This being said, question #2, are there poles for porch mode for these winter tarps or am I limited to my trekking poles? I don't want the mod poles or whatever those are called. I just want poles that hold it up in porch mode so I can see the rain.
Tx for any help.
Sticks from the woods would work just fine.
I have some tarp tutorials for some insight if you that is something that may interest you.....https://www.youtube.com/playlist?lis...r4JzQgQ_iyB2RU

Exciting about your thru-hike.
