    I love this. It brings what we do into perspective. But I'm only going to dwell on that for a second because I don't want to crush my little world.

    I'm glad it's not just my wife... I try to explain the lure of Dutchware but she just rolls her eyes.

    I like this method; it is very quick and simplistic, but how well would it work with a tarp with cat cuts?
    I may be dumb, but at least I'm ugly!

    I've done so much, with so little, for so long, now I can do anything with nothing.

    It's not peer pressure, it's just your turn.

    After trying multiple methods of suspending a tarp, this has become by far my favorite, so much so that I've quit looking for other methods!

    I'm with you there. I've actually been using this method for over a year... that's the longest ever for me to stick with one style.
    Good luck,

    Yes! I hear ya! I have tried quite a few setups, and this is both easy and reliable. I like both the dutchware and 2 mini biner setup. I am using the dutch setup for my family's tarps, and I am using the mini biner setup for the equipment that I am getting together for a hammock backpacking class.

    It works great for tarps of all types and designs. These lines have by far taken over as the most popular ridge-line method we offer, outselling out other styles 10-1.

    I like this method (and the method I show in the blog that uses two carabiners) because it allows the tarp to slid back and forth easily so you can center the tarp between anchor points and your hammock.



    Thanks for the post. It got me off my duff and I changed up my crl to a fly and hook from a fly, hook and two prusiks. Better V on each end and way easier set up and take down, especially in the cold. Your illustrations are always incredibly helpful.
