    Apparently, maybe due to low testosterone or other lack of cajone issues, I caved into to the old maxim " If Mama ain't happy ain't nobody happy". That, and I did not build it out of treated lumber or paint it, so it was starting to look seriously ramshackle, though amazingly still fully functional. And I was wearing a hole in the yard and messing up the grass from such frequent activity and shading from tarps. Then I got the Vario and then I caved. But the main reason is probably the 1st one listed. Plus, she insisted that technically, the backyard was not my castle, and I was only a maintenance man in regard to that domain.

    Sure was a good stand though, I miss it.
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.
    Romans 8:18,21-22

    The tripods are standard turtlelady stand construction...bamboo, 2x2's, etc., with tripod lashing.

    Lots of members have shifted to the turtledog version with a hinge replacing the lashing. I like the lashing better.

    It requires a 14-16' ridgepole to properly hang the WBRR. The one in my photo is 16'.

    Well, then....You MUST go to work and maintain your yard, man.
    1) Repair any damages to woodwork/hardware.
    2) Paint the woodwork(do it for the kids, it's all about the kids).
    3) Dig out and add weedblock to small area below the "swings". About a 14X12 area sounds right. Mulch said area.
    4) Add low plants to ends of "swing" area, not front/back.
    5) Get drinks and the Lady of the Castle, 2 chairs and sit and watch the kids play.

    Your a hero and you get your stand back with a view
    Enjoy and have fun with your family, before they have fun without you
