DIY Whelen lean-to

Post by YoungBlacksmith » Mon Nov 12, 2018 5:04 pm

Over on BCUSA I saw Seeker's DIY Whelen lean-to build thread: ... ng.136777/

And so I had to make one myself! The build is on the end of the thread. TSC is/was clearing out 12' x 20' tarps for $10, and I already had the tape and grommets. All it took was about three hours, and now I have a classic camping style tent, lighter weight, and cheap as dirt.

Pretty cool. Especially the price.
