    Ground Tarp?

    What do you use for a ground tarp? That's something I still need to look into.

    I just picked up one of these it will serve dual purpose, one side is reflective.

    I have not used it yet.

    for me, a piece of Tyvek under the hammock keeps the feet off the ground (like a welcome mat) and makes a clean spot for gear storage, organizing, unpacking, re-packing.

    "Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.
    Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.
    The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy,
    while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn."

    Ground Tarp?

    I had that Walmart tarp. Don't use the grommets, they broke the first time I used them.

    I use a piece of tyveck for my "welcome mat" I also added some Velcro to it so it can be a rain skirt if needed.
