    Talking Shangri La Tarp

    Stoked, I just ordered the Shangri La tarp as my lightweight tarp. The 15% discount made it too good a deal to pass up.

    I should have added that stuff, "stealth green" i am having the line loks added as well and ordered 32 feet of reflective line so that the cub scouts, their parents, and me can see the line before we trip on it.

    And, just like Mr. Gibson (Paul not Mel) stated in an email to me, the tarp was shipped today! Should have it by next week sometime.

    Dang! I am thinking of getting the Shangra La and completely missed the 15% discount. If I had seen that I would have pulled the trigger already.

    Pictures! We want picture. Can't afford one myself but that doesn't stop me from living vicariously through you.

    Right now it is in a small stuff sack. I am not sure a pick of the stuff sack is that exciting.

    So here are some pics (they might be sideways, sorry for that, not sure why my camera did that) of the Shangri-la tarp during my first hang. I have JRB self-tensioning guy lines on it.

    Overall, it is a solid tarp, not too minimalist, will definitely use it again. I will be switching suspension system to dutch biners with 12' of dyneema - the suspension system I used seemed to complicated and I could have hung it faster (I think).

    I set up during a rain storm and it went up quickly, once i figured out the suspension system (which in truth did not take all that long). I then hung my hammock underneath it and nothing got wet, even when the wind picked up and started blowing rain and then mist about. I will note that I had the tarp reversed, but i fault my self for that, i have now hung an orange plastic carabiner from the head of the tarp so I know where it is next time.
