    True. That being said, mine get near constant use & have been in place for almost 2 years. So a minimum of at least 500 uses, & sometimes the tarp is left up all day, so lets say a minimum of 3 weeks in the sun. As I usually am under heavy shade, (& a lot of times setup after dark, take down before sunrise) maybe that makes a diff. I am surprised they have lasted so long.
    When you have a backpack on, no matter where you are, you’re home.
    PAIN is INEVITABLE. MISERY is OPTIONAL.

    Nice video treenester. I use to take scouts to that very spot. We weathered a tornado that came up river there one night about 30 years ago and I was in a hammock.

    Nice video! Looked cozy!
    What kinda of webbing are you hanging from? Looks cool.

    Acer
    It's better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.

    Formerly known as Acercanto, my trail name is MacGuyver to some, and Pucker Factor to others.

    It's not procrastinating, its proactively delaying the implementation of the energy-intensive phase of the project until the enthusiasm factor is at its maximum effectiveness. - Randy Glasbergen

    It's a hollow-braid camo webbing I got from a bait store. Prolly a little heavy for what I need. Hope to start on a new tarp soon. Got some more of the $1.50/yd Wally World rip-stop just waitin to be sewn.
