I was wondering what else I would need to make this a full ground solo set up.

Bivy? - any recommendations?
Grand cloth?

$9 shipped but I found it for about half that at home depot last winter. I made 3 ground sheets for a TT double rainbow. I thought there is no way it would hold up but mine has about 350 miles on it tenting every night. no holes, also you can patch it with duck tape.

Depends on the season and weather. Picked up a used YAMA Mountain Gear Bug Shelter 1.0 recently, which will probably be used in spring. I'll also looking for a bivy to try out for shoulder seasons. At the moment I'm leaning towards a Katabatic Gear Bristlecone. +1 on the window insulation kit for a ground cloth. A lot tougher than painters plastic and a little lighter than Tyvek.
