Been researching a lot lately about tarps. I currently don't have one and am looking into making my own. Chatted with Shug via p.m. and really like his tarp setup. He linked me to this thread: http://www.hammockforums.net/index.php?page=blackcat
I love the design and look, but I'm not sure I get the whole cat cut setup. I know it's to create a tighter pitch but does it really need to be as complicated as it is in that linked thread? Could I simply measure 1 foot over and 1 inch up (Just an example) and then just go with it? Will this lead to annoying setup or will it work fine?
I'm really close to ordering the supplies needed for this tarp, it'll cost me around $65-$75 in supplies. The only part I'm hesitant about is just how complicated that linked thread seems to be. Am I overthinking it? Advice, tips?
