I took a weekend trip down near Poplar Bluff, Missouri to hang with a few guys from the Bushcraft USA forum. It was a quite a good trip. The new BCUSA tarp survived a couple rain showers, including a fairly heavy down pour, in the A frame configuration without any issues. I never did make up the self-tensioning
guy lines like I planned. They are on the list of things along with some snakeskins for the tarp.
