    Sorry guys, I missed these postings.
    The tarp over my hammock was a DD 3x3. Perfect size Ithought but then realised that if I had the 3x4.5 I could have made a door one end too.

    I now have a 3x4.5.

    The big builders tarp was the groundsheet for My Kalahari 10 but came in usefull in the foul weather.

    As James said, I didn't get in my hammock at all. I fell and twisted my knee in the snow and was forced to consume a considerable amount of alcohol as an anaesthetic!

    I can't make this date now. My job was coming to an end at the end of Jan, then the end of Feb and now it's March 7th! Every penny is required for new gear.

    Christ, this thread is older than that Green Man we share woodland with Dave; and he's DEAD!

    Let me know what days your doing Dave. I can manage a few days over the moot time and I miss your musical Apnea.

    sounds like a plan, I drive so distance not a problem, I am also a shift worker, this is a problem, lets throw a few dates into the mix and see who is available and if you have any ideas on camp sites with permission where we could go that would be great
