    Looks awesome Morelia! Also looks like a sweet spots for snakes. Lots of spots to sunbathe, tall grasses, etc. Definitely worth braving a few slitheries for that kind of spot. :)

    It has a loop at either end and one in the middle if you wanted to run a tighter ridgeline. It will sag a little without it but not much (about the same as my other tarps do).
