Decided to do 5 different set ups with this one tarp!
A-frame with gables; same tarp, turned 90 degrees, and staked at 4 points!
Another view of the A-frame set up. Could also be used for hammocking!
Ground mode; drop one end down to the ground and move two stakes to the center loops; this is roomy and low.
view of the interior of the ground mode. it kinda looks like a wing or something.
Different ground mode set up; this time using the long ridge line
3 stakes on the back plus the two side wing stakes. should be enough room for 2 people plus their gear…
similar set up, with same number of stakes, different locations, plus the poles and their guy lines
Angled view of the alt set up.
basically a modified diamond set up; the 2 corner stakes from the previous set up has been moved to the tie outs where the triangles attach to the main panel.
Here is a much smaller, more protected set up. Basically half a Pup tent and half an A-frame tent. The extra material to one side of the two triangles have been folded under after staking down the corners.
Another view, you can see that the head and foot ends are not totally covered from one side, but they are covered amply by the triangles. I could move the awning up to another set of poles if I wanted to.
View to the inside of this small set up. In theory, two people could share the space, but realistically its great for one person and his/her gear.
Hope you enjoyed this post! 🙂
