    Oh man, thank you HF for serving as my memory. I didn't finish this last year, so I totally forgot what I was doing here. I'm looking forward to fixing the other two poles and getting out this winter.

    I just had this out for 3 nights car camping in the cold and wind. I was going to use the Superfly but I'm glad I chose this instead last minute.

    After tweaking the pole lengths, I've come to the conclusion that they simply won't fit flush with the tarp when the doors can be snapped closed; there's just too much of a sharp bend at the top of the arch (almost pointed). If I relax the tieouts a bit the poles and nice and flush with the tarp, but the doors are about 6" too far away to snap. I can almost stretch it, but don't want to put that much pressure on the snaps.

    Still not a complaint, but something I need to be aware of when setting up (do I want the poles perfect, or ability to snap doors shut). In reality, snapping them shut only on one side this trip still held a lot of condensation/frost all over the inside. So I think I will always plan on keeping them loose and with an open gap.

    I love this heavy material. It's not a sponge like my other tarps.
