    Default Looking for Tyvek

    As I and others have posted it makes a great foot print for a tent. I now have a new tent and am out. Does anyone know where I could pick up a 10' L or so scrap or roll end?

    Thanks,
    Dave

    Hit a few residential construction sites, some one will probably have a chunk left over.

    Default Tyvek

    Try posting an add on Craigslist. Never know what someone might want to give away.

    I sell Typar housewrap and it's tougher than Tyvek, but also a little heavier. If you could find ten guys that want a 9x10 piece (9x100 roll) I could be persuaded to cut them for $15 each plus shipping. I'm not sure that it's better than a blue tarp, though.

    I don't know about Typar, but Tyveck is a lot better than a blue tarp. Tougher, lighter and usually free.

    Saw some on ebay today, pretty cheap. It was in the tent section.
