Have any of you done any extensive tenting just using a tarp up here?
Ive been seeing some ways to set them up in both my survival book and various other websites.
Very interested in them for Lightweight mountain shelter. But they look like they would be hard to setup to make very wind resistant. Looks like you could make a very roomy one guys shelter out of a 10x12, and lighter weight than a commercial one man tent.
But they look great for woods camping, maybe even better than a tent. Lighter, set them up as the situation dictates. Just a roof set high for fair weather or close them in for wet weather,
Bugs getting in are about the only drawback I see with them if using in a wooded area.
