    What made you settle on a detached piece of fabric to close off the wide end? Is there really no other option?
    Were you thinking to integrate it...to the top or sides?

    To my novice eye, even integrated it seems like it would only be hanging by a rather thin attachment point anyway...no? Might make setup more of a chore with that hanging loose...

    Hmmmm cant help but think that you should be able to put a hiking pole (assuming you have one) between the D rings and save on having to tie out those 2 extra points. Especially for those who would want to use this solo and wouldn't need more than 2 trees. Great design.

    Hey smokehouse, nice work! I made a similar tarp prototype years ago that was very similar, and after testing, I wanted to make one wider with 2 custom hammocks (so that both users would face inward) and then put the stove right in the middle (this is after I went out with Turk and realized the awesomeness of the heated shelter!) This way, once in the shelter you could theoretically sit in your hammock and cook! I never got the time to make it though

    Glad yall like it. I modified it a little. instead of 3' wide at end its now 4'. I also replaced the flat end with a vestibule.
    I did think about putting a stove in this one, but it just to big and to much air flow. here are new pic's of it... https://picasaweb.google.com/1041111...oneymoonSuite#

    I do have one called a smokehouse with a small TI stove in it. like Turks. have not seen him on here in awhile...

    As an update to previous posts, my date Cindy and I have loved the Honeymoon Suite since our first night out in it. As of now we have deployed it in Arkansas, Oklahoma, and several places in Texas for well over 20 nights by my calculations. We've set it up porch style on both sides and enjoyed lot's of air flow while still having a bit of privacy in the vestibule. We've ridden out some pretty scary storms without a drop dripping or blowing in, and we've been nice and warm on some cold nights with the sides staked low and the doors battened down.

    I can't say enough good about it.

    If anyone catches Smokehouse in a weak moment where he talks about building one for someone, jump on it. You won't be disappointed.

    I saw some pics of your heated shelter, and it was inspiring to say the least. That one was totally awesome.

    well that seals it, never tenting again.
