Customer Project: Tims Tarp

by Tim T

Here is the information for the Tim's Tarp I created. Being a taller person  I wanted a tarp that:

o Set up quickly and easily especially in bad weather
o Works in all seasons
o Is at least 11' long when completely extended on the ridgeline so hammock ends are
completely covered from the elements when stretched out o I can walk/stand under relatively easily
o I can stack 2 hammocks (possibly 3) underneath
o Has pullouts on the sides and ends to create decent side room
o Can become a lean-to style tarp with considerable room underneath
o Is versatile to set up in multiple fashions
o Has versatile end doors
o Has a collapsable ridgeline organizer that can be left in the tarp when stuffed in the stuff sack
o Has tie off loops on the inside of the tarp at the ridge line and tie out areas for attaching end doors and any miscellaneous lines to
o Has matching hammock and tarp double sided stuff sacks

After doing a lot of research I was unable to find a tarp out there I was looking for especially with the height and versatility I wanted so I decided to make Tim's Tarp. Plus, I just thought it would be a great DIY project!  Special thanks to Justin for all of help with questions, getting me the materials I needed and the idea about creating the tarp with two tones!
