    For the Tensa stand you donít necessarily need a stake in the ground if there is something of sufficient weight along the pad to tie off to. Even if itís just your car/motorcycle.

    Any idea of the weight required - I'm thinking a grain sack of rocks on each end will do it.

    The other thought is when I put up rebar target stands I can take an Electric battery powered drill and a long masonary carbide bit and put in Pilot hole then tap in the rebar (which is pointed)
    of course it would need to be at an angle to resist pulling out the teather of the Tensa.

    This is a "how deep is a hole" or "how tall is a stick" question. Tension on the foot guyline is always going to be well below the weight of the hammock occupant and any head-end counterweight used, but it approaches zero as said occupant shifts weight footward toward the dreaded taco point. At first we guesstimated that 40lbs was enough for a 150-lb user, but heard from a few users who prefer a steeper headward lean on the stand that that isn't enough. Someday I'm going to try to anchor to a single can of soda as a stunt (would be pretty easy with a helper on the foot end to coach me how to shift weight to near zero), and hope the wind doesn't turn...

    I'd think a piton and climbers hammer is all you'd need.
