Thank goodness Christmas is right around the corner, because I need a tarp! I have been doing some research, looking into different options, but with all the choices out there I'm finding that making a decision on a tarp is a bit overwhelming. I was hoping to ask you guys for some input and advice - what do you have experience with, what do you like to use as part of your setup and why, etc. I'm located in Georgia and for the foreseeable future all our backpacking will be done in the Southeast. I'm not looking for anything extreme in any direction - I don't need a super ultralight tarp, but I don't want anything that's jumbo-sized either, and as far as weather goes, I think I'm looking at anything fit for 3 seasons (any temps below freezing make me want to seriously consider hibernation 'til spring!) Also, not sure if choice in hammock affects tarp choice, but if it helps with the advice-giving I've settled on a Warbonnet Blackbird.
So what do you guys think? Thanks in advance for the opinions!
