I’m a big fan of sleeping under a tarp when I’m in the woods and my preferred way to set up my tarp is in an open sided tarp configuration.
I find that it gives me the connection with the natural world that I enjoy so much. So here’s a video showing you how to go about setting up a tarp in that particular way.
An open sided tarp configuration is one of a few different configurations we look at on our on our 2 Day Bushcraft Course and 5 Day Bushcraft Course as well as on the IOL Bushcraft Competency Award and Diploma.
You can see photos from those courses, as well as all of our other courses on our Facebook page.
