Thought I'd post a bit of an update for both Weasel and I on this particular subject.
Last camping run was in the end of June. Rolled out Friday night, weather was hot and humid. Saturday morning looked bad. Got up about 7am, saw clouds rolling in and heard the thunder.
Weasel had already setup his BMJ, and I was under my HH Hex. Other sons were smart and just stayed in the tent...LOL!
We weren't moving that day, so we both just skinned up our hammocks, lowered and tightend up our tarps, and started breakfast from under our respective porches.
It came down. Not the worst storm I've seen, but the first real test of either tarp since we've started hanging.
Gotta say...both tarps were AWESOME!
It felt great sitting there under the tarp, pocket rocket stove heating up some coffee and oatmeal, listening to the rain and reading my book.
Weasel was EQUALLY as pleased with his setup as well.
Just thought I'd share a wonderful morning that sure could have been worse. =-)
