8549Re: Alternative Hanging Methods?
- Mar 23, 2005For people who've used these alternative methods, how have you
staked the hammock out? I've tried the single pole, and the
inverted "V" poles. The problem I've always had was the stakes
pulling out of the ground. I tried a double stake system (the first
stake is quite long with a second stake behind it. The a line runs
from the top of the first stake to the bottom of the second one.
Used on circus tents a lot). Even these havepulled out.
How have you succeeded?
