    And strong? I had my WBSF out "unmanned" when we had 30mph gusts. The small/light split-ring connecting the tarp-to-line-to-tree pulled open before the tarp ripped. In fact, I find my shock-cords on...

    Underfoot Pad Slippage

    I have a 5/8" x 12" x 16" ccf pad I cut for under my feet in a WBBB. It seems to pop out and all around at night. Any ideas to fix it down? Or should I cut a shaped pad segment for the foot pocket?
