Well im a noob to this hammock thing. I just bought a eno dd have taken some naps in the back yard but that's about it so far. Ive always been a tent camper as a family of five that has been my only option, but my oldest son will be bridgeing into boy scouts this fall. and then we will be camping just him and I with the troop and this looked like a better solution then two small tents.
As a noob I do have some questions though first in trying to keep the price low what kind of tarp and what size do I need, also what does cant have to do with a tarp choice. Next do i really need a underquilt cant I just use a extra sleeping bag and modfy it to work like a pea pod I have 3-4 old sleeping bags that I could use this for. If all goes well I can see replaceing gear with better latter down the line but cant swing it at the start up. any help would be great oh and im 6,4 and about 280 was 320 but hard work and life stlye changes have helped fix that Thanks in advance
