Thread: A tarp for two.

  1. #1

    A tarp for two.

    I finally picked up some hammocks, next up I need a tarp. I have the material but I'm looking for suggestions on the design. I'd like something that my son and I could also setup on the ground in winter and have pretty much enclosed. The wilderness logics old man winter looks like what I have in mind. I have the plans for bwdd winter tarp, but I'm wondering how wide it is once you close the doors, I'm having some trouble with the math on that.

    anyway looking for some ideas. My orginal plan was to make a 10x12, then I thought doors would be a good idea since most of our camping is in the winter.

    I'm going to keep searching for other threads, if you know of one please link it.

    Thanks.

    I like that honeymoon suite, I completely forgot about that.

    Hurtinfeet do you know what the footprint size is? We probably won't use it for hanging this year but I might try it on the ground. I like the idea of a wood stove too.

    I don't know the exact dimensions. Message smokehouse and he is guaranteed to respond.

    The stove will not work with two hammocks inside.

    + 1 on the Honeymoon Suite by Smokehouse. I've used it several times and have nothing but good to say about it.

    Another +1 on the Honeymoon Suite. Smokehouse does fantastic work. He'd probably tell you how to make it too, if you asked nicely.
