Ahhhhh! Thanks for the highlighting, just thought those were branches! I guess you could do the same with hiking poles or is it here too much side stress?
If you could get a knot to not slide on the slick pole. Knot not; is that a double negative?
Now thats what im talking about that is a tarp.
I carry 6 stakes at the moment, one for each corner and one for each of the side pull outs. I just use small sticks for the BB pull outs as I don't mind accidentally stepping on them.
Guying out the side pull outs does take up a lot of room around the perimeter so I might have to give this a try somehow.
