I have one. Good tarp for car camping as is on the heavy side at 2 lbs.
The stuff bag that comes with it is a pain to use.
Good part is that is very low price and big and lots of tie outs
Pictue is of a Gear Guide tarp, A Mosquito Hammock Camo tarp and a Big Mamajamba tarp for comparison
I have one too. Put mine in snake skines with no-tagletie outs. Can be closed up cabin style.
I like big tarps.

I just got confirmation that mine shipped... $29 including shipping is hard to beat, even at 2lbs. I'm planning this one for car camping with my son... 2 hammocks under 2 Portable hammock stands.
Worst case if it's way too big, I'll cut it up into something smaller and more useful.
Aren't your seams factory taped?

I got the same tarp and its on the heavy side,but lots of room.Im looking into a lighter tarp.HS
So, seal if you want, or not. It's likely that leaving the seams on the Gear Guide tarp unsealed is perfectly okay.
You have to add center line tie outs at the midpoint of two opposite sides.
Hang a ridgeline from one of these new tie outs to the other.
Stake the sides down with guy lines (Do not stake the 4 corners)
Close the doors by staking the left corner at the head end to the right side of the tent. Then stake the right corner to the left side of the tent.
Repeat on foot end.
I posted these illuastrations under Chinook and thought I would post here too.
Like I said in the other thread, I am exposing my supreme geekiness, but I feel safe on this forum.
The Chinnook is about a foot longer and about a foot and a half narrower.
The Chinook has tieouts and grommets. It is good to go out of the box, but it would be good to add tie outs at the end of the ridgeline.
The Guide Gear reguires two tie outs be added to hang it with doors.
Both weigh about 30oz
