Those two black lines are the side tie out lines that are secured to
the stakes on either side of the hammock. You might want to add a
seperate ridge line for the tarp. This will give you a solid shed-
roof pitch even without the hammock.
Like lots of other people I also carry the HH tarp in a seperate sack
so I can put it up in the rain, and to store it away from everything
else when wet.
