I consider myself a capable DIYer, but I also understand that some things are better off purchased rather than assembled in the "lab".
If I have ~$75-$90 for gear, would you recommend I make or buy a tarp?
It rarely rains here in southern NM, but when the monsoon season decides to make itself known, we can get many inches in a short amount of time.
Currently, my plan is to backpack in 3 seasons rather than 4, so there's no need to prep for the onslot of a winter blizzard.
I just want a decent sized and weighted tarp. My hammock is a tablecloth jobber.
So what do you think? Make it or Buy it?
