VIDEO: A Walk and Two Tricks
In this video, shot in Germantown Reserve on the Twin Creek Trail. During the hike I recorded a method for wrapping a tarp, by weaving the tie-outs. I also talk about cleaning a pot with dirt.

Great video, thanks for posting it.
I have tried the furling of the tarp, a stuff sack, bishop bag and all kinds of stuff but I always come back too the snake skins. Lucky for me mine are made out of cuben so the weight penalty is minimal, but there still is added weight which I just can't seem to get rid of.
