Re: [Hammock Camping] Re: ReplacingHHTarp
- Marsanne, when I did a week up at Sipsey, I used an 8 X 10 tarp just as you described. I went through several stormy nights and a few windy days. It's great to have a place to get in out of the rain without having to lay down. It also gave me a place to put all my gear. I brought a small piece of tyvek to lay everything on.Kim
To the ridgeline. The HH has these neat little glove hooks. However, I want the option of running a separate ridgeline above the HH, in warmer weather, and putting the tarp there so I can spread it out and have a BIG, high awning. This would seem to be especially neato in a rain storm. In Eds book, there are some great examples of how to use a B I G tarp to many advantages. Dave Womble also told me how cool it is to be able to do that.
- Oh, gotcha. That makes way more sense, thanks for clearing that up.
