    HH Expedition Tarp Conversion

    I just ordered a tarp to replace the stock HH tarp that came with my Expedition. It just feels wrong to not find a use for it.

    I'm thinking that it would make for a good undercover. I mounted it upside down underneath the hammock, but it looks to me like it would require a lot of sewing skill to get it even close to right. Skills that I don't really have.

    Any ideas would be welcome.

    Now add a Thermadrape quilt between the converted HH fly undercover and the hammock... a good ultralite rig, for sure!

    I was reading that thread last night. It sounds to me like that has some potential.

    Are you being serious?

    How?

    You got a picture?

    I just don't see how that's possible.

    Oh I see what you mean...

    At first I thought that you were saying that you could take a stock tarp and make it a hex tarp.

    That's not what you meant.

    Me. Slow.
