    questions about tie outs on a winter tarp

    I'm going to make a winter tarp with doors. It will be 12' x 10'. How far from the outside edges should I put my tie outs for the doors. Also I would like 2 side pulls on each side...where is the optimal place to put those? Last, I'm thinking of velcro to keep the doors together. Would this be good or overkill. Thanks in advance.

    Make the doors so they overlap ~6" and skip the velcro. You will be glad you did at 3am when its cold and you need to get out in a hurry for a nature call.
