Ninja shelter video

I just thought that I would show a quick useful shelter option for those of you that travel light, travel fast or are on the run.  I use it almost exclusively now and I thought that I would share it with you.

Enjoy the video, if you have not yet seen my other videos follow the link I have to the left and check them out.  Thanks for stopping by.  NM

  3. Like the tip on the 550 knotted cord at each grommet for set-up flexibility. Now a follower after seeing the video via the TEOTWAWKI blog.

    It is expensive but worth it. That, however was not the intent of the video. You can make that shelter with almost anything. You can even use a large trash bag if you tie it with an "indian button" IE: a small rock and a girth hitch.

  5. Steve sent you the picture of my son in the shelter. He wanted to go back to the forest preserve yesterday to practice making the shelter "I can make by myself". He also asked if he could sleep under it instead of his hammock next time we go camping. Thanks again. Brian

  10. Shelter can be as basic as a heavy duty garbage bag to preserve rain and snow off of your clothing. But for a stronger shelter, your auto or truck is going to be the initial factor readily available. Use a tarp to add living space outdoors and quite small folding chairs or stools for extra seating.

  11. had difficulty duplicating it with a 6 x 8 tarp. Seems to work best with a square tarp such as yours. Like the idea however,
