Looks like I'm going to have to come up with a remedy for that, probably 2ft rebar at a 45 and ratchet straps on each corner so I can tweak the tension, I can't tie tensioned knots for shit.
I hate to say it, but the (1/2") 2' rebar I used for my carport last weekend didn't give me much confidence. I added a couple of 3' concrete stakes which ended up making me feel warm and fuzzy.
If you use 2', expect to pound it "below grade". The top 6" of the playa are/will be very crumbly. Welded chain links sound like a good idea.
Ropes are easy. Stop by for a knot lesson or just learn a truckers hitch (bowline, alpine butterfly and two half hitches).
