In this video I do a couple of things… First of all, I get rid of the heavy carabiners on my ENO DoubleNest hammock and show you how to hang the hammock without them. I then go through and spend the rest of the video giving you an overview of how I like to setup my Kelty Noah 12 tarp for camping. I absolutelylove this tarp as it is lightweight, affordable, and takes up very little pack space.
Again, the tarp I use when camping / hiking / backpacking is the Kelty Noah’s Tarp 12. This is a 12 foot by 12 foot silnylon tarp. My preferred configuration is in a pseudo-square setup as it allows you to tie the ends together to enhance privacy in the woods (not that you need it all the time :). The only thing that would have made this tarp better (strictly in my opinion) would be if they offered it in a camo pattern.
For more info on the tarp, here’s what the manufacturer has to say about it:
“The Noah’s Tarp is instant shade. This ultralight, affordable shelter is handy to have aboard when you want weather protection in a hurry, whether you are traveling over land or water. Handy for boating, camping, backpacking, sporting events, and festivals.”
