Impressive! Thanks for the update.
Only a few more days until the one year mark
Pics of current set up or it didn't happen!
I believe it’s still in the same configuration as shown in post #98 on March 29.
I'm guessing after the weather this weekend, it will be in a buried configuration...
Well the snow melted today and I set it up in the Tarp Tent configuration. @WhisperInThePine did a great tutorial on this set up here
Amazing the amount of space in that set up with full weather coverage!
Messed around with this set up today.
Instead of folding the corners back on the shelter, I folded them to the opening and tied them off to the opposite stake. Gonna have to crawl to get in, but it really seals this shelter up.
That one's similar to this setup. He has a way to open and close the front with a line running under from the inside.
Thanks for this field test. I need a new tarp ........despite what my wife thinks.
Well, I guess we will just keep this going and see how long this thing will hold up. It has been getting rained on for a few days on and off.
Has the color faded much?
It has faded a little. I honestly thought it would fade more that it has though. I also thought I would be doing some repairs on it by now.
True testimony as to the quality of this piece of gear. Thank you @IA Woodsman for doing this demonstration.
Owning your tarps not needing to repair doesnt surprise me. This is quality gear. I am looking forward to picking up a tee-pee style tarp when you get those completed. Hopefully in white
Is the MEST tarp the same material and construction only different in size?
Pretty amazing if you think about it.
A years worth of UV damage, wind, rain, snow loads, bird droppings, and still ticking.
I've been MIA for a while. I was curious how the tarp experiment was going. Good to see its holding up.
Unfortunately got it caught on the mower the other day and ripped it.
I guess the camo worked a little too well!
LOL a line caught the deck and I did not see it in time. I could wash it, sew it, and seam seal it and see what happens.
Actually that would be a great idea. Maybe sew it by hand as though it happened out in the field. Dental floss thread is optional.
Sew it up slap some 100mph tape on it call it good!
