      I'm not sure I agree that you can't beat a tarp, tent, etc in that situation. I have two Nomads and I LOVED my tents! I told Ed there was no way I was giving up my 2-4-2 or Lite-n-Airy, they were my favorite homes. I slept like a baby with the right thermarest.

      But..he convinced me to try it and now, 2 hammocks later, my tents are sitting in the closet gathering dust. I don't forsee anytime in the near future I will have a need for them. And with the hammock and the tarp, I have more versitility than either a tent or the tarp gives me alone. I just don't see that the hammock is an alternative "if" sleeping on the ground is uncomfortable. Heck, it's an alternative even if sleeping on the ground IS comfortable.
