In this Badge Bit you will cover cargo with a tarp and show that it stayed dry during transit.
Tarp stands for tarpaulin! Weather on the open road can be unpredictable. A good way to keep your cargo dry during transport is to throw a tarp on it. Be sure to account for road speeds and the resulting angles of rainfall.
To complete this BB minimum requirements are:
-cover cargo with a tarp
-secure the tarp well enough to handle a 100 mile drive at highway speeds
-the tarp remained secure during transit
-cargo remained dry during transit
To document your completion of the BB, provide proof of the following as pics or video (less than two minutes):
-show the uncovered cargo
-show covered cargo and how the tarp is secured on all sides
-show the cargo having been transported to an obviously different location with tarp still secure
-if it rained during your travel, show the cargo is dry upon arrival
-if it didn't rain during your trip, that's ok. The certifier will assess how well your tarp appears to be secured against the elements
