It not only provides a great summary of many common tarp shelter designs, but also shows several more complex shelters and structures for larger sized tarps(changing/shower room, bivvy bags, mountain pods, etc) . All designs provide numbered corners and support points, instructions for the folds, and a "final result". That said, most of the designs are pretty self explanatory. Many of these designs could be fun to try out while camping.

The simpler designs are mirrored here in a more readable format:

What gets me is,
Six people thanked you for post.
One person thanked me.

Is it the name? Fancy logo?
You have two now, I felt bad for you. :D:
I figured people had me on "ignore".
Nice to know there's three people that don't.
