    I do it this way for simplicity and speed of setup/teardown. Yes, the tarp is not taut when attached to the ridgeline, but it doesn't bother me.

    What are you using for an "undercover"? Quilt? If so does it fit along with the hammock in the snakeskin or did you make larger skins?

    #5 Snakeskins on tarp, and snakeskins on hammock, both stored/hung seperately. I've found that being able to skin/unskin the tarp lets me keep everything else dry, and just hang the tarp but not unroll it if the weather is nice. Keeping the hammock in the skins further keeps it dry...and if the weather is ugly and I'm not travelling I can skin the hammock up under the tarp for plenty of room to cook/relax either by myself or with others.

    +1 also on this, like to keep the tarp and hammock seperate.

    Thanks for all the input. I am thinking of SS on tarp and a bishop bag made from the HH bag. I might all make a bishop bag large enough to allow me to stuff HH and Next UQ in it. That should keep my wet stuff from my dry stuff.

    Thanks again.

    He uses a HH Super Shelter, which has a sil-nylon UC, like this:

    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.
    Romans 8:18,21-22
