The other day I found a website that had different ways to setup a shelter using a piece of canvas (ie diamond, etc) but I didn't bookmark it. (hate when that happens) Can someone help me with this.

Thanks

Hi, and thanks, Jeff!

Yeah, man, just go outside and mess with it. Keep in mind [and I have a few miles under my moccs to know] that finding that nice, flat spot will be hard.

That being said...I lived many days on my own under a square fly rigged either as a lean-to or 'diamond.' Just go do it and be prepared to change it....
