I've been hiking for years with our 60lb Lab and want to move from my MSR Trekker tent (fly only) to a Hennessey Hyperlight A-Sym. I'm determined to be in a hammock by the start of next season. The only problem is that I want to keep my dog comfortable and out of the elements (we always share a Thermarest) I was thinking of a larger tarp and small pad to curl up on. I did get a few great ideas from Just Jeffs hammock page but I'd like to know what everyone else does. Thanks.
