Being a taller person (6'3") I needed a diy hammock tarp that, 1) would set up quickly and easily especially in all seasons, 2) is at least 11' long when completely extended on the ridgeline so hammock ends are completely covered, 3) I can walk/stand under relatively easily, 4) I can stack 2 hammocks (possibly 3) under, 5) has decent side room, 6) can become a lean-to style tarp with considerable room underneath, 7) has a ridgeline organizer. So... I built Tim's Tarp.
This is an excellent Method to Manage Hammock Tarp Doors. It's fast and simple to use. It keeps the tarp doors neatly and securely out of the way in dry weather or when you are getting in and out of the hammock. But it quickly secures the tarp doors if needed—like when a rain storm quickly moves
