    Sweet Warbonnet, I am doing the same thing! I am making the end triangles a full 5 feet wide at the bottom, is that what you did? Also, I am going to sew a zipper in the other side (the side not sewn to the tarp), any ideas why not to do it like that? I am also planning to use a fabric 'door' like schrochem was talking about, I think I like the open top better for ventilation now that I see yours tho.

    BTW I am modifying my GG tarp for this project.

    Now all you need to do is add a wood stove hole in the tarp!

    sorry about the delayed response, i had to work out of town again this week, fortunately, friday was the last day of my 2 week notice, i start a job close to home on monday.

    hog, i think my end panels are wider than that. 80" i think, look at the bottom of the origional post for the specs.

    scott, it's got an 11' ridgeline x 10' wide.

    cannibal, bet you're getting anxious by now, just hold on for another month.

    Terrific TarpTent!

    Hey Warbonnet that is a terrific looking piece of gear. Interesting use of flap attachments. Fun to see what others do in their spare time. I like it as it is neat.
    I just added flaps to mine and am really happy with the results in the wind and cold. I am sure your warmth will be boosted. Great job!!!!
    Here is a pic of mine.

    Get it out and string it up!

    cool, looks like your doors just overlap eachother for a full closure, is that about right?

    Naw, no zipper, just good ol' velcro. I use that to keep them closed at full pitch and when I have a tight pitch I use these hook and line attachments. They work pretty good so far.

    shug, your winter tarp is completely awesome. I am truly awestruck by your diy skills. And warbonnet, you are a god among mere mortals.

    I consider myself fortunate to learn from your experiences. There are posts from both of you gentlemen that are gems of wisdom. True pioneers of winter hammocking, and gear design. I am very inspired.
