If Iím ultimately going to need a larger tarp, the savings of ordering the ultralight is vastly diminished. That is, the cost of the UL + 2nd tarp would be closer to the cost of the hyperlight Ė standard tarp + larger tarp.
What would you suggest? Start with the standard UL, and see how it goes, or just go with the larger tarp and the HL?
i got a larger tarp, a 9-9 used. works better. wind off the river and mist is less. i stake both points to the ground.
