    That's the one! Thanks a bunch Mac. The last one, with the dog, looks like it'd be a good, roomy but fairly weather-freindly shelter.

    two pole setup, uses only 4 to 6 ft of cord and 6 pegs
    there are many other ways to configure the tarp using this method, try it out

    Got mine on order. Sotramk's setup is great. The pictures of how you guys are setting them up really convinced me to get one. Thanks.

    I received my new BCUSA tarp yesterday. This is not my first tarp, but it IS the first I have owned that is so nicely finished. It also my largest tarp.

    I strung it up today between two trees in the back yard. I was amazed at how quickly it can be put up in a simple A frame shape, with the top mounted loops for the cord, and a couple of stakes per side. It rode out a very stiff thunder storm this morning. Winds were better than 50 mph, but the tarp was steady, and it was dry under it.

    I am in the process of putting together a kit, specific to this tarp, that will go with the tarp when I take it afield. Cordage, S Biner hooks, stakes and 550 para cord, cut to length, and packed in a baggie.

    Just a thought for you when you erect a tarp in that manner, you may want to think about putting a prusik knot on the out side tabs on the ridge line. That way you can tighten the ridge line so it dosent fold on you like in your pic

    Just tryin to help
