    I got my mesh snake skins from OTG. They are nicely made.

    Separate tarp line allows you to store your tarp outside of your main pack and set it up first in the rain for shelter without exsposing your internal pack contents to the elements. Again Shug & Professor Hammock videos should answer most of your questions. Happy Hanging and I will be watching for your Trail Journal entires next year. It is always great to follow a hammick hanger on the AT
    Thanks, bluejeans!

    I am thinking snake skins for my DIY tarp are next on my list. Folding it up nice and neat is okay but rolling it up, stuffing it in a sock and dropping it in my bag is a much better idea!

    I like what you have so far. Lots of good advice given here.

    As a simple alternative to snakeskins, I use velcro cable ties HERE'S AN EXAMPLE that are simply wrapped anchored to my tarp continuous ridge line and then wrapped around the tarp after I roll it up. It's not quite as compact as snakeskins but it's super simple, super light and an easily replaceable solution.

    For my OES MacCat Deluxe, I use three ties.

    1. I have gone at it with a hose and no drip line with my OES tarp and my hammock remain totally dry. That was just one time though but it was a hose and I had the flow of water right on the strap.
