@Ryley: Great answer and exactly what I expected someone with experience to say. By the way, I usually use bug netting around my head if I plan to go to sleep right away. If not, I will use a larger bug netting that surrounds the fringes of the tarp as you suggested.

@gerrit: If the weather is good, I do not use a tarp. However, if I am going to use a tarp, I start about an hour or so before I plan to stop hiking, looking for a good tarp place to setup. So most of the times I do not have trouble finding places to do this. I have had times where I had to quite resourceful in setting it up though.
