    I'll be the only hanger...the rest use the tents. I think it is someones "law" that if I bring the big one it won't rain, and if I don't, it will.......

    Tarp Shelters

    I consider this to be the optimal guide on using tarp as a shelter.

    If you can get away with 10 days and no rain in the Boundary Waters, you obviously have a pact with the devil!
    If not, immediatley buy a lotto ticket and donate a portion of your millions to HammockForums!

    I never sweated the portages...
    Like I told the scouts we took up there (28 portages in 5 days) " you will paddle till your arms fall off, then portage till your leggs fall off. Repeat this cycle for 5 days and love every minute of it." We did and they did!
    Portages give you a break from paddling still water.
