I finished my xenon sil 5300 dark olive (thanks Dutch for the great supplies) tarp a week or so ago and finally got out on some trails in a local state park to pitch it. It has a 12' ridgeline and about 4.5' on each side. I put 2 additional guy out points on each side about 30" in from the corners to pitch in hex shape and close off the ends a little if necessary in wind and rain. I have one side pitched from the corner to the ground and the other side in hex shape porch mode using my trekking poles. I am very satisfied with the first test pitch and am looking forward to using in on a 4-day trip in 2 weeks.
