Session – Tarps and Knots
A session dedicated to the tarp.
We will use both standard 3×3 tarps and various 2.7×3, 2×3 etc.. tarps to build various different shelters suitable for different weather conditions and sleeping configurations.
We will look at the knots and hitches most useful when constructing tarp shelters.
We will address at least the following designs:
Ridge line between trees
– A frame
– Lean to
– Hammock configuration
– A frame with poles
– Part A frame tarp/tent with poles
– Hex tarp/tent with pole.
Taut tarp hitch

End loops – bowline or figure 8 or overhand.
If you want to bring your own tarp and poles for practice that will be good.
