    DIY Tyvek ugly tarp. Aka Blizzard Camo Tarp

    This is my version of the Tyvek ugly tarp. Recently had the pleasure of another outing with UncleMJM and as we talked about it glowing in the dark in the east Texas woods, he dubbed it the Blizzard Camo Tarp. Which I took a fancy too.
    So, here's my DIY BCT.




    Made from 1443r soft Tyvek. And patterned from DIY gear supply's winter tarp.

    That is easily the nicest Tyvek project I've ever seen, and I'm not talking about the absence of advertising. Well done.

    Thank you, Sir. It was my first thread injecting project so there are many squiggly seams. But, it'll do.

    Great job, looks like a very nice tarp. Is the tyvec loud in the wind?

    Never. Lol. But in blowing rain or cold weather, it'll be nice.

    No, this tyvec is the 1443r "soft" type. It is quieter than silnylon.

    If you think the pictures are purty, ya oughta see it in person.

    Nice job on it EastTex. I'm glad you like the name too.

    Just don't take it to west TX where the panhandle is currently in a real deal blizzard. You'll lose it.
