I'm going to try out hammock camping, but I'm a full-time grad student so I'm on a very cheap budget.
I've seen the Skeeter Beeter and Moskito Traveller out there pretty cheap so I think those will be fine for me to start out. If you can beat $40 for the Traveller or $42 for the Skeeter Beeter, please let me know.
For a tarp, I think I'm going with the Guide Gear 12x12 for $30. Again, if you can beat that, I'm all ears.
