    Ground Tarp?

    What do you use for a ground tarp? That's something I still need to look into.

    I just picked up one of these it will serve dual purpose, one side is reflective.

    I have not used it yet.

    for me, a piece of Tyvek under the hammock keeps the feet off the ground (like a welcome mat) and makes a clean spot for gear storage, organizing, unpacking, re-packing.

    Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.
    The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy,
    while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn."

    Ground Tarp?

    I had that Walmart tarp. Don't use the grommets, they broke the first time I used them.

    I use a piece of tyveck for my "welcome mat" I also added some Velcro to it so it can be a rain skirt if needed.
    Look to this day: For it is life, the very life of life. In its brief course lie all the verities and realities of your existence. The bliss of growth, the glory of action, the splendour of achievement are but experiences of time.

    For yesterday is but a dream and tomorrow is only a vision; And today well-lived, makes yesterday a dream of happiness and every tomorrow a vision of hope. Look well therefore to this day; Such is the salutation to the ever-new dawn!
