newbie Tarp pitching inquiry on 09/11/2012 14:04:53 MDT Print View

Please help: where's a good resource to learn different pitch options for my tarp?

Most of what I find on youtube is either for solo 8x5's or survivalist types using heavy tarps.

I got an Oware tarp off Gear Swap...it's a sealed flat tarp measuring 9'6" x 7'8". It is configured [as far as tie-outs etc] like the FlatTarp2.5 9x9 on their site here: http://shop.bivysack.com/product.sc?productId=36&categoryId=6

Seeing as I am headed for the Mt Whitney region soon, it's time for me to start practicing. Thanks All.

Here is a thread that should get you started. I used this thread over a year ago to help when i was getting into tarping.
