Just to be clear.... You don't _require_ a tarp to go hammock camping. It simply makes the experience more pleasant in inclement weather. But ultimately the choice is yours. You can use heavy gauge painting drop cloths if you want to. There are lots of alternatives that people have come up with. Find a near by building site and negotiate some tyvek. It ain't the prettiest solution but I understand it works very nicely.
