The wife and I are planning an adventure in prospecting in New Mexico this month. We have been searching for a canopy of some kind to take along as we are both aged and will need some shade. I cannot understand why a canopy costs more than a good tent. It makes no sense. I had a brain fart this morning. 4 ten foot lengths of pvc pipe, a cheap tarp, cheap tent stakes and paracord.
Has anyone tried this method?
