Went basic and tride out this DD 3 x 3 tarp configuration. Only took my DD rain poncho as a ground sheet, thermal reflective pad, my light weight sleep mat and my DD Jura 2 sleeping bag. Was super toasty all night and that was late September and we had strong winds and rain. Not a problem. I found a bit of wood and rounded the end to hold up the tarp and the DD 3x3 tarp is super strong and still after many years of use and abuse its solid.
