I am heading to the pemi loop in the whites next weekend and am debating which tarp to takes - diamond or swt. I expect lows of 35F so would like the extra coverage. If not for the warmth, I like the diamond much better - it is lighter, less stakes, less tie outs, quicker and I can see better.
I am wondering what other swt (or similar 8 tie-outs tarp) users might do with:
1) how stakes do you carry?
2) what tips/tricks you use to get by with less stakes (like using 4 and crossing the end lines to a stake on the opposite wall)?
3) any other relevant thoughts?
Thanks for the input!
