    UGQ WD11 Pole Mod

    I've been playing around with pole mod on a WD 11 tarp... Here are some pics with the tarp setup in full fly, these where taken at the FLH3 hang. I used some Easton Alum tent poles I had from a tent that has been retired.

    Crazy coverage with this mod and super simple top do...

    Looks like a nice mod. Seems to open up the middle area to give you more headroom. Dang that tarp looks big with 2 hammocks under it! Pole mod looks like it gave you the ability to be able to hang the 2 hammocks together like that.

    WD11 is a BIG tarp, easily get two hammocks under it, WD12 is even bigger... Missy & I enjoy spending time in the woods together with the double hang.

    SHAZAM!! This is an awesome idea! I have been wondering how to keep my tarp from conflicting with my WBRR, and I think you just posted the solution for me. I'm assuming a loop on the ridgeline, then pockets of some sort on the hemline?? Could you get some closeup pics of those two areas? Also, how many sections of pole did you use? Sweet.....thanks for posting this!

    Yes on both the pockets and loop at ridge line. I used velco strips for ridgeline loops, first run with GG but it was too light a ripped. You'll need to open flat feld seam with seam ripper for about 1" on underside of tarp and insert your loop material. Bar tack is in place... I built pockets out of 200d, testing one going regarding durability of 200d pockets. Pole length was 2" longer than tarp wide at center location. Pole available online from several sources in 13" & 18" length. Mine are the 13" one which fit in WD11 stuff sack... BONUS!!!

    Howdy Neighbor.... we are working on a new tarp that will have the option to be free standing, i.e. no trees needed for more traditional ground campers...
