    Steeler Nation, Enjoyed your video about your tarp setup. Is that a WB Superfly tarp?

    Thanks! Actually, it is a Z-Packs tarp that I had made to roughly approximate my Superfly with doors. It gives me about the same coverage for a lot less weight.

    +1 with Aaron. I don't like putting my pole grips in the grit and grime. Sinking the tips into the soil and wrapping the line around the handle works great.

    I don't generally carry hiking poles, so I usually wind up using whatever is at hand.

    You can sort of see how I wrapped my guyline around the end of a handy fallen widowmaker here:




    I've also used my bike's seat post as a porch mode point:

    All of the above...

    I wrap around the grips as well. Push the poles into the ground.

    I make my guy lines from 12 ft each of Speer no tangle line. The extra length allows me to wrap around trees often. I did this throughout BWCA. Use sticks as well. Worth the weight of long lines.

    Porch mode rocks.

    One thing to consider is if you have hiking poles with cork handles and there are mice around you might not want to set it up with the cork handles on the ground! I have had mice chew into my handles before as they are drawn to the salt and oils that are left behind from use!

    Mind you this only happened once to me and I was hanging right next to a shelter that had "LOTS" of mice! But it has happened to others that I know of as well!

    JMO, HYOH and use your gear the way you want!
