    Prussic at the tarp to single line with a small fixed loop at the end for going over the stake is the THIRD method I've used, and the one I've stuck with. It is a winner.

    HYOH.

    I usually just put a marlin spike hitch around the stake and put it in the ground

    +1, infinitely adjustable, no extra cordage. For self-tensioning I just tie a loop of shock-cord around each tarp attach point and leave it there; guyline to the shockcord loop, or if staking very close just put stake through shockcord loop.
    HYOH!

    The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy,
    while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn."

    I use to use both self tensioners and prussics, now I just use a single, plain ol' line of Zing-It. Seems easiest for me. KISS, etc...
