    I wish I could take the credit.
    Brian from OES made the tarp to my design. 12' RL x 14' (7ft sides)
    On the Nth Degree GrizzBeak and the duel pole steep wall pole mod I provided the concept,
    Tim (2Q) did the math and heavy labor. Donna (ZQ) worked her magic with needle and thread.

    Thanks OG, I did research old canvas winter tarp designs when designing this tarp.
    Can't wait to get out in the snowy woods and burn some sticks.

    One could become or stay... devotional with a place like this to hang.

    Is that a zipper or Velcro down the middle of the beak, or is it sewn? I really like this.

    Definitely a sweet home away from home. Matter of fact, may not want to go back home after staying in this.

    That's just... Wow.

    Will you put the stove jack in the beak?

    I was using 3 grip clips, lines and stakes to hold the vestibule out to prevent
    the wind from pushing the material in possibility touching the stove pipe.
    I think the pole mod hoop will give me better support in the wind and no frozen stakes.

    Trying to get a trip planned. Mtn forcasts this week 50 mph winds all week.

    No more than usual. It's just a fact of hanging in these temps. You will see frost on your tarp.

    Having a woodstove does a pretty good job of keep the frost off while I'm up tending the fire.
    In the morning I'm sure there will be the usual amount to deal with. One of the reasons for a 6.5' ridgeline.
    I'm 5'9" and can stand at the hammock without touch the tarp with my head.
    No bending over or snow storms on my quilts.

    It is sewn shut with 12" left open at the top for the whoopies and a little venting.
    I felt it was safer to close the end with the wood stove. Less chance of bumping it going in/out of the tarp.

    I will be install the stove jack this week.
    Hope to post more backyard pictures with stove and hammock in there.

    Need to do a couple backyard overnites to get comfortable with how everything is going to work.

    Thanks again everyone for your interest, support and suggestions.
