tarp was covered this morning. no leaks , but I did learn a few things...
"Camping" in this weather is actually fun, and also that wet dogs seem to be attracted to UQ's... time to look at a protector. breathable or waterproof???
First I call the wet snow, "White Rain" it is beautiful, makes wonderful Christmas photographs, and soakes everything. I hate being out in it.
I find being outside, but under cover to be a beautiful experience. I love being in my hot tub, in the middle of a snow storm, something about the snow swirling over headd and me nice and warm...It is some kind or odd power trip for me.
Wet dogs love anything you do not want to smell like a wet dog. My two K9's go out of their way to make my gear smell like them, when they are wet.
I am still debating the Greathable vs waterproof. Not sure yet, probably one of each.
