MLD TrailStar shelter as a tarp?

Here we go
This is one option, other one would be not to tie TrailStar to the tree at all from corner tie outs and slip the hammock suspension under tarp at the half point between corners. That would give better cover I think.
The main idea is to have good head room at the center of the tarp where one stays in winter time and bad weather. For example putting on your jacket on is very easy under TrailStar.
And remember this is not a true test yet but a proof of concept.
Taunt tent line hitch with "instant open" loop to get a tight suspension of the tarp.
And of course Prussik knot for adjustment of the center point.
HAPPY HANGINGS AND MERRY CHRISTMAS!
