Can't say about the PCT specifically, but last spring I started using
a tarp. Weight savings is great but I think tarpping is an art.
My biggist problem was not rain coming down, but running along the
ground and yes I did pay attention to placement...especially the second
time<<<grin>>>. Also I'm one of those weird people that skeeters don't
bite but the June Bugs and Millipedes on the face was maxi yeech.
I though of buying one of those epco tropic screen mini tents that
cover the top half of your body. But when I added the weight and the
extra hassle of finding the right site with trees in the right spot,
plus the possibility of awaking in a puddle in my new down bag....
I'm shopping for a tent. YMMV Kahley
