      In high winds, it's important to put the low end into the sand, and into the
      wind. Then I bury the edge of the tarp in sand. I've taken sustained 45
      knot winds with this and similar setups.

        I also re-watched your snakeskins segment and although I love the way my Byer's folds into its own stuff sack (that is later an outside pocket when you are in the hammock), their use as rain drip protectors seems interesting.

        i believe someone said they either had or were going to make a pair. since i'm going to order some silnylon, i might as well try making some reptile skins. if anyone can PM me directions, dimensions, photos, I would appreciate it.
