Re: 26x8 Kodiak Canvas Tent

.That's a Kodiak "cabin" tent. Most burners use the "flex-bow" type as theses are much more able to handle the winds.........FYI

This thread : viewtopic.php?f=277&t=80373 has a number of folks saying the "stock" tent pegs were fine on the playa. Also discusses shade options.

ZIGZAG, from what I've read , the lags don't work that well (compared to re-bar) for slipping the pvc over. They definitely work better for tie-downs though.

Re: Double Wide Monkey Hut ??

And why is it you don't want to just extend the length/add an additional piece to the ribs ? This would require a different size tarp but would maintain the MH's "tensegrity".

Re: Anyone have feedback on a Kodiak 10x10 ft tent?

I've been in nylon tents in the wind and they were quite NOISY. Are the canvas tents much (any ?) quieter ? Also, regarding tying the poles to a T-post or staking them down.....does that ruin the "wind dynamics" of the tent being able to bounce/sway with the wind ?

LAG SCREWS and MONKEY HUTS...

Most monkey hut tutorials say to use 2' rebar pounded 1/2 way into the ground for the arch "footings/anchors". Has anyone tried using lag screws instead. Say, 1/2x18" drilled half way in ? Also, is there a better source for the lags than :the Fastenersuperstore dot com ? (1/2x18" $2 each +/-) ? Than...

Re: structural integrity of compact emt shade structure

Maybe consider a Redneck Roof Rack. Get 2 "pool noodles", run a 1" "cam strap" thru each noodle and the (slightly opened) windows.
Get er done !!

Re: How To Alter a Store Bought Poly-Vinyl Tarp

I admire your craftsmanship....but......wouldn't an easier way to be to just measure your store-bought tarp and then just cut the EMT to match it's size ? I'm SOOOOOO much better with a hacksaw then I am with a sewing machine !

Whichever wrench you used, were you able to run it off a 400 watt inverter ? Or was it battery powered ? Lastly, was one battery pack enough ?

EMT Monkey Hut...?

Has anyone ever tried building a monkey hut with EMT rather than PVC ? I realize you'd need a conduit bender to pre-form the arches but I was wondering if the PVC's flexibility was a necessary ingredient for the huts ability to withstand high winds ??
