      Thanks, Jeff! I have a Kelty Noah's Tarp we've been using as a kitchen
      fly for a couple of seasons. Haven't had a chance to set up the HH
      yet, but if the tarp looks small, I have an alternative. Still picking
      up ideas for insulation. I'm hoping to avoid another big investment.
      In the tent, I generally sleep warm in my Cat's Meow 20 degree bag, on
      a Thermarest pad, but I'm aware that heat loss is a bigger issue in a
      hammock, so I'm looking around for some closed cell foam. Will have to
      try out the HH before deciding what to add. I haven't told the Crones
      about my new hammock. Springing this on them should be fun.

      Fascinated by the whole concept of stealth camping, too.

      Okay, I'm 60, going on 10.

      Then you'll surely want a larger tarp than the one that comes

      standard with the HH. There are several option available...Speer has

      an 8'x10' and an 11'x10' Winter Tarp, JRB has an 11'x10', and MacCat

      has a few models you may be interested in.




      There are also cheaper ones since weight isn't as much of a factor

      for you...check on the Kelty Noah 9 or the Guide Gear 9'x9' and


      Any of these will give you room to lounge and cook, sit with your

      friends, etc. I usually hang my son next to me under the same tarp

      when the site is right.

      Welcome to the gang!
