)

    DH#9897 ordered during the lockdown, symmetrical, 2.2 Hex out, 1.6 HyperD in; overcover, peak shelf, cinch buckles, tie-outs and top pocket. It's as great as I hoped it would be (thanks Emily for setting me up!), and my Klymit Hammock V fits perfectly in between the two layers. Randy and Deanna make a quality product, and I'm glad I bit the bullet after having used an 11' Wise Owl for a couple of years.

    So I didn't even bother to unpack my new rig after getting it (coin flip?), and my first night was in the American Basin in the San Juan Mountains of Colorado. Warm, flat lay, I just need to figure out how to release all the tension on the dratted cinch buckles after sleeping!

    Anyway, here's my first night in the Sparrow under the stars at 11,627' MSL..

    Cheers!

    Jeff

    Wow!!!!! Did you see the early morning comet by chance? Looks like a solid night of star gazing you had there with a killer hammock.

    Whoa. That shot is sick. Nice night view of the San Juans. I love that part of CO.

    The Neowise Comet is supposed to be visible for us tonight around 10:30 EST in our NW sky. I don't know how that translates for your locations out West.
    Oooh, shiney! What does THIS button do?

    Nice, so very nice. Gorgeous night sky, just a bit to small to thoroughly enjoy. I have switched back to my Sparrow as a nightly hanger after experimenting, and much approving, the SLD Trail Lair. Many nights in my Sparrow and I'm quite pleased. I like to change it up.

    Haven't seen it at night yet, atmosphere has gotten mucky the last few days.

    Is there any way to post normal-size images in these forums? That little thumbnail thing drives me nuts, despite the fact that you can click on it to enlarge it a bit.

    I must confess I haven't figured the differences in image posting formats out.

    You would have to uploaded image to a photo hosting website and then share the link to your post. I haven't done this much on this forum.
