hello all. Just a quick question about pitching a tarp. Usually i use the HH tarp and attach it to the clips on the hammock lines. I haven't had too much trouble with sag but haven't encountered too many severe storms.

If i were to choose to attach the tarp separately (i have a JRB 8'x8') to the trees, what would be the best way to go about this. I just got the JRB tensioning lines. Should they go on the ridgeline or on the side guyouts? also, what are most of you using for a ridgeline for a separate tarp?

last but not least, what is the recommended method of attaching the tarp to the tree? i have read tautline hitch quite a few times but wanted to gather some opinions.

any other information along these lines would be extremely appreciated. thanks!
