    That was a good choice - it should work out great for you.

    Just a reminder to those who find yourself in a similar quandary -
    Get yourself a $5 plastic drop cloth, cut to the approximate size and hang it. You can stake it out in porch mode, relaxed pitch and storm pitch and really get a feel for the size. Then take out the scissors, cut down to the next smaller tarp size and play some more. This 1 hr exercise takes ALL the speculation and guess work out of the decision.

    PS. I went with the WB Edge, sized right between the Std and Deluxe so I didn't have to choose between the two.

    :
    There are at least dozens of opinions advising specific products and sizes offered here everyday. And then there is advice like your to help someone find out efficiently what is best for her.

    Better than opinions for the person who has to make an informed decision, that's great advice.

    Just a regular 10x12 is big enough to set up in tent mode with doors.

    Well I have gone and done it myself. I just placed my order for a WB superfly in olive. I doubt I will get it before we go out in two weeks but it is on order either way. Looking forward to it.

    I debated over camo or the olive but I almost went with the camo only because the olive is on backorder. So we will see. I just couldn't justify the extra $25 for something I wasn't so sure on. either way a excellent tarp is on the way.
