In my experience, tarps with caternary ridge lines have only one best angle for the sides to spread. Any other angle runs into problems with the sides going slack. I think the flat tarps with ridge reinforcement (like the MacCat tarps) solve most of the problem that...

  • I don't know the specifics of this situation, but knowing that BSA endorses Leave No Trace, I would imagine the "trees" were cut down for some other purpose (thinning?) and saved for various activities related to the Pioneering merit badge. That's the one that uses ropes and timbers to construct towers, furniture and other stuff. I won't say that it's impossible that someone cut...

  • When I look at pictures of the hammocks some of you are making, they look very much like pea pods; they wrap around you and almost come back together at the opening.
