I really love it. I could use one of those.
The present moment is eternal. I would rather be Here, Now.
Hmmmm cant help but think that you should be able to put a hiking pole (assuming you have one) between the D rings and save on having to tie out those 2 extra points. Especially for those who would want to use this solo and wouldn't need more than 2 trees. Great design.

Bump for this awesome tarp idea!

Hey smokehouse, nice work! I made a similar tarp prototype years ago that was very similar, and after testing, I wanted to make one wider with 2 custom hammocks (so that both users would face inward) and then put the stove right in the middle (this is after I went out with Turk and realized the awesomeness of the heated shelter!) This way, once in the shelter you could theoretically sit in your hammock and cook! I never got the time to make it though
Glad yall like it. I modified it a little. instead of 3' wide at end its now 4'. I also replaced the flat end with a vestibule.
I did think about putting a stove in this one, but it just to big and to much air flow. here are new pic's of it... https://picasaweb.google.com/1041111...oneymoonSuite#
I do have one called a smokehouse with a small TI stove in it. like Turks. have not seen him on here in awhile...
As an update to previous posts, my date Cindy and I have loved the Honeymoon Suite since our first night out in it. As of now we have deployed it in Arkansas, Oklahoma, and several places in Texas for well over 20 nights by my calculations. We've set it up porch style on both sides and enjoyed lot's of air flow while still having a bit of privacy in the vestibule. We've ridden out some pretty scary storms without a drop dripping or blowing in, and we've been nice and warm on some cold nights with the sides staked low and the doors battened down.
I can't say enough good about it.
If anyone catches Smokehouse in a weak moment where he talks about building one for someone, jump on it. You won't be disappointed.
Your too kind UMJM being the gentleman and scalar u are.
I saw some pics of your heated shelter, and it was inspiring to say the least. That one was totally awesome.
