I thought about making a ground tarp, then I happened upon a Black Diamond Betamid at a yard sale for a song plus I put together a Speers hammock kit and now i prefer to hang than the ground plus the silnylon canopy for the hammock is 8 x 10 so I figure, if I had to go to the ground, I could use that. I do use a lightweight tent when I double up with my brother as he does not like hammock camping. To each, their own. As long as I am in the woods, it's all good !I'll carry extra weight if it's for my comfort. I like warm and food
Zelph, I with you 100% on that philosophy. As a big guy myself, a couple extra pounds one way of the other is not that big of deal. I finally have may big 4 base weight down to the 10 lb. range and look forward to testing it out.
All things relative. Big guys, big muscles an extra 10 lbs is kid stuff, can't even feel it
