    Tarp for Two has arrived.

    So after ordering some of the Xenon Wide Tarp packages and attempting to modify KitsapCowboys Xenon Wide Winter Tarp and failing, I went straight to Dutch. He told me that maybe I should wait because he was in the middle of improving Xenon Wide. I waited. I waited 8 weeks...I was so glad I did! The improvements were spectacular!

    Then I threw together a poor description of what I wanted and had to go back and forth with Carolyn (whom is amazing and was so patient with me.) to get my idea passed along. I think I even left out some of the concepts I tried on my failed DIY but not to worry...Dutch saves the day again. He says he has been thinking of a similar tarp and asked me to trust him. I did without thinking twice. He created a prototype, tested it, improved the design, and went to work on my tarp. Now tell me that is not service to the nth degree!

    A couple weeks later I get an email saying that I had additional charges for the poles that I had not originally paid for. But, get this... he gave me a discount on them! Címon! Does he know no bounds to what he will do for a customer?

    2 days later, I have this https://photos.app.goo.gl/qQsXMLebpWdrtN8T8

    I can use my Big Guy Bridge from Just Bill in there, hang my two chameleons with Double bugnet, enjoy luxury space for a single chameleon, or open it all the way up for me and neighbor to hang and chat. Itís everything I wanted and I didnít even have to explain it that well. Thank you Dutch!!

    Looks great. I'm sure you will love it. I hope this means the retail one from Dutch is coming soon. I have been wanting to set up the double Chameleon with my wife. Kitsapcowboy had agreed to make me one similar to that last summer. He sent me an email telling me it was almost done, but then he went off the radar and I never heard from him again and never got the tarp. (or my money back, but that is a different thread). Enjoy!!
    Homer: Sir, I need to know where I can get some business hammocks.

    Hank Scorpio: Hammocks? My goodness, what an idea. Why didn't I think of that? Hammocks!

    Looks perfect for extending the shelter at the I&M Canal. Your "friends" will love you and the raccoons will encircle you with flashing eyes of envy.

    Oooo, nice. Will it have Kam snaps that will fully enclose the tarp for a full winter setup (and keep most of the rain/bugs out)?

    I was hoping it would fully enclose but the open end does not close like a typical end tarp when the pole is removed . If I had to do it again I’d probably try to get something figured out there.

    BananaHammock - Can you bring this with you to DaShack hang so we can all see it? This is close to my idea for my Skylight Stained Glass tarp.
