    Interesting shape! It will be interesting to see what you think of it later after having it a while. Looks nice. Thanks for sharing!

    Using the jackson creek access for a circuit of Lakes Bill, Myrtle , Chalice and Cathedral Mt,
    from there maybe dropping down into Lee's Paddocks & back to the car.
    Hike in to Reynolds falls behind Cradle Mt..
    Maybe fly or boat in to a couple of small remote islands in Bass Strait. Have a couple in mind but access is restricted.

    Have to squeeze a long float trip/ river journey in there too....

    I used to live in Tassie...so its always going to be a endless list

    Sounds like a heap of adventure in store. I am new to Tassie and loving the small amount I have seen so far. If you need a hand getting anywhere and don' t want to leave your car at the track let me know, happy to help out if I can. I am at Deloraine.

    'Li'l Red' gets a few mods......

    micro end.... dare I say 'blast' doors.




    simple self tensioning tie outs....working well so far.



    and a ridgeline organizer....Took the weight of a full water bottle off the ridgeline & placed it on the spreader bar.
    The dimensions are too small at the moment, need to make a larger one to suit the headlamp & the length of the gatorade bottle,
    which I use if I get thirsty during the night.



    It's a good feeling having a 'customised' home away from home.

    Nice "blast doors"! You look to be a fan of the color red? Is that a diy bridge, and a spreader bar only at one end?
    Good luck,

    It's a hybrid made by Madtree...its called a Tarseer, Redoleary.
    Just adding all these extra bits & pieces to suit me & make it more comfortable
    in the range of weather conditions I go walking in over here.

    Cool winter winds were blowing away much of my body heat, so I added a undercover & small end doors...
    ..but I also like to see whats hopping around out there during the night. Its all a compromise function vs weight.
    I had a sugar glider hit the tarp a few nights ago & slide off onto the ground.

    Scared the *#$% out of me in the middle of the moonlit night....

    As for the colour...its the only material I have at the moment.
    Although I will be ordering some forest green soon....

    Nice looking tarp!

    It's satisfying to use a DIY project, eh?

    But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed. (Luke 5:16 NIV)

    He said to them, “But now let the one who has a moneybag take it, and likewise a knapsack. And let the one who has no sword sell his cloak and buy one." (Luke 22:36 ESV)

    While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. (1 Thessalonians 5:3 ESV)
