    But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed. (Luke 5:16 NIV)

    He said to them, “But now let the one who has a moneybag take it, and likewise a knapsack. And let the one who has no sword sell his cloak and buy one." (Luke 22:36 ESV)

    While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. (1 Thessalonians 5:3 ESV)

    Disappointment.

    The tarps are 6'x8' diamond shape. Too short for use with a hammock I'm afraid. Now I am trying to see if I can salvage them by piecing together two, but haven't figured out the best way to cut them apart to reconfigure. Any one got any ideas? The material seems to be decent enough to make it worth it. I bought 5.

    Is it a symmetrical diamond? If so, you can probably cut one in half so that you have two short sides and then sew each piece to a separate whole tarp to make an asymmetrical diamond (a parallelogram) like the Hennessy tarps. It'll require some practice to use properly, buut...

    Anyway, it's a thought. I'd recommend doing a couple of scale models with scrap paper first, just to work out any kinks in the process before actually cutting (possibly usable) whole tarps.
