Shug's You Tube video from 25 June 2014 ("Tarp Chat and Tutorial PART 3")
shows snake skins used starting from the ends of the tarp, not from the ends of the ridgeline (that is, not at the trees).
But if you're wrapping the ridgeline closely around large trees and tying it with a knot or carabiner (not the loose V that Derek Hansen uses), it seems like the snake skins could extend from the trees, incorporating both the tarp and the ridgeline.
Am I missing something here, before I go out and find out the hard way?
Thanks in advance...
