Never thought about that, Warbonetguy. Makes sense to me!
Clwilla, I think you will find setup to be more difficult when you add the tarp into the mix. The tough part is usually getting the hammock properly centered under the tarp. When practicing your setup, pitch the tarp first. Then, setup and teardown the hammmock fully to get the experience of centering under the tarp.
Thanks for the info!
