RE: [Hammock Camping] Re: ReplacingHH Tarp **Custom tarp orders**
Brian, you’re going to make mine wider than that, right? Folks, the reason I want it wider is I want a place to hang out for awhile, cook, sit in a chair, jump up and down, scratch, belch, peek out at the rain, play with gear, <G> etc, in case I get stranded in one of these rain storms like we’re in right now, for a couple of days.
I talked to Brian on the phone Saturday. Nice young man, sounds like he knows what he is doing. I predict he will soon be covered up with orders. To think, he is only two years older than my little adorable brat nephew who drives me crazy..
The width is whatever you want it to be, but most people have asked for
42", which is a good tradeoff between weight, hammock protection, and
space underneath the hammock. With a 42" fly, there is some space
underneath, but not enough to have someone sleep underneath.
- Oh, gotcha. That makes way more sense, thanks for clearing that up.
