    Yes sir. That should keep you dry.
    You may even end up having your hiking buds hanging out with you in the rain. That's always cool, because you get to sit in your own hammock while they sit on the ground
    Good job.
    don`t leave the CREATOR out of the creation!

    Nice work! I have a 12 x 10 and I can agree, that is alotta tarp.

    I personally like side pullouts.

    I have Grip Clips on my tarp with no stock pullouts. Very easy solution that does not involve sewing.
