    That Lake Powell picture is just fantastic – the earth-toned landscape provides a nice palette for the color of your DIY hammocks and the poly rope on your tensile stand. Good composition!

    If I may – I have a question about the tensile stand. I made one, and set it up in a nearly field. I experienced a problem where the steel rings kept sliding off the top of the rebar stakes, as it was drawn upwards by the strut. Is there a specific angle to put the rebar stakes in that is more successful (say 45°)? I think mine were about 60°, and I didn’t have the energy to remove/repound them.

    I just picked up some corkscrew stakes from Lowes: http://www.lowes.com/pd_263145-81227-ANCFRS8-ORG-L_0__, and am going to try them out this weekend. They’re rated at 125lb. I think they’ll be easier to place, certainly, and safer for the Camporees – Scouts never look where they’re walking (no news to you), and rebar would be especially invisible.

    I’ll let you know if it’s successful – I’ll have 3 hammocks up this weekend – including one holding me, at 250lb+…
