    I'm getting a JRB 11x10 for Christmas

    At least I think I am. Mom asked me what I wanted I sent her the link. I have some of the STL's on my other tarp. Would they work with this one especially if you are trying to configure the tarp like this?

    This is a great tarp. I used mine on a solo canoe trip for a week in the Boundary Waters last June.

    One afternoon on the trip I experienced a 2-3 inch downpour in a two hour period and later that night sustained winds of 30-50 miles per hour which lasted all night and until I packed up the next morning. The tarp came through without damage... I was frankly surprised as the conditions were so extreme. I had homemade elastic tie outs on all points of the tarp and I'm sure this was a key factor.

    Also, you absolutely have to seam seal the main seam or, better, have Jack's do it for you.

    Merry Christmas!

    You will love it. I bought one last year. It is great protection. I also love the privacy it provides while at the HF hangs. Like your own private hotel room!

    You will love the JRB 10 x 11, I do mine anyway. You can use the STLs in this configuration but the tarp will be higher off the ground, or, you can use extra stakes to make an STL runner; but again, once it stretches it will come off the ground a little bit.

    Better would be to use existing mid-panel tie-outs or add grip clips and use the STLs on these. In this case stretch will lower the roof and widen the main room a little; but you keep a nice seal to the ground.

    Better yet, would be to invest in some Warbonnet doors or Griz Beak Doors. The straight edge of the JRB 10 x 11 makes add-on doors seal up very well (no cat cut to deal with) and will give you more room under protection.

    YUP YUP I got the tarp! Getting ready to play with it a bit in the backyard. Are there any links or vids that people can think of showing of different configurations with this?

    we'll tell you, only if you promise to post pics.
    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.

    I did a trial hang but no pics yet. I don't have a good hanging spot in my backyard (five foot fence). I am hoping to do a nice little day hike the next day or so. Thanks for the pics, others, keep them coming if you can!

    I set mine up using 4 STL's for that configuration. For the ends/doors, I use some Wallyworld bungees and one stake shared for each door. The STL's held up fine in some decent wind and snow recently.
