The first setup we love is the A-frame setup. It’s fast and it’s efficient. This standard way of pitching your tarp and will give you basic protection from the elements. If you set up you tarp in this way you will be protected from light to medium rainfall. Depending on if you let the sides go to the ground or if you keep them high. I usually keep the edges high so I can enjoy the view better.
This setup is another favorite because it can be pitched even if there are no trees available. All you need is a (walking) stick of the correct length and you’re basically half way through. This setup will protect you more from the weather as it is closed on three sides.
There are millions of more ways to pitch a tarp, which one is your favorite?
