I don't have snakeskins, but here is what I think: If you, unlike me, are
able to tie a clove hitch without going crazy (I just need practice), then
why use the snakeskins? I mean, you throw this tarp up first, using clove
hitch to wrap the lines around the tree, above the HH, then you get
underneath it and hang the HH. You and the HH are dry, protected by the
tarp. I am going to work on my clove hitch.

That tarp looks great; I really should have pulled the trigger and sprung
for one. ONe question: is the tarp compatible with HH snakeskins?
