    Exactly what I was thinking! It looks like I could pretty easily add grommets to the side tie outs as well as sew a loop to the ridge line... But where does one order poles from?

    Thanks for the comments. I really like how this turned out.
    To answer a couple questions:
    1) The tarp is 13' along the bottom with an 11' ridgeline and is 10' wide.
    2) The cost was ~$250. (It was lumped in with some other one off gear like the Super Socks, so I'm not sure what the exact total was.)
    3) I have had two hammocks under it and there is still room on either side. If I opened it up I could get three but I don't think this will ever happen. Having two side by side was the goal.

    Thanks Mike... If I trusted Mylar a little more I would have done that. We did discuss the fabric but I opted not to use cuben. I'm gentle with my gear but the environment isn't always looking out for my gear in the same way.
