You'll probably be in good shape placing your own art in deep playa, if you trailer in your container using an extra VP you may have laying around and bring your own container-moving giant forklift...

I had never drank pedialyte until I went to Mexico several years ago.

Re: Looking for tent and shade feedback

You could also reduce the strain on the aluminet by weaving the guy line through the front edge grommets, around the poles and down to the ground in line with that edge. Then just add one more line on each pole pulling straight forward, perpendicular to the first ones. Don't forget some sort of guy ...

Re: Looking for tent and shade feedback

Have you tried two guy lines on each of the outer poles? Continue the guy lines in-line with the edges of your cloth, 90 degrees to one another, that should stabilize it all you'll ever need.

Dual direction guy lining is always better than single direction, especially with freestanding poles...

Re: Looking for tent and shade feedback

Just keep it tight, it's nice and low, aluminet is light and you're more than likely going to be surrounded by windbreaks everywhere unless you're going out to walk-in camping. It'll work, and if it doesn't you just make some mods or adjustments on the fly. Happens all of the time, there will be no ...

Re: Looking for tent and shade feedback

What if you took the two poles on the door side of the tent and go all the way out to the corners, so that you have an open flat top porch with the overall clam-shell shape? You would have a lot more useful area under cover and a bigger aperture by which to watch the burning world go by, but that's ...

It seems like the best way is to have a bolt jamming it against some rebar, which raises the question of how to weld a bolt fixture on the pipe.
That's exactly how I do. But in absence of the bolt pinning the rebar, you can slip it over the rebar and guyline out to keep it from lifting.

Re: Shade structure design - feeback / advice please!

I'd just make a flat top emt. Tensegrity shade looks cool, but can be hard to get right, and usually if it fails there is no plan B. I've seen a few fail in the neighborhood after some gusts and they rarely ever came back up.
