TYVEK for tent footprints, bivys, tarp shelters

I have become interested in using the material Tyvek to make backpacking gear. While you can buy smaller pieces of the material, using the large rolls that building supply places have works better since the width is 9 feet, eliminating the need for some taping/gluing. The problem is the rolls are 9 ft by 100 feet. So I would like to find a few other people interested in splitting a roll. The cost of a roll is somewhere around $130 plus tax, I believe. My email is hiker1096@gmail.com. Oh, the advantages of the material are waterproof but breathing, light weight but very tough.
