Jimmy and I went camping this weekend and I just had to try this tarp shelter. This ended up being a very roomy and stable setup, lots of head room and really wide. This was my first try with this setup and it wasn't hard to put up at all= went up pretty fast, I might use this again soon.

Gene, What size/shape tarp did you use for this last one?

Hi Jeff, it is a 10' x 10' tarp made by DD Hammocks. What's holding it up is just a Wmart trecking pole with a spare sock on the handle but you could use a stick.

Lots of options with this tarp.

It was a beautiful day here today in the low 70's, so I went outside and practiced some more tarp shelters. Oh yay...
Yeah, the things we do to entertain ourselves, right.

Wmart 5x7 tarp for $9 and change. This blue one folds up real small and light, I keep it in my everyday kit mainly for a ground sheet but I thought I'd try it out as a quick shelter= it works:

I like the truck.

Mama looks awful proud of her new tarp shelter, mine would want to know where the love seat was supposed to go.

Yeah, I can't get my girl to go camping either...

I left that shelter up last night, when I walked the dog after midnight it was raining. We sat in that shelter for about 20 minutes and it was dry and awesome. I might try that shelter again.

I did not know that Harbor Freight carried rubber gloves. I will have to go look for them. I have quite a few tarps from Harbor Freight. I do not have a lot of the real big ones for tarp tents but I have many little ones.  Bought a bunch of them after I saw homeless people under an overpass on night when it was snowing. I got the size that someone could use to wrap around them or cut a hole and make a poncho. The small ones are gives a-ways and for the kid's BOB's

It's surprising what HFT carries some times.  Kinda like a kid in a candy shop when I go in there  Big Grin
