    Great job on the TR. Nice to know what your gear can do. What's next, -10* TR?

    Thanks for your kind words, everyone!

    I normally love being outside in the rain. It's kinda magical for me. I haven't been in too many extreme rain storms like this though. It was really great to find that (once the leak is sealed) I can trust my tarp!

    Even with the wind constantly changing direction, having the larger tarp was definitely a plus!

    Workin' on that one. After all, half the fun of hammocking is the process of being able to be prepared for just about anything. It's one of the many common hammock addiction symptoms.

    TL said it well. If everything goes well, there's not a lot to report. The best stories are about adversity being overcome!

    That honestly sounded like fun!! Aint having a largish tarp great at times like that? At times like that I think back to when I (Gasp) tented & how different my time would have been.

    Great report, thanks! I also like the flashlight loop idea!!

    Wow, one of the best reports ever!
    Apparently, signature that I used from 2006 no longer tolerated so now deleted.
