    Chinook owners please help

    I finally got around to "unfolding" my tarp for the first time to inspect it. It took about 10 minutes to get it fully unfolded because the interior side of the tarp was stuck to itself. I literally had to "peel" the two halves apart from each other. No rips or anything but lord only knows what this has done to the coating (which is what Im assuming caused the sides to be stuck together.) Has anyone else had this problem? If so, has it caused any issues down the road?

    I don't have a Chinook tarp but have encountered something similar in the past. The coating should be fine. I'd hang it and test it waterproofing if you are concerned and if it's fine rub some talcum powder on the coated side before packing it to prevent the sticking.
    Don't let life get in the way of living.
