18385RE: [Hammock Camping] Leaving...
- Dec 2, 2007Here is one of the best "guides" on using a tarp for a shelter that I have
ever seen. http://www.equipped.org/tarp-shelters.htm
It's worth going through it several times and even downloading the
"tarp-shelters.pdf" to go over at leisure.

course, a regular tarp!
We have several sizes that we keep at "base camp" for various uses. The
second, of course, is a
large emergency blanket, which can be used as a rain fly or lean-to if
necessary. Third, we also
have ponchos that are lightweight, but have the extra "give" to use over
backpacks, and have
grommets in the corners, so they can be used as ground cover or overhead
cover, as needed.
I do appreciate all the ideas!
