Hi everybody: I'm planning on making a shaped tarp like the Wild Oasis / Gatewood Cape, but with an optional bug insert net tent instead of the perimeter netting. It will only function as a shelter, not as a poncho.
I think I understand the peak of the Gatewood Cape, which uses a webbing grommet harness thing to hold the trekking pole in place.
But how about the Wild Oasis? Is it just a reinforced peak? Does the trekking pole stay in place, or does it have a pocket to keep it from slipping around? What about in an MLD Trailstar or similar shelter?
Maybe someone would be so kind as to post pictures of how the trekking pole sits against the top of the shelter in these types of single-pole tarps.
It's the last piece of the puzzle before I start this project and I would greatly appreciate it!!
