Hi it's me again, I would like to thank every one who has posted on recent threads to answer my newb questions. I have noticed from reading other threads that when people ask questions "what would be the best...?" it really lights a powder keg of good info, and friendly disagrement. So here goes a fuse;
What would be the best tarp for summer camping? The perameters;
1. must be as light as possible (of course).
2. must be as durable as possible (of course).
3. (now the kicker) Because I've already spent too much already on stuff* It needs to be as cost effective as possible.
* I first bought a Skeeter Beater Pro. I liked it for sleeping in but it's hard to get out of and it has ripped twice. But it told me some stuff I needed to know like, I can comfortalby sleep in a hammock, I don't like chasing a thermarest around my hammock all night long and I need a stronger hammock. So I ordered a WBBB and a JRB UQ (hence, now I needed to count my pennies).
The tarp I need now would be for warm summer time trips were I could stand to get a little damp with no great concern so I'm willing to trade more coverage for less weight. I'm planning on buying a larger tarp later on for colder weather camping anyways. Would this be a good tarp for now? http://www.sportsmansguide.com/net/c....aspx?a=550935
