    I have been using a old rain fly as a ground cloth but I finally ripped it.
    I am looking for some tyvek for a ground cloth.
    If you have some and want to get rid of it, please pm me...
    Thank you

    No PM since I have none to help you with, however, here's how I got the pieces I use...

    Went to a construction site where the crew had just finished wrapping the house and asked the person I could find that spoke english if they had any end pieces they weren't going to be able to use.

    An end piece that was only 4-8 feet long may not be worth them keeping up with but at 9' wide it worked great for me.

    Also look in the trash bin for the door and window cut outs. They will skin the whole building, then cut out the windows and doors---they are almost always usable lengths and widths.

    Arrowhead Equipment sells it by the running foot (3 ft wide).

    Antigravitygear also sells it by the foot (9ft wide).

    Hope it helps!

    I think there is a GFS welcome mat in the PIF forum.

    Take it easy,
