thanks that makes sense now, not how I had imagined it but better. Thank you for the photos.
It sure is nice having a tarp this light that I trust. Here's the Bushcraft Outfitters 10x10 Silnylon back out on the coast.
The slugs like it too.
Simply Light Designs 11' Trail Layer Hammock, Dual Zip Integral Bug Net,
Double Layer Nylon (1.9 oz. multi-cam outer, 1.6 oz. dk. brown inner)
Snugpak Underquilt, 2QZQ Underquilt Protector, & Caribiner/Atlas Strap suspension
Tarp is a Bushcraft Outfitters OD 10X12 w/ BCO 950# Ridgeline & Technora tie-outs in
Fair Weather Porch-Mode!
(Tarps been up for 2 months now...wouldn't know it to look at it!)
What do you mean by Enhanced?
Multicam 10X10 and Enhanced MEST Poncho set up.
Well not the first time its rained while hammocking but first time with the tarp up. It worked very well even though I did a terrible job of staking it. I was on top and had about 5 drops fall on my face over the course of about 2 hrs which I thought was pretty good because it poured and besides that it kept everything off.
I still want to make a huge pyramid by combining 4 bcusa 10x10’s in diamond/wedge/plow mode.
I just don’t have enough 10x10’s...
@WhisperInThePine I like this setup, trying to figure out how the tarp is oriented to make it happen.
I will see about doing an instructional thread. I've been asked a couple times about it now.
Coyote 10x10 hunting shack.
With my eberlestock recliner, it's downright palatial.
I know, it looks like all I can see is a pile of leaves, but I'm up on a rock face overlooking the north slope from one "window", the hollow straight (down) ahead, and the south slope from the right hand "window."
My back is to the top of the mountain (somewhere up there), so the night wind will be deflected by the tarp, but I'm upwind of the hollow and the slopes during daylight hours.
Enjoying the first snow of the year while sitting under the 10x10 Woodland Camo Tarp, warm fire and a couple cold refreshments.
Anyone have a photo of the white 10x10? I want to pick one up, but all these photos of the green/coyote are making me jelly.
Got out in the single digits to close out the year and test a sleep system I'm trying to use to replace the MSS by changing quilts instead of bags.... I'm close ;-)
Staked a separate peg for the MEST to make it a quick release / close door and to help vent for condensation
I need to figure out something for the sides in heavier snow but this time only woke up with it on my feet
The high winds we had recently pulled the corner and middle side stakes out of the frozen ground. There was no harm to the tie outs.
You can see the gouge and chunk of frozen dirt it pulled out.
Are you using angle iron as your stakes for winter, @Sefton ?
Been thinking about doing something like that.
No Sir. Those a US pup tent stakes that came with a shelter half I bought. This is setup in my back yard.
I'm not very Bushcraft this past year.
For the 2nd time the wind pulled both corner stakes out of the ground.
No real damage to tabs.
Drove the stakes back .
Left side was tossed a few feet.
I had a length of Paracord still on the tab and the wind wrapped it around the next stake.
Still proving itself how well made it is.
My BCUSA 10x10 this past weekend. Constant wind, some rain. Seam sealed it this time, and stayed dry (imagine that!)
Does anyone know if the BCO Multicam tarp 10x10 (or even 10x12) will fit into a Center Line Systems G2 gear roll with appropriate sized cords and stakes?
Thanks, Team BCUSA!
