    Newbie needs tarp reccomendation

    I am a total newbie and just bought a hammock. The hammock is a DreamHammock Crinkle 60. I want to get a single tarp which will be light, large enough for two hammocks and a dog, and good enough for most of the year in New Hampshire. It would be a bonus if it could be used as an on the ground shelter with a net tent or some type of bug netting. Oh, and I don't have much money, so the less expensive the better, if it still works well.

    I will be using the one I made from a painter's cloth for a while, saving for a new one, but thought I would go with one of the big boys. Here is what I am looking at, but would be happy to have any additional recommendations:

    GargoyleGear Mega Ogee 11
    Warbonnet Superfly
    JRB 11x10 Tarp


    Any advice appreciated.

    Thanks for the rec. Have you used this tarp at all? What do you like about it? I certainly like the price and the light color will let a great deal of light through.

    I have a MacCat Deluxe for most days and a Warbonnet Superfly for Cooold and rainy days. Both are great. The MacCat Deluxe will honestly do you just fine for the vast majority of what you will face. However, a week in the mountains on the CT/NY border during a particularly cold, windy and rainy spell made a believer out of me regarding my Superfly. That thing was awesome for keeping everything dry and warm. Glad I have both!
