    newbie wanting info..

    Good day to all HF members. I have always enjoyed camping and Love the Gods country of Minnesota. Shug's videos on youtube brought me here. (love your videos Shug. You are a new mentor to me. :0) ) I love the "snakeskins" for tarp control and need help in how to make them. I have a 12' x12' Kelty tarp and a 10' x 16' cooks custom tarp. Would be nice to show the snakeskins of to my old time camping friends on the next camping trip.
    I have been playing in my basement tieing tarps up in the tarp tent fashion. I'm looking forward to winter camping and snowshoeing next weekend.
    Thanks for all the great info and advice. Love you all. Hope to "hang" with some of you in the future.
    Hung in an ENO, mn-fireman.
