I will be backpacking around South-East Asia between January and May/June. I'm going to start out in Thailand and probably check out Cambodia and Laos too.
I don't know how much camping I will be doing but I want the freedom of being able to quickly set up camp on the beach and not having to always find accommodation.
So I am just about to buy my first camping hammock and I have pretty much decided on a Hennessy Hyperlite Zip and it occurred that maybe I don't even need to get the rain tarp. Or is that just silly? I wasn't planning on geting any insulation or sleeping bag either. Just a blanket or something. Maybe I need the tarp to protect me from the wind even if there is minimal chance of rain?
What do you guys think? Any info or input appreciated!
