    One mistake I think a lot of people make with the HH is going for the Expedition instead of the Expl Deluxe. I think it's just too small for most people.

    I've used it down to about 2C on a regular basis with a windshield reflector. I find I need to leave the foam out between trips now or it won't loft up during a trip.

    Look at the Kelty Noah tarps. 12x12 or 16x16. We've had two under the 16x16 and there was a ton of coverage, as well as room to spare.

    I've been using that combo for two years. Has worked quite well. I'll be upgrading to an UQ in a month when it arrives.
