    Looks awesome!

    That's one tarp where putting the ridgeline under the tarp might actually help structurally, since from the video, the sag you're getting looks to mainly a function of the size and weight of the vast amount of material you got there. But it looks truly palatial, and would be awesome for those wanting not only a little more coverage, but some privacy as well. Might even be able to convince my wife to hang under a tarp like that.

    Thanks Bubba. Lots of thought went into the design, even made a prototype from polytarp and duct tape.

    Thanx Kayt, I think she's fashionable and functional.

    Yep, may have to try to put the RL under it once and see how that goes. I have to start on one for my wife now. She looks at me like I'm half crazy ( only half?) when I start these projects but when I'm done she usually wants one too.

    Thank you sswens, corners were a lot of extra work but they came out nice.

    I've thought about a stove, but I'd like a canvas shelter for a stove... maybe someday.

    Dale Gribble: I'm thinking, "new hammock." For me, laying and swaying in a hammock is like a steady morphine drip without the risk of renal failure.
