Over the last week, I was able to put a new roof over my head. I spent two days cutting, and sewing and getting all sorts of tangled in silnylon. After all the work and frustration, I think I got something I can sleep under and stay mostly dry if the rain is falling. My new tarp is about eight feet long, and six feet wide. With its guy lines and stakes, it weighs 14 oz.  This makes it not the lightest tarp out there, but it sure offers plenty of room.  I'm hoping to take it out for an over nighter in the rain later this week to find out if I will want to use it as my primary shelter for the trip. Hope it doesn't fall over in the wind

45 days. AHh!
