This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP Curiculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the straw badge in Homesteading

In this Badge Bit you will cover something with a tarp in such a way that it stays secure for six months. 

Tarp stands for tarpaulin! A good way to keep something safe and dry is to throw a tarp on it, but make sure to keep in mind high winds, water pockets, and snow accumulation when tarping. 

Here are some articles and video about tarps:  

-One way to tarp a wood pile 
-About tarps and covering various things


To complete this BB minimum requirements are:
-cover something with a tarp
-secure the tarp
-show the tarp is still secure six months later

To show you've completed this Badge Bit, you must:  
-post a picture of uncovered thing
-post a picture of the thing partway covered
-post pictures showing tarp on the thing and how the tarp is secured on all sides (picture of front and picture of back) with date stamp
-post a picture of the tarp still secure without intervention six months later with date stamp
-post a video of the above (less than two minutes long)
It's exactly the same and completely different as this tiny ad:
