7469Yee ole flappin tarp question
- Dec 7, 2004Okay I know we have covered this but I recently had a tarp flapping
issue even though I thought I was using a workable solution from some
of the suggetions previously offered on this topic. Now I'm stumped.
Last weekend I set up my hh with the tarp is came with at the lake.
I was doing a weekend kayak paddle with some fellow paddlers. We set
up on a hill top in an organized campsite (they had a pop up trailer
that needed a flat space to park)
Let me set the scene - Rain off and on the whole afternoon, evening,
and misty through the night. Fog from the lake rolled in after dark
and the wind was probably around 10 mph off and on during the night.
I used some small bungies I had in my truck for the tarp anticipating
the wind. I had three bungies (2 on each side point and 1 on one end
of the ridgeline) I didn't have a 4th bungee for the other ridgeline
so just attached it as usual.
While this worked beter than just using the ropes it still flapped
enough to annoy me. What am I doing wrong? I guess I don't get it.
