    Yeah I don't understand why people do what they do. Here's a collage of pics I took years ago at a place I won't even mention due to gross overuse already (USFS is part to blame). These were taken...

    I love that gray. Looks like my Charcoal Gray Winter Haven tarp.

    A little more "bluish" but could be the light.

    Not sure if this would help the tension issue, but I was sewing some last night and decided to use the reinforced straight stitch. Three lines end to end spaced about 1/4" and it's solid. It's easy...

    The tree does save some line. I don't carry much. But if the tree is a big diameter, then you screwed yourself.

    Here's a typical setup for me, about 14-15' spacing. Maybe I'll start taking eye...

    Even at a 15' distance, that doesn't leave me with enough room to get a stake. The trunk/roots won't allow. Staking to the side gives it a dirty sloppy setup. So I just wrap around the tree.

    Yeah I was camping the Gaylord area a few days ago, about 5". Enough to feel like winter and pull the toboggan so that was nice. Need to get that lake effect machine going!

    After dealing with these quite a bit on my hot tent, I would not be afraid to make my own for a tarp as long as I knew how long they should be. Very easy to cut and make yourself.
