My Locale John S. hasn't told us about their geographical region yet.
About Me Originally from Louisiana, I enjoyed camping in my Boy Scouting days and eventually became an Eagle Scout. Many years later (2002), I discovered backpacking after going on an REI multisport trip to Alaska. My first backpack was to Grand Canyon, and I was hooked!

Re: Re: center ridge
Why does JacksrBetter call their tarp 8' x 8' when it's 10 inches shorter than that on both sides, 7'2" x 7'2"? Call it what it is!
