    I'm glad I'm not the only one who's stringing stuff up all over the house! Looks good. I'm one of the ones who keeps my lines off my tarp since I use a poncho tarp. When I finally get a Maccat, I'll keep em on the tarp.

    I like it Opie. This is one of the ways I most often string my tarps up, just with mini-biners instead of toggles on the ends.

    Hi Opie,

    If left to my own devices I would put the toggle on the fixed eye and "toggle" it through a prussik loop on the main line. Seems like a more direct pull that way while still allowing for adjustment.

    BTW, waiting for you to start taking orders . . . I am in need of WhOpie Slings!

    yeah...the first 3 pictures with the toggle....that's what I was talking about. Looks good. Once our accepting orders again, I might have to put one in for that myself. any idea on pricing for that setup?

    That adds another element to the line thats not necessary. (and would also make it more expensive.) But it is another option.... Remember... I do custom work!!!

    Yep, taking orders again.

    Fisher... as for price... It will vary based on how much line you want on either end... The tarp pictured as a 12' RL. The lines I used are 10' so that gives you about 30+ feet between trees.

    The 2 10' sections with toggles comes in at $17.50

    Looks good Opie as usual.

    No stealth camping with that tarp.
