    I did it on my thru. you may have to plan on some long cords for tie offs though. Also it helps to carry a few light weight screw in hooks to anchor into wooden tent platforms & a hiking stick or trcking poles can come in handy.

    Carry extra line and tie off to bushes or rocks around the tent platforms - no problem with a little ingenuity.

    I sure hope you have a bug bivy for that tarp cuz if you don't you will be eaten alive. If your going SOBO through Maine in June, bug protection is a must or you will be driven out of the woods.

    Same deal, l used a tarptent there in June and it worked fine. A little ingenuity, yes. Major problems, no.
