Camping trip coming faster than I can gear up!!!
My wife and I have have three children ages 4,7,& 9. We are going on the annual church camping trip the first weekend of August. So far my oldest 2 have Equip hammocks, but no tarps. My wife and I have DIY hammocks complete with ridgelines and whoopie-slings. I have one DIY tarp made from a harbor freight tarp, which I finished last night just in time to hang it before the rain came to test it. :) I'm not worried about TQs or UQs, because New Mexico is pretty warm at night, so a sleeping bag will be all that's needed for cover.
My dilemma is I currently don't have the cash to purchase true hammock tarps, but the DIY harbor freight version takes me some time to manufacture. Between the camping trip, we've got a birthday and a trip to San Diego for a conference that take up 3 weekends.
I guess the obvious solution is to put the kids in a........tent:(, and I make just one more tarp. What I'm looking for is a way for the kids to enjoy their new hammocks.
