    JRB 11x10

    Anyone have a bunch of pics of different ways of setting this up? I just got it and it has me dumbfounded at what you can do with this thing! Any recommendations on what to do for a ridgeline on the 11ft side? I was going to just get 25 ft of 1.75 zing it and run it through the end ribbons and middle one with some dutch flies. Seems this would work in theory? Right now I just have two tie offs coming from the end with nothing going through the middle ribbon which causes sag a little. Figured I could fix it like this? Help...please!

    Yeah I saw those pictures. I cant see where they have line running though. I just didn't know if anyone had video of them setting theirs up or not. Pictures they have don't really tell me all that much. Thanks for the reply though.

    All I have ever done with mine is attach a line to the loops on the ends and run it to a tree. Either the loop right in the center along the 11 foot length where I seam sealed it - that's how I do it most of the time. Or on one of the loops off center to set up a Baker Hut. All seems to work fine for several years. I have never set it up on the 10 ft RL as a hut, but I will some day.

    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    You don't have to run a line thru it. Some people do, but it's not reqired. I have used it both with the 11 ft side as the ridgeline and the 10 ft side as the ridge line, as shown on their web site. I found it very useful using the 10 ft side as ridgeline and the sides down to the ground. Nice during cold weather. No pictures - sorry.

    Thanks for the pics that was a help, and I know what you mean with the 10 and 11 ridgeline. Looking at it and picturing it after you said that helped. Thanks a ton guys!
