Recently hanging at a Boy Scout Camporee using X-trestles in place of trees, I found the trestle legs sinking into the earth anywhere from two to four inches each. This caused my sweet hang to drop overnight to within a finger of the earth. Richtofla asked how this can be prevented and XexorZ came up with an interesting suggestion.
This is XexorZ’s idea:
So for all those of who may be contemplating using a bipod, tripod, X-trestle, or even an aluminum ladder, could you explain your thoughts on XexorZ’s idea or provide another way to prevent hang height loss due to soft, moist soil?
