    Apartment livin'

    I'm making the best of not having a yard to test my gear out. I actually made the ridge line of my tarp the same width as my apartment so I could hang it.

    Looks like fun! I've been itching to put some eye hooks in the walls and hang in my apartment, but I'm not allowed to make any holes bigger than a picture hanging nail. Bah.
