I'm looking for some type of reasonably priced, reasonably light ground cloth.
I've used GG's polycro--only to have it rip in the middle of the trip. I've used Tyvek--and had to pick off a million pine needles that seem irresistably attracted to the material. In short, I need something new. And I need to be able to source it in a variety of sizes. And for a reasonable price. And it needs to last for 1 week under a variety of conditions.
I'm taking a group with 1 Contrail, 2 Rainshadows, and 2 Squalls, as well as a 9.5 x 10 Bearpaw tarp. I need to get groundcloths under all of these for a reasonable price. We are hiking the West Coast Trail, so ground conditions will vary from sandy to forest floor.
Someone out there give me a great idea ! ! !
