Hey guys, I'm relatively new here, and have posted a little bit already and just wanted to comment that this is the nicest forum on the internet

Question about coverage tho-- I'm doing a Long Trail Thru Hike in July, and an AT thru in 2013, planning to hang the whole way.

I've hiked new england a long time, and know that wind/rain can be brutal, so my question is, how big should by tarp be, especially for a heavier storm? I'm thinking a MacCat Hex tarp (diamonds don't look like they cover that well to me). Will 125"84" be large enough? or should I bump up to 130"104"?

Also is it worth it to get something with doors (like the Warbonnets). The MacCat looks to be a bit lighter
