I recently ran across some camping hammocks on line. Decided to give it a try. I bought a Byer Moskito from REI and used a cheap blue poly tarp for rain protection. http://www.rei.com/product/736088 Used it this past weekend on a scout camp out. It was very comfortable to sleep in and no sore back in the morning. Wished I had one on our 3 day backpacking trip on the AT last month.
