Sam, I don't use a tarp but do use a Seek Outside floorless tent.  We are always mindful of where we set up as not to have water running inside the tent but also take a small shovel or entrenching tool and will dig a shallow trench around the outside perimeter of the tent to channel water away and not get inside.

I also have a go-lite floorless tipi used it for many years , never had any issues with water getting under the tipi or tarps. I always look for a good spot to set-up and have never had any issues...

How do you keep rain from running under the tarp and soaking your stuff?


It just doesn't unless it blows way in and I haven't had that happen yet and been through some pretty good storms. But if it's windy you don't pitch any side real high! I use a floorless shelter most of the time and it never gets wet more than an inch or so into the shelter, ground just soaks it up!

One of the skills taught in scouting.  How to pick the right tent site.

I second Borah gear as well. 6oz bivy sack and a 10x10 tarp. Works really well for me.

Hammock guy here too. This past season a storm blew in from over the mountain suddenly, and close to dark.  The elk I had just called in got nervous and probably a sniff of my scent as the wind started going all over.  I was basically in a cliff of aspens, and the entire mountainside where I was is all steep, every “flat” spot was wet.  I quickly hung my tarp and sheltered until the wind calmed, hung the hammock and crashed.  If I stepped out of my hammock on the upside my feet hit the ground, the downside I would fall a few feet...

Bivy is fun when you're not in places that there are critters that like to cuddle up with you, that's why I prefer a hammock.  Just put a sleep pad under you and its all good.
