    spent half the morning trying out different excuses to get out of Mothers Day festivities, finally got out long enough for a couple of basic setups.

    Thanks IA for the nice setup you did there.

    Great thread.

    Can anyone provide details/pictures of how big/small the package is all packed up?

    Any ideas what this setup weighs?

    I think I will need one of these.

    The 10' x 10' tarp with the bag, weighs 1 lb, 14 oz.

    Default Another A Frame

    This set up only takes 4 pieces of line and 3 stakes. One of the things I like about this set up is that you can have a small fire in front of it since the peak is so high.

    I try to get the first corner as high as I can and tie a taunt line hitch.



    The next step is to stake out the rear of the shelter.



    After that you stake out the two sides.



    Once again a 10x10 is a very roomy tarp.

    Call me old fashioned but I like the old simple A frame.

    Both of those are nice. I think the IA option would be good to redirect the wind, especially during the winter. Homeslice was doing something similar at the winter meet, and he said it worked good, wedged into the wind.

    I can't wait to try some of these. There was a picture around of someone who'd rigged a shelter with just one trekking pole. I'll have to try to dig it up. That shelter looked great.
