    Eno Pro Fly Tarp Mods?

    Hey all,

    I am a trip leader for the University of Georgia's outdoor adventure program and I was recently out in the Pisgah National Forest near John Rock (NC near Brevard and Hendersonville.) To sum up, temperatures dropped to around 10 degrees and snow fell overnight. Besides freezing in my New River/Eno DN setup, my Eno tarp proved to be rather useless. I used the stock bungee connections to each tree and during the night the weight of the snow caused the bungee connector to pop and my tart fell on top of me, and with it cold snow.

    Do you guys have any suggestions for better/tighter/longer lasting hangs for the tarp?

    Thanks!

    Sell it and buy a Superfly...

    For almost the same weight you can get twice the coverage plus doors... I used my profly for a year+ and liked it except in cold, or wet or when I needed to keep light out(sleeping in state parks and in my back yard)... So basically it was a heavy not very covering tarp...
    Live, Laugh, Love, if that doesn't work. Load, Aim and Fire, repeat as necessary...

    Buy, Try, Learn, Repeat

    Replace the lines with some zing it or even mason line. Check out how some of the others are doing their tie outs and that will help prevent the bungies from breaking in the future. You should be able to stay pretty dry with that tarp, just need to pay a bit more attention where and how you hang it.
    If you ain't havin' fun, you're doin' it wrong
