    Thanks pal ... yeah that'd would be pretty cool ... man it was hard enough to get that shot back then. Point a camera at him and he'd turn away! Actually tricked him with a spoon full of peanut butter!

    I enjoyed the conversation with you Hawk-eye, even if it was a bit one sided

    Seriously, very informative. I use skins but roll my tarp from the long edge instead of the side edges like you do. Your method is a LOT better.

    I have a 12' tarp also and love it. I recently cut the middle 12' out of my continuous ridgeline to save a few more grams (literally) and found that it's also easier to set up. I have a Dutch hook on each end of the ridgeline and simply wrap it around the tree and hook it into itself. Then slide the prusics to adjust the position if the tarp.

    Cuben skins with cuben tarp; why not?!

    Thanks for the video!
