|Poncho on Colorado Trail in 2002|
|Trapezoidal rig on CT in 2002|
Within the last couple weeks, I purchased a slightly burlier cuben fiber (CT2K.08) and went ahead and built a newer version, increasing the dimensions to approximately 70" by 104", which requires 4 and 1/3 yards of fabric (still rather pricey, even on sale). So far I'm happy with the finished 5 oz. product, which seems to allow enough space to be set up in the protective trapezoidal shelter configuration that I fondly remember. The Roy Robinson poncho tarp-tent is a good beginner's sewing project that I would highly recommend.
