So, if you hang with trees, you can tie up the tarp to two immoveable objects (trees) and then worry about the side tie outs.
however, I need to pitch my tarp with two hiking poles. I've got shock-cord tighteners on all but the center lines. It's pretty disastrous- refuses to stay up.
Any tips? If I can't sort this then I have to sleep on the ground in a tent.
