    any who i ended up buying 13 yards of ripstop nylon from joann frabrics so im going to make the tarp out of that. fabric is hard to find near me and i dont have the patience to order it online
    It's not the fall im scared of, it's the sudden stop at the end!!!

    Reading the alibaba link a little further, it states a sample size of 100 meters could be purchased for an $80 surcharge on top of the $2-$3 per meter charge. I am sure a group buy could be organized for anyone interested. At typical 8 yards per tarp, it would only take a dozen or so people wanting to trying this material out.

    Cheers
