    +2 on the night owl. You get whoopies, tree straps, and adjustable stretch sides.

    Or you can DIY the same thing for less, but add the time in making it and you only save a little.

    Ideas for a winter tarp with doors.

    Not doing cat cuts this time. Just wondering if this idea would work good for
    making a big tarp with doors.

    Should the side tie-outs be 6' or 6 1/2' apart if the bottom is 12' long?
