I'm thinking about asking for a tarp for my birthday. But, I'm not certain what size I would like to get. I definitely lean toward a larger tarp, but mainly because I have this vision of using a tarp to surround my hammock like a tent with the option for doors if I need it. Ultimately, probably overkill since I probably won't be doing any camping in snow.
What do you guys use? What makes it work for you?
