I look forward to your next project, after this nothing should seem too hard.
The project as a whole can seem very daunting, but if you look at each step individually, it's not so bad. My advice is to build it as time allows, don't rush, and if you are tired of sewing on tie-out reinforcements, take a day or two off. The excitement will build again, and you can go at it refreshed.
Like I said in the video, I have a pretty cool tarp mod coming, but I have to order some shock cord first. I'm hoping it works out like my prototype did....
