OK, everyone knows about this pitch, but there are some variations.
When you pitch it high and wide, it is the most room you can get for one pound of shelter.
You can pitch it almost down to the ground for more protection. If you do that, side tie-outs make a lot of extra room. My tarp doesn’t have sewn-in tie-outs, so I use Sierra Designs Grip Clips.
Finally, when the wind picks up, you can pitch it low and crawl inside your bunker for the night.
