    Yeah chinese harbor freight usually has very cheap
    camo tarps. Just realize these are heavy and loud in the wind
    and you will want to upgrade *soon*

    just a fyi on the ENO bugnet. It's made to fit a ENO hammock and both are short compared to most hammocks. It's built like a tank and I like the design but it's short.

    I use a Tenth Wonder UL tarp, which I got for 35 dollars. It's 18oz, and comes with Wood stakes, and guy lines. You can find it herehttp://www.ebay.com/itm/Tenth-Wonder...item5655f5b230

    That's an interesting looking tarp, and if you got it for $35, good job. Though right now it looks like someone getting it here in the US. Is going to pay at least $50-$60. For a touch more you can get something like a tadpole or WB Edge and have a lighter tarp.

    Just my opinion.

    Poly tarps are great to figure out basic setups and get the brain juices flowin'

    I checked it because I was not sure what his version was. There was thread or somebody's trail journal about bug nets where the point was made that one that goes to the ground also provides a shelter in really bad bug country where one can eat and dress relatively bug free. Something to consider depending on the local bug conditions.
    YMMV

    HYOH

    Free advice worth what you paid for it. ;-)
