    The good, its huge...

    The bad, its huge...

    I have the same tarp and have pitched it a few times... It has tons of options... Best thing would be to take it in the back yard and start putting it up in different configurations.

    Here is how we pitched it for 2 hammocks over labor day.


    in A-Frame you have 3 spots you can tie ridgelines, middle and each side to really open it up for a huge space underneath.

    Good: It's huge and has many tie out points for different setups configurations,

    Bad: It's relatively heavy as compared to most other tarps. Some people dislike the PU coating and have experienced it rotting and separating off from the nylon after extended use.

    It's mainly designed to be suspended in the diamond configuration (check out TehNoff's thread "learnin me some tarp" directly below for a pic). The problem with this is that the diagonal is almost 17 feet long and it can be hard to find to trees with that much space. I typically have it set up in a basic A-frame (with or without one side held up in porch mode depending on the situation), it can be a little finicky to get taught this way however.

    here is the link to my album. I love my noah 12, it's huge and packs down pretty small for it's size

    On the diamond, the ridgeline length is ~17'

    You can't really tell, but in the last pic, the tarp is tied to sticks that were buried in the snow as snow anchors.

    And one summer pic -

    Not a lot of info on the tarp setup itself, but hopefully it helps.
