    Nice stand for a first hang! : )
    If you are going to get a storm tonight, you might want to hang a bit higher into the tarp? Enjoy and Good Luck.
    Let us hear how it went.

    Awesome set up. My first hang it poured too. Watch out for splash back.

    Great set up! Very nice tarp!

    Let us know how it goes, okay?

    But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed. (Luke 5:16 NIV)

    He said to them, “But now let the one who has a moneybag take it, and likewise a knapsack. And let the one who has no sword sell his cloak and buy one." (Luke 22:36 ESV)

    While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. (1 Thessalonians 5:3 ESV)

    Just started raining. Pulled the ends of the tarp to the ground as cover from blowing rain. Dont think its bad enough that ill need my bivy and its only gonna be like 50 tonight so not too cold. Eating dinner now and then back into the hammock! Not as fun as the woods would be but work is priority so maybe next weekend ill get up into the pines and give it a real test. Thanks for all the encouragement guys.
