I am going camping this weekend (ITOLS training with the Scouts). If there are no trees around, I will still be off the ground and sleeping in comfort.
I am having trouble posting pictures to the post but did upload them onto the site.
I found some rebar protectors that I used for the feet end of the posts. These worked great to keep the posts from entering the ground.
I also found some rebar stakes with an eye welded to them which I will be able to attach a second anchor using a dog-bone or continuous loop to secure the main anchor.
HangDenAround, my pleasure on the information and welcome to the forum. I lived in Parker for about 20 years (until 2008). If you run into any of my old pals from Troop 16, say hello for me.
Obmit, glad it helped.
