After expressing interest in hammock camping (remembering afternoons in a WWII canvas model when I was a boy), my kids bought a GT UL Skeeter Beeter for me at the local outdoor store.
People who have them seem to like them well enough, except for the suspension system, which adds to the cost. Tarps seem to be an expensive add-on no matter whose hammock you buy.
I'm wondering which I should do:
A)Stick with the GT as the cheapest option to try out hammock camping, jury-rig a suspension as needed, and buy a tarp to use with any hammock; or
B) Return the GT and apply the money to a WB Blackbird as the setup I may eventually go to. It sounds as though it has a good suspension system to begin with, so the tarp would be the only additional cost.
Obviously, no right or wrong answer here, but what would you experienced tree hangers advise?
