    I'm putting bugout bag together, and am interested in perhaps putting a stove jack in my tarp (aqua quest defender). But on the offchance that's not an option, I'd likely try using the tieouts to create a gap where stove pipe would go, or would have the titanium stove just outside the coverage...

    I'm not sure if others do this, but I've found it a quick and simple way to set up a hoochie (tarp) when hiking. I replaced all my guy lines on my hoochie with thin shock cord and use toggles to secure it. The hoochie. Everything rolled up inside it. 1st end of ridgeline has a permanent...

    So about a year ago I picked up about 6-8 yrds of MARPAT camo that I thought was ultralight silnylon. I plan to make an ultralight pack cover. Tarp and a few other things. I noticed that this seems to be 2nds from whoever makes the this fabric. It seems to be ripstop but it's not water proof...

    So, it was another brilliant weekend out... The weather was excellent and the fish was 'a-plenty'... My Bivi, once again, out performed itself and everything went well... :D: Something that is becoming very apparent by going to the same spot, over and over again is that the wood resource is...

    I have rediscovered a tarp that I had put up in some old camping/prep supplies and want to customize a widely effective and highly adaptable "kit".

    I believe tarps and hammocks are more versatile than a tent but I was wondering others opinions. Like in summer I know it's fine, but in bad weather like Raina DNA snow etc what do you guys think? I'm also debating what color tarp to buy and what the color advantages would be. Like if I had...

    OK, I have finally decided to make the move to a tarp shelter only. Also picked up a light weight sleeping bag. Should be a very light pack now. :cool: Any advice? My trip won't be until June so I;m not worried about freezing or anything.

It's "meant" to be strung up between two trees with two corners anchored to the ground over a hammock but I want to use it with a single pole and three points anchored to the ground. I want to be able to use it to get...

    O.k. for all the tarp, open air campers out there. How do you avoid the slugs and snails from crawling all over you at night? I like the bed role camping idea, but dont want the sluggy buddies all over me. so what is the trick? Or is it not even an issue? Please explain this to me, and I will...

    Survival situations require shelter as one of the big THREE! Shelter is not always easy to come by especially after being forced to hike into the darkness. Would a useful bug out/ survival kit piece be an ultralite tent? All those who may say that it is easier to whack up a quick tarp shelter...
