change in plans
I want to say thank you to Alamosa and everyone else who contributes to these posts.
I was out at HD today and purchased materials to make a turtledog stand for car camping and backyard set ups when I came across this post. This simple solution has some benefits over the tripod design that now have me rethinking my direction. I really like the nested configuration for transport as well as the information shared in the stake boom thread.
I may have missed a portion of this post but, has anyone considered using aluminum square stock for the stake extension? I was picturing drilling the 45 degree stake holes being easier and also thinking of drilling a perpendicular hole in the other end to provide an anchor shackle which the slings would be attached to.
