    Hi and Welcome,
    Look at purchasing a book, "The Ultimate Hang" CLICK THIS
    You don't say where you live in this vast state, but hooking up with someone nearby and trying their gear, helps a ton.
    Check out all of Shug's YOUTUBE video's. Entertaining and very informative and great for all us "visual" learners. CLICK THIS for Shugs channel (be prepared to spend hours and hours watching his circus antics (riding a unicycle into his hammock) and learning from his hammock gear videos).
    Then, build a cheat-sheet/spreadsheet of prices for hammocks, top quilts (TQ), Under quilts (UQ), suspensions and such. then watch this places 'for sale' like a hawk. You will know a good deal when you see it and can be the hawk, swooping in for good used gear at great prices. Both my TQ, both my UQ, my hammock and one tarp, were all purchased that way.

    +1 on the book, and for sure watch the videos. Welcome from Memphis, TX. If you get into this like I did, the best way is to get with others at a group hang.
