I never had a set way of how to use my tarp. I made considerations for trees, land features, available materials and weather to help me decide how to set up my house. I'm a non-conformist so my shelter never resembled any of the patented designs here. But as Benjy says, it does demonstrate the "versatility" of ye olde tarpaulin.
For under $15 you can have a lightweight, durable, wind and rain shedding cover. A couple more dollars for twine and you're set. Want to stay for awhile and "home bum it"? Forget the twine, buy wire and make boobytraps with the leftover wire.
The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
Buy Matt a Beer
$75.00 of $75.00
Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
Feed Matt a Burrito
$100.00 of $100.00
Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
Finance the Shopping Cart
$115.00 of $200.00
Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
