    Ways to pitch tarps

    I ran across this over a backpacking light and thought some here might benefit from it, I know I have.

    I have been dabbling in diy tarps and this changes my perspective on how I can create more modular systems for different needs.

    Enjoy!

    I tried it on a couple computers here and it seems to work. Is anyone else having a problem opening it?

    It opened fine for me.

    Quite a few interesting setups - not sure how practical some would be, but interesting nonetheless.

    I can get to it but the text is in Chinese. I changed the url and got to the home page but can't find my way to the section about tarps.

    I use Google Chrome and there is a translate function button in the top left corner that I have auto translate web pages in languages other than English. Haven't tried to open with any other browser.

    I used Google and changed the language to English.

    I like the concepts of multiple tarps. Doesn't limit you to 1 or 2 configurations.

    You'll accomplish more if you start now.

    Opened fine here. Could you translate the type for me? Some of those looked interesting.
    It'll be alright Friday!
