Jar Jar Binks of the TarpSide

Yesterday I failed miserably to get the hand of the Mountain Laurel Design Spinntex Mid tarp-tipi that Dawn has given me. Helped by the extendable pole that I got from Darren for winning the last caption competition, I needed to head back to the drawing board.

This is what it should look like. I'll need to sort the peg ties. It was a nice afternoon in Duthie Park anyway.

The 'proper picture' looks very pretty Duncan - so what will you use this for?

Is it a party tent for the next Blogger's Meet?

Sadly the 'proper' picture features a pole only 3' tall (split into 2 sections), which the wind promptly blew down.
