    this shows the tie outs in action, but i'll try to get a shot of how the tie-out loops are reinforced.

    i'll make some slight changes in where i place them on the next tarp though. slightly lower & slightly farther apart.
    the idea came from the ray way tarp.

    I was about to say that Ray Jardine does that on his Beaked Tarp. I never ended up putting them on my Beaked Tarp, but I don't even use that tarp any more. However, I have it for when I finally get around to doing the PCT and CDT (but only for the portions where one cannot hammock).

    i used the ray way, beaked tarp for well over a year on my hammock. works well & the beaks can help w/ blowing rain.

    I am very curious about the new Speer Tarp.

    If I don't hear from Brian soon about the 2 MacCats I need (its been 2 weeks) then I'll prolly go with this new Spear Tarp.

    Has anyone actually seen it yet? or is Trail Days the big unveiling?

    I think TD is the unveiling for the Speer Cat Tarp. The cat tarp KIT won't be available for a couple of weeks, according to Ed.

    Yeah, I'm sure after this weekend we will know everything...

    Looking at Ed's web page it looks like the cat tarps are available now (non-kits). Though I could be mistaken.

    My sewing machine needs a tune up anyway, its over 30 years old, lol.

    You are the reason I want to add them. They really do give you a lot more room under the tarp. My Cloudburst2 has some round reinforcements with pull tabs that you use to tie the tent out. I would like to find something like that.

    I'm in no hurry for pics tim. whenever you get a chance. I have enough projects to keep me going.

    Like Tee Dee said there are two ties missing. I just assumed two ridge lines cause I read through it fast and the math didn't add up. I don't guess anyone has seen it. Wonder if it is like slowhikes 8 ties?

    slowhike's has a lot more than 8 tie out points. More like 16 or 18 counting the ridge line. he can tell you for sure
