Overnight tarp shelter camping with Cadence Davey for the last weekend of February in 2017! Since I couldn't find my usual tarp (a rainfly from an A frame tent I've had since camping with my dad), we used my ENO (Eagle Nest Outfitters) hammock rainfly. It worked really well, albeit the particular design set-up used this time seems better for a single person system. We had lows that dipped into the upper 30s, with about 1-5 mph winds (10 mph gusts). We initially started with both trekking poles propping the ridgeline up, but the wind forced us to drop that end. The fix shielded us from the wind perfectly. Cadence wants to continue camping like this to get a handle on this style. We talked about not always finding trees, and needing to "adapt, improvise, and overcome!" He used his hammock as a pillow while I used my jacket stuffed into a sack for my pillow.
The total repertoire now includes: (1) tent, (2) hammock, (3) tarp.
Should I tackle that climb next? Hmm...maybe after a quick nap!
