    Just ordered a T'Bird #966

    Pretty excited now haha, was tossing up between the WBBB XLC, and went the Dream Hammock Thunderbird in the end comes with the weather shield, heaaaaaaaps of colour choices, and Randy is super quick answering questions. Now just gotta wait

    Whats a good tarp to throw over it? 10ft model....

    If you want a local tarp check out Evan at Terra Rosa Gear - he is away on a trip at the moment so depends when you need it.

    Also if you need any accessories for the tarp e.g. Dutchware or Zing-it etc I sell it in Australia.

    Cannot go wrong with a Warbonnet Superfly, for your first Tarp. Digital Camo is really nice.

    I wondered why my order was 967 , I was looking at the orders and it looked to slow down a bit ,figured it was a good time to order then you snuck one in minutes ahead of me!

    Unlucky! I was bouncing between the Warbonnet site and the Dream Hammock site, sent Randy a message that he replayed to about an hour later SOLD!! And here I was going to wait a few weeks before ordering.......now I'll have it in a few weeks

    Back to tarps, i've been peeking at the UGQ Hanger 10, Looks quite nice, are the pole kits worth the extra just to have them there? and does anyone know if you can use hiking poles instead of the said poles????

    i think the poles must flex a bit. so i don't think so.

    Well, just ordered another Thunderbird #972 for my dad, and 2 UGQ Hanger 10 Tarps...............now the wait begins hopefully it's worth it which I'm sure it will be.

    I ordered an 11' dream hammock, still in process, but I have a 11' Superfly tarp. The 11' hammock has a 110" ridgeline. That is about 11" overlap on each end. So I'd say your tarp size should be loosely based on hammock length. A 10' hammock with a 100" ridgeline would go great under a 10' tarp and have about 10" of overlap on each end.
