Fairly new to tarp camping.

A frame with back side closed.

Stake all four corners, By now I know how much spacing works well enough. I just put the hiking pole on one end and adjust the height base on the pitch. Works well as long as the wind is NOT blowing in. If wind is blowing in I will Re pitch 90degrees. I also like pitching open end close to a bush. This blocks stray winds and possible water. This can technically work with 5 stakes and a tent pole, but I like a bit more security of stake in the middle too. So 9 stakes plus a hiking pole.
