    Yeah I'll definitely be glad to get back to running things that don't need tarps. Not looking forward to tarping something that large ever again, unless I have something that fits a little better. Then again I do suppose there aren't many things that would fit something that size. But TJP who loaded next to me had some machine tarps that fit like a glove. I suppose they do those a lot tho. Granted he also lucked out and was a shade smaller.

    Which apparently I am supposed to pick up some sort of cat afterwards at Illinois sometime somewhere.

    Ive had my share of them. If I can get help, it’s easy to put one tarp on back wrapped around. Like the back side is the top. Then one around front. Then one long over top

    Can’t find last pic sorry

    Unfortunately mine wouldn't even be big enough to pull that off. I get what your saying tho, that makes sense.

    Standard lumber tarps tho, 8ft drops. Definitely don't make it easy. I tried a few ways with the first. The best possible solution that I worked out with one I had and the particular size of it. Ideally with these tarps. Was one over the back and the sides. One over each side which actually covered the full length and the top, threw the flap over the other side so it would lock together better. And then one on the front on top of all the others just to hold it all together.

    Hey it survived Wyoming.
