    Used my HG 11' Hammock Tarp to go to the ground. Worked out well, but felt the 40 x96 inch Polycro groundsheet wasn't wide enough.

    I have a kelty noah tarp, but have never used it as primary backpacking shelter...only as a porch when car camping with scouts, and once for security over an old tent as a second fly. HEavy I suppose for a lightweight shelter type tarp. I am intrigued though by the idea of tarp camping..... too many bugs and snakes here in FL for me though.

    I've really enjoyed watching evan's backpacking videos on youtube. He tarps with a bivy under it, usually shows his set-ups each day.

    Ive set up my full tarp on the ground a couple of times just to get a feel for it, and itís really no different than sleeping in a shelter half. Iíve been eyeing some of the pyramid tarp tents like those from MLD.
