I have watched 50 or so YouTube videos on the construction, set up, and use of the camping hammock. I have noticed that everyone has these ultralight high end purchased or DIY silNylon tarps. Is there any reason, remember my lack of sewing skillz, that should not use a Mao-Mart or Harbor Freight Tools tarp? Especially in my hanging infantcy I am not real comfortable sewing a tarp. Hemming the fabric on my tied hammock was pushing the envelope...I used packing tape to hold the fabric in-place whilst I thread injected.
