ANCHORS

Wanda Warmlite needs only three pegs to stand proud atop the windswept moor. Two at the front and one at the rear. With this few, I think it prudent to invest in anchors that do just that; anchor Windswept Wanda. My old North Face Golden Nails are now quite ancient and a little bent. The tent relies totally on three pegs to hold it up and the old hollow nails just are not up to it.

So I nip over to Bearded Git on the Web's excellent site and click on his link to Clamcleats and order up a few titanium Tornado tentpegs and a trial pack of 2mm Dyneema line with Line-Locks . I will attach these to the top of the rear pole to give me bomb proof stability.


With all this snow about, it's too cold to seam-seal the tent today. Ideally I need a nice warm weekend - anyone out there who works at the Met office? Can you fix it for me?

  2. Hi Alan

    Please let me know how good the customer-service is at ClamCleats - I've had a few e-chats with them about their products, but I haven't actually ordered anything yet.

    Cheers,

  3. Hello Oh Great Beardy One!

    In a word - excellent. The pegs and lines arrived this morning. All very efficient, and helpful over the phone as well.

    Thank you for your excellent link.
