What is a good lightweight ground tarp to get ?

I have a Maxpedition Falcon II and for my shelter I have a SOL Escape Thermal Bivvy and Therm-a-Rest NeoAir Xtherm sleeping pad.

I want to keep this as a lightweight bag with a shelter that can be setup for ground sleeping. I have another camping style bag for hammock camping in the woods. But this bag is more for a situation where I wont be in the woods and I dont have tree's around to hang a hammock.

If I were to sleep in a building with this setup I would not need a Tarp.

The thermal sleeping...

I have a large tarp for my hammock right now.

Its called a superfly and it has doors on both end openings. Its good for windy, rainy or cold conditions.

What I really need is a tarp I can use for my hammock in summer conditions, and can also use in this other pack as a ground setup.

So if the tarp can be setup in two ways that would be fantastic.

Usually when you setup a tarp for a hammock you always use a ridge-line because you are already between two trees.

But I want the tarp to also setup on the ground if I dont have the ability to...

How would /out/ recommend I go about doing this? I hate to potentially sound like the typical teenager who's "tired of it all" and "wants to escape," but I've found that travel and seeing new places makes me very happy like nothing else. If I don't start doing something soon, the slacker in me will just sit around inside...

That depends. Will Daddy let you keep suckling his dick forever, or will the money dry up? Because you might want to use that money to get a degree and a career going instead.

But by all means, go on a road trip. It won't cost you 40 grand.

We have some big ass alligators out west a little bit when you get into the swamps. But most places I see the gators, they just hang around waiting for you to catch some fish and give them a snack. I still don't like standing too close to the water's edge when an 8'+ gator decides to go under the murky water and you can't tell where he is.

I guess we also have sharks in the ocean, but whatever. I would be more worried about getting raped by jellyfish than the sharks. And then god knows what...

Go out to a spot during the day and just sit quietly for a few hours and listen to the woods, listen all the little sounds they make and get familiar with them. Since it daylight out the instinct part of your brain won't be quite so on edge.

Do this a couple times, then go back to that spot at night and do the same thing. You'll be more familiar with the standard background sounds of the woods so hopefully you'll be more comfortable and less on edge.

fuck mate they need more light. what species are they?
most can tolerate pretty moist conditions whilst young.

I'm going hiking in an area where open fires aren't permitted but I still want to enjoy that sort of cozy heat. Has anyone ever used one of these and do they do anything at all? I'm not worried about gas consumption because there's plenty of opportunity to pick up fresh canisters on an almost daily basis but I do need something that takes up minimal space.

I live in southern california near the beach, and I want to go /out/ more than once a month, but everything around me is developed. You can't hike more than a half mile before coming across some guy's house, and it always feels like I'm walking around in people's backyard. Please tell me there's some secret spot in southern California that I don't know about where I can be completely surrounded by trees and wild life.

Otherwise, I may become a fucking normie against my own will.

Fellow so cal bro here.

I know that feel OP, I used to go to places like Big Bear/Mt. Baldy to try and escape the city, but even those places are far from underdeveloped and the scenery is hardly worth the long canyon drive to get there.

The closest thing you're going to get to a secret secluded expanse in Southern-ish California is the Eastern Sierra. For me, I eventually reached a point where I caved and bought a cheap place in Mammoth. I drive up there almost every weekend now, and at this point the 330 mile drive hardly phases me. Unlike Big Bear, the...

Hello sc/out/s,
I recently moved to Illinois (Champaign-Urbana) and I'm trying to figure out if there are any really good places for dispersed or primitive camping.
I've hiked in the Forest Glen Preserve and Allerton park, but neither of those seem suited for it (and I think camping is illegal in Allerton).
I want to go to the Shawnee National Forest. Does anyone have any suggestions for which of its regions would be nicest for innawoods camping this time of year?
Does anyone have any suggestions for other great places in Illinois to camp and hike?...

Yeah, tell me about it.
My girlfriend is a grad student here, so here I am, trying to make the best of it by experiencing as much of the "local" wilderness as I can.
I actually liked Forest Glen. Allerton was cool for the weird sculptures and structures and for having "un-touched" bottom land. My girlfriend camped in Kickapoo with some friends and said it sucked (though they were on a reserved site and didn't actually get to experience nature much).
>>
>>677070
I never camped around there or anything while I was there. Only thing I know about living in IL for 23 years, outside of Chicago there is nothing unless you go all the way south towards Carbondale and Kentucky or NW in the state there is some cool stuff towards the Mississippi.

I've heard a lot of good things about Starved Rock, that might not be too far for a weekend trip.
