So, my first hexayurt build on the Playa is nearly here. I'm really looking forward to it, but pretty nervous too! I'm planning to get there at 6am ish on Monday, boards edged with foil and taped into two half roof sections, camp danger style, and 3 2-panel wall sections. However, for various reasons, I won't have had the chance to do a test erection (insert cheap gag here) first.
I have 6x 1/2 inch rebar, 6x 3/8 rebar, all 3' in length. I've also got 100ft of poly rope rated to 244lb. I've watched all of the videos re. design and construction, but haven't come across much info on the best way to anchor the thing down. I know about making the anchor points with the bi-fil tape and a length of plastic tube, but wondered if anybody could offer last minute advice about the practicalities...
• Rope halo vs bi-fil anchors. Which is best, or both?
• Does rebar need to be candy-cained, driven in at an angle, or something else?
• Any advice on the best knots to use for the rope?
• Will rope rated at 244lbs be sufficient?
Also, what happens if the "breeze" is blowing when I get there. Is it just best to sit it out until is completely wind free?
