So, I'm wacthing a west Texas herping video when the Youtuber comes across a line of Aphonopelma slings leaving the nest. The youtuber just calls them spiders, as he's mostly into herps, but they are clearly Tarantula slings. Did a little research to make sure I knew what I was talking about and it confirmed this the normal way for Aphonopelma slings to leave their nest. Pretty cool to watch - at the 20:05 mark for those who don't want to watch the whole video (but if you are into herps his videos are quite good).
