Let me tell you something about my new
thermo-tarp from Bushmen Travel Gear. First of all it’s 3×3 meters tarp. 2 liters transportation sack is equipped with handles on the side and on the bottom. Weight about 750 grams. Time to open it. It’s made of polyester rip-stop fabric. Characteristic, durable, triple stitching, special loops that spread the force. And the most important – insulation layer.
UPV 50+ Enforced corners of course. Let’s use it live. This is 10m cord by Bushmen. We’ll attach it to the loop and around the tree. Use the knots that are strong, but easy to untie in the same time, like mooring knot, or flag knot Remember, you can use all you have in your surrounding as an attachment points. Use roots, sticks, walking sticks, you can even use a stone. That’s the moment when you can feel really offline, just you and the nature. The last step. Let me show you how to make a tensioner. Make a slip knot. like this. Put the look through and tie the loop. that’s it The knot works. Pull the cord in the loop to tension the cord. And in this way you have an insulation from the ground, you’ve got a windshield, you’ve got a roof against the rain. Now we should make some bed to lay on It. I’m protecetd from three sides. I’m using my backpack as a pillow. I’m well protected from the ground. There is even some space for my companion. Come on, come my friend. He knows where is better sleep. By. Cave is a forgotten, but very good place to stay for a night. To use the thermo-tarp as a hammock you need a rope or Bushmen tree huggers. I will use them. First of all find a hole in the rock or other fixing point. Like this. Fold the tarp into two, then wrap one end of the tarp and prepare an end like this. Now, make a loop on the tree hugger just like this and put the end of the tarp through. Now, just squeeze the loop tide,
so the end will not slip over. And now, go to the other side. Tie the loop hard. Check it same way as the first time. It’s a beautiful cave, isn’t it? But be aware of the water
and moisture of the walls. Let them drop on the ground, not into your hammock. Now just one last check and get in. Cool! Time to contemplate beauty of the cave ceiling. There is a stable temperature in the cave and no wind in fact. During the winter is relatively warm,
in the summer it’s a nice cool place. In such an emergency situation Thermo-tarp can serve as a rescue bag. First of all find a flat dry part of the cave. Then make a mattress out of the plants. Put as much of them as you can make
an isolation between you and the ground. and if possible put your legs into your backpack. You will make a warm foot box that way. The last point. Wrap the tarp around your head and try to relax it’s a good place to hide from a bed whether. Folding the tarp. First,
just fold it once. and again just like this and again Now, just put it on the ground. Flatten it letting the air go away. and fold it twice first and second time. Let the all left air go out this way. And just roll it. Remember to start from the most folded end and roll it to the most open end If you make it an opposite way you will trap the air in. Put it in the compression sack. See you next time.
