    It turned out really nice - great job!

    How do you have your two hammocks set up?
    Are you using spreader bars to keep them apart? It's hard to tell from the pictures.

    Good to hear.

    I've just finished my Hex Tarp 1.1silnylon tarp and am waiting on suspension to rig it up, seal it, and finally get to test it along with the bugnet, TQ and UQ i made.

    My DIY Hex Tarp

    Thought I'd post a few pics of my second DIY tarp. I finished this hex tarp a few months ago. I used Scott's design (thanks Scott!) with a small mod that included sewing a small piece of double sided velcro near the tie-outs for cord control.

    Material was 1.1 sil-nylon with heavier fabric for the tie-out reinforcements. The bag was DIY with a no-see-um bottom in case the tarp is temporarily stored wet. The whole thing, including stakes, weighs in at just under a pound.







    Camping is fun!

    Finished my Winter Dream Tarp from DIY Gear Supply plans and gave it a test with low temps about 16 degrees with a stiff wind. It worked great, but next time I will close the doors a little tighter and I will probably add the pull-outs.

    Mountains should be climbed with as little effort as possible and without desire. ... To live only for some future goal is shallow. Itís the sides of the mountain that sustain life, not the top. Here's where things grow.
