    8x10 REI tarp for $16.00

    Hey all,

    REI is currently selling the footprint for their kingdom 6 tent for 16.00 if you are a member. The tent is 8x10 so the footprint may be a touch smaller than that. A couple of straight forward mods and this thing could work well. I ordered one so I will let you know how it all works out.

    good call.. a similarly sized tarp is the chinook tarp, little more expensive but relatively inexpensive as far as tarps go. I think I picked up a 12x14 last year for 40.00 after shipping. Prices will vary as they're available but worth checking out. Great tarp and cheap.

    I picked up one of those tarps last year in the 12X9.5 size and just used it as a winter tarp this past weekend. There is an off set to the pull outs I thought was weird. But I sewed extras on to make them line up and I now can fold both ends in like doors! All for 35 bucks!

    CRAP! It's Christmas season and I can't spend $ on hammock stuff right now! I'd jump on that one if I could, one for me and my son. There is a lot of good reviews on this tarp. After fixing the offset, your good to go.
