    Nice job on the hammock, Grizz!
    Thanks for the tarp photos and report. Nice color!
    Looks like I know what I want for my birthday this coming year.

    JRB tarp with tie-outs

    Slowhike and HC4U suggested using tie-outs. HANGnOUT reports having done that with his Cuban tarp. This morning I tried it with a MacCat Deluxe. It was a bit tight and lacking in coverage.

    But using tie-outs with the JRB tarp is a different story altogether. I pitched it so that the foot end was flush up against one end of the tarp, leaving the head end free to "close the doors".

    We are living in style now!

    Yes. They seem to slide around less on the JRB tarp than the MacCat Deluxe. Cool gizmos, first time I've used them.

    now that's looking like a nice, large place to hang the bridge!
    i can see where you would be concerned w/ the open ends, but between the folded flaps like you have in the pictures & possibly an end cover or two, i'd say you'll be swinging in style!
    looking good!

    Excellent Grizz (and nice footwarmer!)

    The photos also make it easy to see what you mean by using triangular shaped end caps too. Why the seam in the middle of the endcap, is that a zipper there?

    Looks good Grizz. Might have to try those clips on my tarp. Seems like this would be more of a warm weather no blowing rain tarp pitch. What's your opinion on that?
