    Tarp Ridgeline Options...

    Here is a slideshow of the options I have for the Tarp Ridegline. The Figure 9 option is still available and I havent updated my website. But the single TRL without the Figure 9 is the result of brainstorming of the members here.

    opie - I'm really liking your thinking on toggles and the slide show is a great way to demonstrate things. In some ways it's more helpful than a youtube video.

    Opie,

    The slide show is a clear way to show details.
    Good addition to the video instructions.

    Thanks again for the whoOpieSlings and tarp ridgeline and video lessons.

    Thanks Shug. I milled every piece of wood in that playhouse. Unfortunately the kids never had much interest in it, but it keeps the sun off them while they play on the sand box underneath it.

    Great slideshow Opie. I like the fact you are always trying to improve on an already great product. The toggles are making life easier for us with their quick set up time and light weight. Thanks for putting that together to show us the latest and greatest.
