Step 1: Get Your Materials
First go diggin in the recycling and get yourself some plastic bottles
then throw it in the vise and cut off the top of it w a hacksaw
Step 3: Drill Your Cap
put a nice big hole in it
Step 5: Cut the Bag
cut your heavy duty garbage bag along 2 seams so it opens twice as big along it's length
Step 6: Tape the Bag
put a piece of clear tape on 1 side of the back to reinforce it. make it point in the direction of the main vector of force when you're stringing up your tent to trees or stakes
Step 7: Make a Gromet
put the threads of your cap under the bag
Step 8: Finish the Grommet
then screw the cap on and stab it w some scissors. now you can tie a string thru the cap and yank on it w/o tearing up the bag
Step 9: String Her Up!
add an under tarp to stay off the wet ground and string your tent up from 6 places. 2 along the center line and four on each corner
Step 10: Fold Up for Packing
roll it up and wrap it w one of the strings and it stows away small
