No-but sometimes in order to get tarp lines strung the best way possible, a line might be in the path that some may take to or from the latrine back into camp. It is not over the actual trail to the latrine-but possibly in the path that people take getting back into camp once off the latrine trail.
We do not intentionally put tarp lines over the trail leading to the latrine, unless we are travelling with bannock-it is fun to watch him clothesline himself. :-)

Kind of what i was imagining. I have been to the BWCA several times and in my experience (all men) no one made the trip to the latrine at night unless they really had to. . .if they could even find it in the dark with no glasses or contacts in.
Lines that "clothesline" me, Bogwalker can easily step over. He is grotesquely tall.
When we travel together we look like Strider and Frodo. :)"
I have to admit that having our 6'8" friend string the tarps has its advantages. For some reason however...he just can't get comfortable in the bow of a 14' canoe or in a small kayak. Even in a longer canoe the high center of gravity is a factor...no wonder he favors boats with an outboard...hmmmm...
You are never lost, late, or lagging behind if you are on an adventure.
this is what my old Baker Shelter looked like with the reflective line on it.i'm happy to say the new one has half as many tie outs. this of course does not glow on its own but reflects light,in this case from a photo flash.
I also use the Kelty Triptease Liteline. 50' at about 1oz. is pretty good for me. With a breaking point of 188lbs., that's the kind of cord I want on my trip. Great stuff! I have 100' of it and have guy lines already put together and ready to go when I'm out camping. I use it for clothes line too. I make two passes between two trees, twisting it many times. This allows me to place my clothing in between the twists. It keeps the clothing from blowing off in the wind, and I don't have to carry any clothespins. You can find this on the internet for as low as $12.00. As always, enjoy your camping!
