Before anyone asks....yes these are good to use as liners under the tent (just be aware of the dimensions of the tent to the tarp)

Many uses for tarps. I'll list a few off the top of my head:

1. Car/Trunk liner.

If you drive a car use it to line the back seat/trunk so if you're moving anything dirty or landscap stuff like soil it'll catch most of the dirt


2. Tent ground cover

As someone mentioned already it


3. Rain cover/sun shade

Combine with #2 you can keep your tent from deteriorating quicker from the harshes of the UV rays. Or increase rain protection. When outside on a sunny day you can tie some paracord to the tarp and have a sun shade shelter. You can also do this if you have a hiking stick or two hiking sticks or found sticks on the ground. I recommend you download the Youtube video if you have a smartphone or PDA/tablet/laptop.




4. Collect rain water

If used as a hanging rain cover you could make some water collection system like what Hennesay Hammocks has here https://hennessyhammock.com/products/hh ... ner-system which will aid in you staying outdoors longer or if you're away from a water source. Carrying a water bag like the MSR Dromeray bags (comes in 2L to 10L) and are light to carry. Or dig a hole and have the water collect below.


5. Make a shelter or emergency shelter

Watch video in #3 and/or watch this.





Just add a roll of cordage and you're good to go. I recommend paracord but you don't have to buy brand new if you want to save some money and not going hardcore with it. A place that sells used 30ft military paracord is Creative Outdoors near Hwy 7/Leslie St in the GTA. That is good for general purpose use. Now if you buy new paracord then you would expect it to go the full rating (ie. 550 paracord is rated at 550lbs). I recommend everyone have a tarp or two handy for EDC/outdoors/beach/work/etc. 6ft x 8ft is a good general purpose size as well as 8ft x 10ft tho I go with 6ft x 8ft for size/weight/bulk savings. Good knowledge to know and practice from time to time.

You can download the Youtube videos by copying the Youtube link and posting it here https://onlinevideoconverter.pro/en4/ or you can pick any other sites here https://www.google.com/search?client=fi ... convertoer .

Great timing...I had just bought the linked one above. They are Silver in colour and are pretty decent heavy duty quality for outdoor stuff if you want/need that.
Will go in for a price adjustment.

You might also want to get kit to make grommets.

Here's something you didn't suggest what to do with tarps. Make custom bags with it. They are very easy to cut and actually easy to sew as well. Get out those sewing machines and customize sew bags for everything. Choose the thickness depending on the need/application.

The one I linked to is pretty heavy duty.
