I have to agree with everyone who says "go with what you like". I am discovering something new every time I go out with my hammock, and I'm always finding some new innovation on the forums.
I CAN'T sleep on the ground, or on a cot, or a mat even. I've never been comfortable with any of those set ups. I prefer sleeping in my hammock to my own bed nowadays, but that's just me. I like being creative, and realize that I can indeed make most of my own gear, and that gives me lots of variety and excitement for the next adventure.
With all that said, I am still learning the ins and outs of hammocking, but I know that it's something I deeply enjoy. All my friends think I've gone overboard with it, but it's the cheapest and easiest way to enjoy the wilds for me on my time off.
If you find that you enjoyed tent camping more, and it doesn't feel like hammock camping is as exciting, it may just simply mean that you prefer tent camping. No harm done! Just get out there and enjoy yourself! Really, our quality of life isn't measured by the things that hinder us, but more so by the things that we truly enjoy. If it's within your power to enjoy things more, then you should by all means do so!
