    I use the 15' spider straps/beetle buckles. After getting things set, I just coil the excess up and slippery half-hitch it to the straps. Keeps the excess out of the way, and gives me a water break...

    'Nuff said right there. Sounds like a great trip! I think you did very well for your first trip. Although I'm sure it happens, I think it's a rarity when someone has a first trip with no issues.

    Nicely done, that's a great result! Be careful, the RSBTR kits are addictive. Also the Dutchware kits. A little more than half my gear is DIY either from a kit or something similar.

    That's what I was going to suggest as well. Just a little binder clip works wonders. and it's a multi-tasker (credit to Alton Brown).

    Another thing to try, hang the foot end hammock continuous loop directly onto the Tensa stand pole, and then hang your head end (hammock) on the Tensa pole using a short length of your suspension....

    That is a beautifully made tarp, and a MONSTER. It's perfect for motorcycle travel. You will be the envy of everyone with that setup.

    I put the tarp in porch mode and take a nap (or 2). If I get too bored, I put on my rain gear and take a walk. If I'm in a fishing area, I go fishing, the best fishing is usually in the rain.

    I use a 1 piece DIY noseeum sleeve on my 12' silpoly winter tarp. It works really well when trying to manage that big tarp, especially in some wind.

    I think you will probably find that once you get your tarp connected to the extenders, and guyed out to the ground, it will sort of self-stabilize.

    I think it looks fantastic! The 11' tarps fit on the stand just beautifully, and provide plenty of coverage.

    I can't believe this is the first time you have had it set up outdoors. Shame on you....

    I concur. If you look at my pictures a few posts up, I have my tarp ridgeline anchored, but it was only to keep it from getting in the way. The tarp extensions on the stand do all the work.
