[pct-l] Tarps

Are you anticipating adverse weather, or is shade the issue.  Is weight 
a concern?  Will the kids have to carry the same tarp as you?  Do you 
want the best money can buy, and finally, will flying insects be an issue?

I have personally never used one before, only read about them.  My question is, which tarp is best for 1 person + gear and why?  Also, what type of groundsheet?
