    Tarp Guy-Line Stowage

    DIYed a new tarp. A friend thought the guy-line stowage idea was a good one, so I wanted to share it here on the forum(where I learned everything I know related to hammock camping).
    Just a piece of elastic band sewn to the inside hem near each tie out loop.

    The trees are drawing me near, I've got to find out why?

    I like it. I'm working on incorporating something very similar on BWDD tarps (one prototype model went out a few months back).

    That's a good hefty piece of elastic there. Should do the job very well.

    Another idea that anyone can add to any tarp w/o sewing is to make a loop of shock cord, about 4" loop (so 9" of shock cord) with a mini-cord lock on it. Larks head the shock cord to your tie-out, wrap your cord and stuff half through the loop and snug up with cord lock.

    Cool idea. I bet it keeps the knots down.
