We put in a close up of the tent rig especially for LBR Drewster. He's quite the camper, too, and we have been swapping various "camp stories" in the past few weeks. Prior to this trip, we bought two more 2x2's. Each of them has a 10 penny nail in the top. The nails fit through a tarp grommet. In this manner, it's posisble to "fly" the tarp much like a sailboat sail is "flown" from the mast and boom of a sailboat. It makes for a really stout, taut tarp rig that should be able to withstand today thunderstorm winds. "Should" is the key word here.
Note the small sign we made for this trip. It's at the bottom of the post by Susun's feet. It's a whole lot friendlier than the previous sign we had--the one that said, "I buy poodle pelts."
