    Tarp ridge line

    I have about 30' of 1/8 amsteel blue.
    1) What is the best way to "tie off" the ends. I have some mini 9s.
    2) What to get #4 snake skins to tuck the 12x12 tarp into.
    3) how to attach the tarp to the ridge line.(maybe ajust with mini S-hooks on prussics)
    tie outs I'll with use speer no-tangle.
    Tortoise never for a moment stopped, but went on with a slow but steady pace straight to the end of the course.

    The Amsteel is overkill for a tarp. I'm using the Speer no-tangle for the ridge line, small 9's for tension.

    For an el cheapo tarp, a full ridge line, configured so that the ridge line is taking most of the strain would be my choice...3 wraps around mini 'biners clipped to the tarp works for me.
