So I use a tent. I use a tent b/c it just seems like the best possible way to stay toasty warm and have lots of privacy, as I always change into my b-day suit before changing into sleep clothes. However, I have back problems. I tried to do a Thru and it ended with Physcial Therapy after reaching Bly Gap. So Instead of being your usual woman and sticking with my Cutesy comfortable tent...I am considering the Tarp thingy. Now my MAIN concern is being wet and cold. All I picture when I think of sleeping under a tarp in winter is cold rain soaking my bag somehow and splashing me while I try to sleep. And in summer I picture slithery and legged creatures coming in and checking things out...not my idea of GOOD COMPANY!
So if you would just gimme an idea of the "myths" and "truths"...Thanks in advance for all the feedback. I really appreciate you guys and gals for all your advice! You have helped a lot of people such as myself with the learning curve!
