    a 12x12 square has a 17' ridgline. if hung diagonally.
    Yea, 17' is WAY too long. I CAN hang that far, but that is at the end of my range, & I'm nearly touching the ground by then. What I'm going for looks like the MacCat or BlackCat. About a 13' ridgeline with about a 4'9" bottom edge giving me side walls of about 4'10". I'm going to use the same cat cut as on the tarp. Oh, BTW; I just got the tarp. Will work on it this weekend.

    Jazilla: Nope, not condensation, it was/is free flowing water I got my butt wet Tuesday PM (or Wed AM, I'm not sure). It actually aint no thing, I fix good soon. & if I never fix it, maybe I'll remember to not rig in such a way that I touch the sides during a rain storm. The nylon dosn't seem to be coated at all, I did learn that if I rig very tight (in other words, the right way) it "leaks" less. I did start to have a problem with small leaks on the tarp ridgeline, stopped with just a little seamsealer (1/3 of a small bottle coated both sides+ of the 13' seam)
    When you have a backpack on, no matter where you are, you’re home.
    PAIN is INEVITABLE. MISERY is OPTIONAL.

    Yeah I see how flowing water would problematic. I don't think I have ever used my 9x9 in a good rain storm
