FW: [pct-l] Rigging a Tyvek tarp

I haven't used Tyvek, but a Semi Pyramid type tent has all four 
corners close to the ground and only one raised point.  I worked well 
for me last summer when I used polyethylene (sp) for my tarp (that's 
the cheap plastic stuff).  I've only used it in moderately windy 
conditions, but it held up great then.  A 9x9 tarp can be pitched wide 
enough for two campers with about 4.5 feet of headroom with all four 
sides touching the ground.  If you, or anyone else, is interested I'll 
can scan in the plans I have for various semi pyramid configurations. 
 It is a truly versatile configuration.

Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine
