Meanwhile, the book includes a chapter on how to minimize one's exposure to ticks and the diseases they can transmit. This topic is a concern for many hikers and campers, whether or not they are sleeping under a tarp and using a Spitfire or Net-Tent. As such, I think this is a critically important chapter for Appalachian Trail hikers, or other people who frequent the beautiful woods of the eastern states. Even if you have no interest in tarp camping, I consider the Ticks chapter essential reading for a safe and worry free trip. Our new Tarp Book contains ten times the info as the old tarp book, and far more as pertaining to tarp camping as did Trail Life. This is because I have logged many thousands of more miles of hiking and cycling trips, since I wrote the other two books.
The new book contains the following story: "During one of my thru-hikes of the AT, someone asked me where I would be camping that night. This is a commonly asked question in the late afternoons, among long-distance hikers. "I replied that I usually camp where darkness finds me, just off the trail. I said I don't need to stay at the shelters, because my tarp works so well. "To which the person asserted: "Yeah, but you're Ray Jardine." "That struck me as pretty funny, but it also got me thinking about peoples' differing mind-sets and skill levels." So I am writing this new book in order to pass along my tarp camping skills, not merely at a novice level, as with the original book, but at a more advanced level, such that everyone who reads the new book should be able to enjoy camping with a tarp with the same high degree of skill-sets, enjoyment and safety, as I do. Discover the advantages of a Ray-Way tarp for yourself.
Simplifies camping and raises it to an art form.
This book is for anyone who would like to sleep warmer and more comfortably in the wilds.
The Ray-Way tarp is simple in appearance, yet it will outperform even the most sophisticated tents in a wide variety of weather and terrain, when used according to the instructions in this book.
Ray's tarp is about a fourth the weight of even the lighter tents, and it offers at least twice the living space. Even though open all around, it is probably warmer than the tent you are currently using. Why? Because of the tarp's superior ventilation. A tent traps moisture, and this moisture saps body heat.
Here you will find information on how to select a good tarp site, how to pitch the tarp, and how the Ray-Way tarp handles rain, wind and bugs.
