I haven't been active in the forums for a while, so maybe this has been covered, but I'm interested in hearing people's experience if they've pitched their Clark on the ground.
I walked across Spain last year (for the second time) and plan on going again this year to walk perhaps from Amsterdam. There are a lot of forests on the Pelgrimspad trail, but not so many on the Spanish trail. I only carry about 14.5 pounds, so the Clark will take up a huge portion of my weight -- but I'd sure love to try it.
I walk with Pacer Poles, which could be used on the ends.
Anyone had any real experience pitching the Clark on the ground?
