One thing I forgot to mention, and not sure if any one else has: if not soloing, your hiking partners can be a HUGE help. They can hold onto parts of the tarp while you try to get each guy line secured. Especially while pulling small sections of tarp out of snake skins.
And to repeat, if on an actual hike rather than taking what you can get in your backyard or at a developed campground, if the wind is knocking you down in one spot, most times you can move to another spot where a hill or thick trees or a huge rock are blocking most of that wind. That is another huge advantage we often do not have in our back yards, especially sense we don't need level, rock or root free ground. Just hunt for that sheltered spot. But, with bigger groups this can be tougher, trying to find enough good trees in a sheltered spot where all can hang together.
