My love of tents, tarps in wind, and Camping

Hello Campers!  I've become an avid tent and tarp self appointed 'tester' in my own mind and in my big back yard (near Boulder, Colorado, New Mexico, and New England)  Winds kick up and thrash my DYI tarps...but I learn!  I love sleeping outside for weeks at a time, and have been experimenting with my (so far) 5 tents and variety of tarps in different situations.  I've built a wooden platform in my field, and made a conduit 'hoop house' to support a big tarp ....I need help tho with the tarp situation!  I like the challenges presented between what I think I want and what is.  Conversation welcome.  

I love camping!

I miss my truck! HA

You sound pretty creative with  your setup's! That's the thing about tarp camping I love the most! You get to set things up the way YOU want it and on the weather conditions.
