    The prussics (the loopy bits of the prussic which are tight around the ridgeline) act as drip lines though so in reality that doesn't happen.

    excellent vid shug, most entertaining.

    You are indeed correct. I wanted a line under my tarp so i sewed grosgrain loops on the bottom (inside) of the tarp's ridge line, just an inch or so from each end. The loops face toward the middle of the tarp.

    The line under my tarp connects under/inside the tarp at both ends. No drips!

    Before I tied the line to both sides, I added 7 or 8 loops. They keep things were you want them instead of them sliding to the middle of the line when it is weighted.
    don`t leave the CREATOR out of the creation!

    I remember at the Linville Gorge Hang, Ken mentioned that by hanging the tarp under the RL, it could save some wear and tear on the tarp, as opposed to the tarp on top of the RL where the tarp would have contact with the RL.
    Something else to consider….

    * edited to add- If I recall correctly, Ken made mention someone here on HF had made mention of this previous to him mentioning it to me. (I'm not sure who that was)

    Thanks Shug,

    Your input on this aspect of over or under RL is certainly valuable since you get so much snow to be able check it out (and not to mention your hang time )

    Had an ice storm this past weekend and I agree with Shug, it definitely needs to be under when you expect snow or ice.
