    Tarp Suggestion

    I have 20 yards of silnylon on the way to me. I need to make two tarps, but am unsure which plan to use. I would rather carry a bit more weight to avoid being wet and cold. Most of my camping will be three season.

    So far I am torn between the Blackcat plans and the drawing for Winter Dream from Backwoods Daydreamer. Any other suggestions?

    I own a Winter Dream, well Mandydawn has it now, and I can tell you that it is a great all around design for a tarp. We have used it in everything from frog-strangling rain storms to snow/sleet storms and it has never let us down. During the milder nights when the "doors" are not needed a section of shockcord and a mitten hook keep the doors pulled up out of the way. There is plenty of room for just about any size hanger. We will be making a blackcat soon as I want to try a smaller tarp. No others come to mind unless you would like to try and make a MacCat deluxe............
