    I think I get it. Sounds like he is just folding it up. When I don't have skins, I just untie one end and roll the tarp up towards the other end. I may have to try Pan's method.

    RRev, my 2nd yr hammock camping, I had an HH + Super Shelter ( but not the pad ) in one set of skins and the tarp in a separate skins. I would take my pad and TQ out and put in a sep dry sack, then skin the tarp in one set of skins plus the hammock/ +SS UC in another. It worked great, very fast!

    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    A bishop bag is super easy to make.

    Buy a stuff sack. Sew a button hole into the bottom, and then split the fabric with a seam ripper.

    Of course my machine has a button hole mode which makes it even more super easy.

    Burn the hole. Self sealing. No sewing. No fuss minimal muss.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    My method is similar to Pan's.

    I also do the lines the same way. But before I untie an end from the tree, I shake as much wetness off as I can, then I flip the tarp over so it is wet-side to wet- side )unless it si currently raining). Then, similar to pan, I untie one side. But instead of bringing it to the other end, I fold it back and forth at about 1 foot intervals. When I get to the other tree, I pull the slippery tautline hitch and then roll down from the ridge to the loose end. This allows residual moisture to be squeezed out. As I get close to the end, I tuck the the lines in, and use the tree lines to tie up the bundle. This gets put into the bag and an outside pocket on my pack. Probably a pain to understand when written out, but quite simple in practice. Allows for quick pack-up and deployment and no tangled lines.

    Pack Towels!!!! Do it before breakfast. Shake it down, wipe it down, ring out, and do it again. EAT! Roll it from each end and Skin it as you go. SpinTex drys faster than sil.

    One caution, if you cook under your tarp, it will smell like food. Not a good thing to be sleeping under anywhere bears are active. I don't know how many bears, if any, are in your area, but it is something to think about.

    On longer distance trips I am up and walking within 15 minutes. I stop to eat breakfast after a few miles and watch the sunrise. At some point in the day I may lay out the tarp to dry in the sun if possible (and necessary). Usually around lunch #2 when I take a nap. Spinn definitely dries fast though!
