Did this video help you?

TheFatPinkPig: would you need a ground cloth in a A-frame setup? and If it rains will it still be dry?

savedpurplecat: Thanks for your demo we are new to tarping so this was just what we needed :) Tim

Jacky V.: Helpful vid, thanks!

Miles McCall: You can solve both the rain pooling issue for the 'modified a-frame' and the wrinkles in the flying diamond if you post a stick or trekking pole inside the shelter. It will also give you more head room, and l gives you a centered place to hang a bug net. Granted, you'll have to work around said pole while you're inside. Or, if you favor ridgelines, you could run a second one over the tarp and pull it up from a tie out.

ColoradoCamper: Thank you. Cheers

ColoradoCamper: I haven't tried any other CCS gear, but I love the tundra tarp so far.

ManScoutsofAmerica: your flying diamond had slack because the tarp is a rectangle. that setup works best with a square. good vid

drail80s: CCS the best

ColoradoCamper: Thanks for the kind words. I used to think trekking poles were just for old guys with bad knees, but now I always have them with me. As you said, multiple uses, plus they make downhill hiking much easier with less impact. They rock.

ColoradoCamper: Search my channel for "DIY Bonded Tarp Pullouts" Or, alter the address in your web browser with this: /watch?v=q8zhiup2pVY

GeeDub: Good vid, can you be a little smoother, slower and steadier on filming? thanks!

ColoradoCamper: Sorry, I don't own an HD camera. Wish I did.

seattwa: Where is the video on how you added pull outs to your tarp?

seattwa: Duh! What an idiot! I can't belive I didn't see that. I only searched your channel three times looking for it! Jeez! Thanks.

ColoradoCamper: That makes sense. Thanks for pointing it out. Cheers.

articat49: Nice rig line on the lean to

MrMCBvideo: Superb demonstration(s)!!! Thanks for the share!

xxxxoen: Low quality resolution on your video...

GreencampRhodie: Brilliant, no frills post. Well done and cheers. Look forward to more configurations. I use a double ridge line with tarp between lines, lower line can then be used as a hang line for lightweight kit. Always carry 2 trekking poles - multiple uses: tarp pole, self-defence, 3rd leg, ground tester, first aid (limb splint), flag pole (bandanna) signalling..etc

wanderingprepper: Now I need to upgrade from the plastic tarps! That's definitely high on the list. What configurations do you recommend for your typical walmart 8x10 plastic tarp?

ColoradoCamper: Any of these configurations should work with the plastic tarps. The main thing with them is to not pitch them super tight, because you can rip the grommets out if you try to put too much tension on them.

ColoradoCamper: To control bugs, I either camp up high where the temperatures keep the mosquitoes down at night or I use the Outdoor Research Bug Bivy, which you can see in my "Overnighter at Ceran St. Vrain" video. If I am expecting it to be very buggy (such as camping near beaver ponds), I will probably opt for a tent.

ColoradoCamper: Yes, I'll try to work on that. Thank you for the feedback!

AdirondackBadger: This was an outstanding demonstration and going in my favorites. Thank you for posting.

longshotkdb: The wing set up is a personal fav. I like to pitch it tight like that so the crease channels rain water.

wesleypipes237: How much rope/line/cordage do you carry with you when you go on a hike to accommodate the variety of tarp configurations? What type do you prefer? For tarp camping do you have a preferred way to control bugs?

ColoradoCamper: I carry six 10-ft guylines and ten 2-ft pieces for short guylines and prusiks, so 80ft and that's all Kelty triptease, which is nice because it reflects headlamp light. I rarely use it all, but I like to have it in case I really need to batten the tarp down for wind. I also sometimes carry an additional 20ft length for using as a ridgeline, like in this video, but only if I know trees will be around.

ColoradoCamper: Glad the video helped you. In fact the dog has his own pack, so he can carry some water and food. I need to do a video on it, it's awesome.

ColoradoCamper: Thanks for watching!
