    Updated Webpage

    Just FYI - I updated the page on staying dry. Nothing cosmic for the regulars here but I clarified a few things for newbies...better pics, added the winter tarps, Hammock Hut, SuperFly, etc. Still need to add a section on materials and get some better pics of a few things, though.

    What do y'all see that needs to be added?

    I also haven't sent out the requests for permission yet, so if you see one of your pics on there you'll be getting an email soon asking for permission to use it. I don't like people using my stuff w/o permission so I always ask other folks if I can use their work on my page.

    You might want to mention about using leaf liter and piling against the tarp to close off the sides to prevent wind from sneaking under.

    Very good review of the options and whats available.

    I put that at the bottom of the page on staying warm. Tarps are for both so I guess it could go on either page, though.

    Wow, this is getting to be so complete that "encyclopedic" is the adjective that comes to mind. Great update. All I can think of:
    1. This is getting to be so comprehensive that maybe an FAQ or some other synopsis at the beginning might help folks that don't have the patience to read the whole thing. You do have the TOC at the top which helps get people to the right section. I dunno, just a thought.
    2. At the risk of making it even longer, you could add a section on tarp attachments, i.e. common knots, NiteIze Figure 9's, etc. I am a Figure 9 convert for my tiedowns. You have a start on this with the one picture of the non-elastic tensioner from Marie-Noelle.

    Great work man!
