@N8RLVR Depends where you plan to go. Tents are more flexible particularly in the Western US where camping above the tree line or in desert areas is not uncommon (ie no trees for hammocks) Hammocks work best in thicker forest where maybe there is less flat ground to pitch a tent. The Eastern US has more of that type of terrain. Another aspect is that hammocks are generally heavier, more complicated and require more skill to setup properly and safely.
I am in the west and so far I have only used tents.
