    That's a great idea Bubba! Will setup my new tarp that way.

    Cheers

    gmcttr's picture looks like it could have been a picture of my tarp tie out Saved me looking for a picture. If you make the continuous loop smaller, you can get almost right down to the ground.

    I also tie off the end of the guy line to the tie-out on the tarp as a fail safe in case the shock cord breaks.

    The other end of the guy line is attached to the stake with a marlin spike hitch.

    I love it. This is very helpful. Looks like I have some work to do.
