Eugeneius mentioned in his trip report of going hammock camping without a tarp. I've been hammock camping for 1 year now and it never occurred to me to go without a tarp.

I may take a small tarp when it's predicted to be a good weather weekend, but to go without -- Maybe this comes from living in WV where if you look at the sky wrong it will spit on you. But even without rain, I like taking my tarp for sun or wind protection or a modicum of privacy.

I was wondering if others ever hammock camp without a tarp.
