    I'm just wondering if the middle tie out (on this side) is necessary. I was planning on putting a tie out on each corner and then 3 feet in from each corner(leaving a 6 foot stretch in the middle (total of 4 tie out on each side). Does any one see a problem with that???
    The only reason i have the middle one is so i can use the tarp as a 10foot ridge line also

    Well it's definately necessary in that perspective... I don't plans on useing mine that way. Primarily I want it for added privacy when on Boy Scout campouts(I'm an Asst Scoutmaster). The BSA has rules and reg about changing with boys around. Otherwise I'd stick to the stock tarp that came with my HH EXPED.

    Very Well Done. Lotsa coverage. Ain't it fun? Doesn't it make you proud to dwell under something YOU made?
    Sweet!

    Don't knock the old sewing machines. Most are still great workers. The one I currently use is a singer manufactured in 1909. Yes, its 100 years old, treadle operated, and works just fine. (being able to steer fabric while doing the feet moving is a little like learning to play the drums, but you get used to it.)

    Nice work. It made me dig my wife's "gear making machine" out of the closet. Now to think of a project ....
