Went on an overnighter on Sunday, 12/27, to try out my new Wilderness Logics Tadpole tarp. Forecast called for rain, so we thought, why not! Went to Blood Mountain, hiked over to the AT, then went via Neels Gap on the AT over to Wolf Laurel Top to camp. Long story short, we spent the entire night in 30+ mph winds and torrential rain. There were times I thought it was surely going to destroy my new tarp! However, I spent the night, riding the roller coaster as the wind rocked the trees, dry as could be! The tarp held beautifully. Kept me dry. Come morning, still in high winds and blowing mist, I easily slid my snakeskins over the tarp and stowed it in my pack. Could not be more please with this tarp! What a way to break it in!
