    I have 4 I used once and went another route. They've been collecting dust for 2+ years.

    PM your info and I can shoot them out to you.

    Are you looking for the small ones or the ones with the wire gate?

    I thought about calling on Stu, but figured there are probably quite a few floating around from trial and error set-ups that aren't getting used. I'll head to Stu if I can't get the ones I need here. I am getting my kelty Noah 16 tarp rigged up.

    What's your project, Opie? You could make a quickie adjustable hammock with lots of end strings for experimentation purposes - easier than making tiny whoopie slings. For hiking a bunch of small pieces of hardware on adajacent strings could cause some awful tangles, though.

    WV, getting my Kelty Noah 16 tarp set-up for multi vehicular remote camping. Rather than have several smaller tarps, and mess with rain flies on tents (for those that sleep in them) we just string up several large tarps to cover all of our base camp and sleeping quarters. The tarp came with the plastic figure 9', but they didnt last past the test set-up.
