Most folks roll the hammock only (or hammock and underquilt), then store the tarp separately. I put mine in an outer pack pocket so I can set up my tarp separately when it's raining and never have to expose my pack to the rain. Then I'm nice and dry while I set up the hammock from under the tarp.
Then in the morning, I take down my hammock and pack up everything from under my tarp. Last thing I do is take down the tarp and stuff it away, then start hiking.
Plus, storing the tarp separately means you don't store your wet tarp with your dry hammock in the snakeskins.
“Republics are created by the virtue, public spirit, and intelligence of the citizens. They fall when the wise are banished from the public councils because they dare to be honest, and the profligate are rewarded because they flatter the people, in order to betray them.” ~Judge Joseph Story
