Pegging Techniques

How to position a peg exactly where you want it to land up

Before I move onto pegging methods / techniques, and especially the “side-by-side” method one needs to know how to get the loop of the peg exactly where it needs to be

Step by step.....
Put the leaver portion of the peg on the ground so that the hook is where it must be.

Make sure it is in-line with the rope.

Make a mark at the back of the peg

p

Put the point of the peg on the mark, make sure the lever is horizontal with the groundplane and beat the hell out of the peg

SUCCESS! The hook is exactly whre it needs to be

tPegs side by side

t

Kyk hoe lekker sag daai grond is......

Although this method deviates from the principal of keeping the peg in line with the guy rope, to stop it being wiggled loose This technique works well as it splits the load over two pegs, (IE half of the original load on each peg) VIS makes the peg twice as strong...
Just keep the angle between the pegs to about 10 deg and you should be fine

Nice quick fix method if things are going wrong and you don’t have a suitably big peg...

 

LEN LOADER:  Daar is 'n gesegde onder kampeerders wat op 'n forum gesels as daar gekla word dat daar nie genoeg oor kampering gesels word nie dat "'n tentpen kan tog net op een manier ingeslaan word".  Die bogemelde metode (en daar is nog baie) het hierdie gesegde totaal verkeerd bewys.  Ek weet WilSur het ook 'n oulike metode om te keer dat 'n veerpen uit die grond trek.

Aaaa Len... daarmee moet ek saam stem, dink jy’t die pen oppi kop geslaan

In my humble opinion, rigging is the key to success.. Or failure....

But now onto my next pegging technique....

One peg behind the other

Met hierdie metoode, verwys ek na N primere pen, N secondere pen, en n secondere tou.

Die primere pen is die voorste pen, en die secondere pen is die agtese pen.

As ek hierdie metoode onplooy, dan, vir die selde werk, rig ek N secondere tou aan die paal vas.
Ek kan voel as ek so moet vas pen... as die pen so in die grond ingedrik kan word... Miskien net die laast so 150mm moet met die hammer ingedryf, dan weet ek al klaar di anker is quesbaar.

Die secondere tou gaan van die Secondere pen ook paal toe

As die primere pen los-ruk sal die secondere tou verhoed laat die heele saamestelling heeltemaal uitmekaar.

In hierdie photo, is die primere pen links boe, en die secondere pen is regs. Dan bind ek die primere en die secondere pen aanmekaar met die begin van die secondere tou.

p

Nou is die primere pen (boe) en die secondere pen (onder) vas aanmekaar.

p

Hier is die hele saameselling. Met hierdie metoode, sal die veer in die primere pen nog sy werk kan doen, DWS om skok krag om te skep in gelydelik trek krag, maar as die primere pen begin los trek, sal die secondere pen hom keer om heel uit die grond uit te trek. Soos die primere pen begin los kom, sal die kragte, deur middle van die secondere tou meer en meer aan die secondere pen begin oorgedraa te word. My ondervinding is soodra buide die primere en die secondere pen begin die kragte gelydelik dra, staan die saamestellin sy man vas..

p

 

DUSTY: Warren, dit is min of meer die metode wat ek gebruik.
Vir my werk dit goed. Dit het verlede jaar goed gewerk by Drakensville toe ons daar 'n storm wind beleef het. Alles het bly staan

IT'LDOdat:

Another way of getting the peg to do it’s job is to simply hit it...

Bloomin Hard.....So hard the curve or spring bit is buried under the top of the ground.

Just remember to angle the leaver portion so that the hook is slightly up, so that it ends up parallel with the ground-plane... It also helps to dig a small slootjie for the leaver portion to lie in.

Helpful when the peg can be pushed into the ground by hand for say ½ or ¾ way then the ground get’s hard...

SERVAAS: Very interesting. Thanks for sharing.

So back to, and to conclude this post, on my pegging techniques...

One thing I really like about Bloemhof dam, is that it has all the ingredients for a first-class tryout, and this December past I had a few new things on the go...

One: - I had just substituted my campers old awning, made from the rally tent that came with my old Jurgens Avion LT, with the 5x5 army tent roof & shadenet sides, and secondly, my new Landrover Discovery II 9First trip out)

Just for a moment... a 5x5 army tent roof is 25sq M of canvas... That's a heck of a lot of canvas...

Then Shadenet sides? HUH?

Well see, Solid canvas sides would have made my living space hellish hot.. (There isn't a tree for miles... Literally), So I hit upon the idea of making three and a bit of the sides out of 80% shadenet, using the hooks & straps from the original canvas sides that came with the tent.

But how's that going to work in the rain...

At my pitch, everything is elevated off the ground, (tent on a trailer.... See the logic)?

So instead of trying to stop water from getting into my living space I just let it flow through... Example, I don't put down a groundsheet and everything is either on 50x50 riser's, table & chairs have legs and so on....

Work with nature not against it.... Make sense?....

So, volgens my rideerneering, so what if there is a little splashing through the shadenet... It'll just dry-out... No damage / no fuss... At least I'm living comfortable and cool under 25sq m of shelter...

Not very elegant and oh-so-bloomin-prissy, But then again, unlike other's I'm not trying to establish the Carlton hotel... I'm adventure camping........................................ (Stir-stir-stir.... Is there a "PAP-LEPEL-TOEKENNING" HIER OOK)? Hehehehe

But back to Bloemhof dam... By Ingredients I mean ultra soft ground / (only dry for about 30 – 50mm depth, then it’s damp clay... Go a bit deeper and the water starts seeping up),

Massive Free-State winds and downpours of rain that skrik-vir-nixs..

Now a photo never does things justice, and that’s probably why I’ve never seen photo’s of storms from all the good and clever folk that say they gone unscathed through bad storms...

But for what it’s worth, here are a few of a really bad one that hit.

So I’m happy to say, everything performed exceptionally well.... very iportant as I camp far from any help and I'm on my own..

Without a doubt, my pegging techniques, on that massive 25sq m of canvas out-classed the storm,

The landy crunched over the soft snot without even a murmur of wheel-slip, and the only damage I sustained was my solar panel.....
The wind picked it up and smashed it against the car breaking 1 of the panels.

Fortunately I was it still functioned so I was able to carry on camping and did not loose frozen stuff in my freezer

All-in-all a very successful try-out and I have 100 % confidence in my methods and equipment...

HIER TOM TAT..........MASSIVE STORM ON THE WAY

p

 

 

RAIN FOR UPWARDS OF AN HOUR, SO MUCH SO IT LOOKED LIKE I HAD PUT MY TENT UP IN THE WATER

p

WIND... SEE HOW ITS LIFTING THE SAND ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE LIKE A SANDSTOM IN THE DESERT Still has not got onto the water)

p

MY DAMAGED SOLAR PANEL... THANKFULLY STILL WORKING

POST SCRIPT
Now I’ve managed to track down the photo of my own device that I use to anchor the bottom of standard poles... Remember I called it die staan-vas-ers... I’ll post it on things I’ve made for camping...
