Re: [at-l] Nomad or Tarp

I've camped with this guy. His system seems to work, and I suspect that 
unless there is a terrible storm, he will stay as dry as anyone in a tent. 
I am not so sure how bug free his system is, as there is no real way to use 
a bug screen with the tarp and hammock set up. He may carry more weight 
with ropes and such, but overall the effect is good.
