Hey everyone, I've been lurking here for a while but finally registered a username and decided to post.

I have been backpacking for years with a tent but I have decided to try out a hammock and see how I like it. I've done my fair share of research on hammocks and asked questions at outdoors stores, but I'm not sure what I should do about a tarp. I know that is a very trivial question and there are a lot of existing threads on the topic so I will do some searching. Any advice would be appreciated, however

Thanks, and if you're ever in the southern states feel free to PM me and set up a trip.
