    Yup, probably been done before. Thought I'd start one, or another, to kind of showcase what we do with the tarps we've gotten from bco.

    Obviously I'm a fan of bco's products and it's the best money I've spent in regards to tarps.

    So please use this thread to show images of your setups with them if you wish.

    This was a super windy weekend by a lake. The wind blew my cousin's four man tent to the other side of the camp site while we were out and about. But my BCO 10x10 took it like a champ!

    Love that hang you have going there! I'm still a ground dweller. Have a hammock but yet to try it out anywhere other than at home. Maybe next year or this winter. Nice pics and thank you.

    Thanks for the link! It helps a bunch. If a mod wants to merge this into that thread that would be cool.

    Sadly a bunch of those photos were limited by Photobucket. My apologies for not seeing that thread earlier. Thank you for finding it for us.

    Edit. Maybe a mod can sticky one please.

    Not my finest hour but I did manage to get it set up without any of the 3 children setting themselves on fire....that's what winning looks like!
    Hope you are able to move forward with the wolf gray....

    Started out as a warm drizzly night. Finished up a bit on the cool side.

    This was my first trip out with it. Got a lot of side-wind and spent a chilly night. Dropped it on top of me around 3 or 4am and solved the wind problem just fine.

    Resolved that that would not happen again. Designed two "velcro-on" wings. They weigh 7oz, together, and I could just carry one. Here it is a couple weeks later, same are, on a campout I did with @Forestree. Worked really well this way. Perhaps a bit more "angle" (more of a 40-45, vs the 50-55 it is here) next time...

    How do you mean? all that gnarly looking wood laying around? No, that was firewood I just dragged in. The cleared area in the foreground was my fire pit. You can see my green kneeling pad on the right. It was on a ridge covered with scrub oak of some sort, and there was all sorts of good hardwood laying around for the gathering. Now that I look at it more closely, I think the stuff on the left was fatwood, and on the right was oak. I mix them about 1:3 for a combination of light and heat. The oak's hot, but creates very little light.

    Yes. It looked like you had arranged it in a half circle on your blindside.

    Honestly this is the first time setting it up. I do like the color. Going to copy you and leave it up till I get time to venture away from the house. Going to have to pick up some heavier Technora line from the BCUSA store . :)
