Braiding a Tarp Shelter Ridgeline with Paracord
Welcome back to my Heat Reflective Survival Tarp Shelter series. In part two of the series, I show you how to braid a ridgeline using 550 Paracord.
The ridgeline serves as the primary support for holding up your tarp shelter. By spanning the ridgeline between two trees or other fixed objects, you can orient you tarp shelter as needed. Using specific knots and the eyelet we've spliced in to the paracord ridgeline you can modify the tarp shelter quickly in the field to account for wind or precipitation.
Stay tuned for parts three and four!
