    Just for clarity, it was literally flooding (and I'm from Texas so I've seen a couple floods) at the site and GSMNP makes you camp at designated sites soooo. If I was in my personal NP Shennadoah we would of kept walking.
    I'm starting to think: umbrella, pack liner, chaps, leather biker hat.
    Oh and this thread is much more fun if you insert the words Minnie-skirt instead of poncho and chaps.

    Diane, I guess I have a Parcho and didn't even know it! Years ago I bought a poncho put out by Western Trails from Bend Oregon…I don't think they're around any more. Anyway, it's 43" wide at the body, narrow enough so that gusting wind wasn't a problem, and 61" at the arms with several snaps down each side to adjust for ventilation. When unsnapped and unfolded it's 96" long, which made it perfect for ground cloth use and just ok for a tarp, as it was a bit narrow. Well, over the years the urathane delaminated, and I tried to resurect it by using a water based tent floor coating sold by REI, which ruined it, because it dries hard and boardy, not flexible. So I'm greatful to Roleigh for his cuben Parcho idea. I think I'll send off mine to be used as a pattern for one made of cuben or silnylon!

    I can almost fit my DriDucks Small over myself and my Jam2….almost.

    Granted, I'm somewhat on the small side (5'8", 150) but I think a xxxxxL or whatever is the largest they sell would definitely do the trick.
