A tarp erected with my car 2


When we attended the Bushcraft Show last month we took a gazebo.  Whilst it was reasonably waterproof it was entirely un-windproof  and not very bushcrafty, so I’ve been thinking of doing something different for the Wilderness Gathering.  So yesterday, armed with a few bolts and brackets, I went to the camp and cut down some of the ash which needs to be thinned and came up with the rig in the photo below.

I slid a pole under the roof bars on my car and fastened a tarp to it.  I attached the other end of the tarp to another pole and sat this in 2 brackets attached to tripods.  Only 2 legs of the tripods are poles, the third is paracord to give some tension.

I think it should work!
