Lot's of good ideas in this thread.


Personally, I use 12'x12' or 12' x 20' tarps. For poles, I favor buying six 2"x2" x 8' square studs at Home Depot. Cut four of those to a six foot length, and use those to stake out the corners of the tarps. The 8' lngeth are used to form a ridgeline.


It's easy to lash these poles together and keep them together, and often the tarps can be erected in alternate ways that don't need all the poles.


You could also use just two poles forming and ridgeline, and stake out the sides of the tarp.



I like the idea of using PVC pipe along with couplings so that the poles can be shorter. I'll have to experiment with that approach.
