So, I was going to hang yesterday...
But I ended up tenting it because the wind was too strong.
I had set up my hammock and tarp and then went to eat dinner around the campfire. About 20 minutes later I heard a loud SNAP, and saw that my tarp had come up on one side and was over the ridgeline. I pulled it back over and went looking for my stake.
THE WIND BENT MY STAKE IN HALF!!!
I decided to try it again. I got a new stake and staked down my tarp again. Another 20 minutes passed. SNAP! I looked over again, and my tarp had once again come off the stake. I then made the decision to tear it all down. One stake was still in the ground, but the wind had flung the other one about 20 feet away from my site!
How do you guys deal with bad wind like that?
