    Thumbs up ty-tarp

    I made one and tested it this weekend in some pretty nasty weather. worked very well except a few drops from peak of ridge. Think maybe I "softened" it too much because it is a little fuzzy there. going to test some more and also may see if Kiwi or paint helps. Any thoughts?

    I use an 8x10 plain white Tyvek sheet I bought from materials concepts for $20. I like the white "interior" since it makes the living space so much brighter at mighty with a headlamp or lantern. I had good luck with the "button" tieouts, but have been experimenting with Cheap*******'s screw on attachment points. I repurposed the screw-caps from milk and OJ cartons and they seem to work well. A small hole drilled in the center and a stopper knotted loop of utility cord makes a good attachment point. Place the threaded male section under the tarp and screw the cap on--durable tieout. I would suggest not using the caps from 2-liter or other Coke-type soda bottles. They have sharp threads which may damage the Tyvek.
    I didn't wash mine, but spent some time crumpling the sheet while watching TV. It's not noisy, but still won't compress well. On the plus side, the bulk makes it seem a lot lighter!
