Can I leave it up and ride all day. With out it blowing away, or riping.
    Do you think 1/2 off would work?

    Ya, That seems like a good price.
    It should work fine for ya and with the knots I'll show ya, it'll stay up as long as you use two lines/pole, good pegs and the material/tie out points are good.

    Gary, I can't vouch for the tear/rip strength of the Kelty's material/tie out points, seeing as I've never owned one, but the silicone impregnated nylon does have superior rip/tear resistance compared to the material the Kelty is made of.
    Mine has survived 70mph winds and a heavy deluge when a wicked Thunder Cell blew in at one campground I was at, along the Mississippi

    Although I do carry a length of rope, I use that mainly for hoisting a food bag in bear territory.

    I bring along roughly 150' of cord, cut up into mainly 2 lengths
    I use this [ame="http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0045DX7JE/ref=asc_df_B0045DX7JE2360382/?tag=becomcom00552-20&creative=394997&creativeASIN=B0045DX7JE&linkCod e=asn"]braided nylon cord[/ame], cut up into a bunch of roughly 12' lengths and singe the ends so they don't unravel. Some of these I will cut in half to tie the tarp off to a nearby tree etc. You can always tie a couple together to give you a longer length if needed. I do however, carry a couple that are 25' long
    Cheap, compact and strong enough for the task. Make sure it is the NYLON variety though and not the Poly Cord, which won't stand up.
    I stuff the cord into the tarp's stuff sac, along with the tarp.

    The lower loop is located alongside of Lee Creek and has some heavily wooded, fairly unattractive sites. We opted to stay in the 'upper loop', where the sites are set among a less dense stand of woods

    Things probably change over time. In 08/2018 I camped here for one night. Stayed in the lower loop, site #2. Thought the site was awesome. Right next to the creek. Kept the beer cold and the sounds of the water was music in the evening. The lower loop was fairly empty, while the big RV rigs seemed to occupy the upper loop.
