Besides I ...

Re: Knots for steel and tarp shelter...

I am doing the exact same shade/rope method. How long are you per-cutting your rope sections? I was thinking 20ft would be a safe length to do the trucker's hitch. Giving it a test run on thursday. I would advise not pre-cutting your rope before putting up your structure for testing. Set up your st...

Re: Knots for steel and tarp shelter...

I second the use of the trucker's hitch it's outstanding method to secure just about anything. One tip is to use a steel ring or a carabiner at the ground anchor point to avoid tearing up your rope.

Re: Ultralight backpacking camp stove

I'm camping solo this year too so only cooking for one. I have one those stoves I use it for hiking,it's way to small for BM. I picked this one up on ebay too a few weeks ago and have tested it. It's going to be great for BM much more stable, but still packs small. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Picnic-Cam...

Re: Rate My Monkey Hut Plan!

More great tips thanks maladroit! You must be reading my mind I was thinking of gorilla tape reinforcement at the grommets too, I love the stuff, keep about 3 feet of it wrapped around an old gift card in my pocket always.
The tarp I'm getting also has a sewn in poly bolt rope around the edge.

Re: Rate My Monkey Hut Plan!

Thanks maladroit! 36" rebar sounds good will use it for the guyout stakes. The bungee cord I plan to use is pretty stretchy and will have plenty of give. I'm thinking of the additional grommets more for the rib edges of the structure to give it a little more stability. I could forgo the ones for the...

Re: Rate My Monkey Hut Plan!

Thanks Trilobyte! These tarps come with grommets every 18" and I think adding one in between them will give it a more taught pitch. I will be using brass grommets set with a hammer and die.

Re: Rate My Monkey Hut Plan!

The MH is going to be 15 ft long, I plan on using the standard two 10' ribs joined at the spine and a 12 ft wide floor plan. I gestimate the height of the hut around 6'-7'.
