So I'm finally getting around to setting up my tarp guylines according to the suggestions in Advanced Tarp Techniques for Inclement Conditions. A few questions tho: When running a single side guyline through all the side guyloops, has anyone else had problems keeping the tarp guyloops from sliding along the guyline? This is especially pronounced when trying to pitch the tarp low to the ground, since the angles in the guylines are less acute. A good wind can make a taut pitch a bit flappy this way.
I thought of tying figure 8 knots in the line, at each guyloop, but that kind of ruins the ability to pitch the tarp at varying heights.
FYI I'm using an Oware Cat 1.1 tarp, which has 3 guyloops per side. I'm trying to get this right w/ twine before chopping up my $20 guyline set. Yes, I have the cams too, but probably will only use them on ridgelines, or possibly also with one on the head-end of each long side guyline, so they can be adjusted from under the tarp (again, multiple figure8 knots prohibits this).
Wow--sorry so long winded, tough to describe. Any thoughts?
