    After reading over some of the other responses, I'm now wondering if the title of this thread shouldn't have been more like...

    Why take just a tent or just a hammock? Carry both! Seriously, I ran across a guy last year who did just that. He said he was thru-hiking, but it took him six weeks to get to Gatlinburg and then he spent six days there getting drunk and stoned. His pack weighed at least 60 lbs. I forget his name, but he was from Patterson, NJ and had a really ugly tattoo on his calf.
