I have a heavy duty shed on a concrete base, with big 4x4 posts for hte corners in my backyard, which seems to be pretty solid to put a big ol eye hook thingie in there for one side of the slack line.. But now, I'm lacking the other side. My picnic table it a bit too wobbley.

So, what do I do now??

about 20 feet away is the house, which has a bit of the concrete foundation visible.. I could drill a hole into that for an anchoring point, but being it's low I can't use that as THE point - just as a place to help secure..



Code
   **.      |

ok, my crappy drawing is my only idea on the second anchoring point.. do a little 2x4 frame (indicated by the *), and then use some webbing (the periods) to secure to the bottom of the foundation (the pipe/vertical bars is the wall of the house).

Does anyone have a better way, or is this it?

well, I'm back to the drawing board.. I can't use the foundation to anchor anything - the landlord doesn't like that idea :-( (I shoulda never told him, and hid the anchor bolts under the lip of the grass!!)

So, back to anchoring point B - is there a solid way to do this using a wooden frame and the ground? I would use the car, but I can't bring that in the backyard. oh well, I guess no way to get the line seup in the back yard...

Look at the second page of the "Got pics of YOU "walking the line" ???" thread... rrradam has a pic of him on the line with a set up that might work for you... looks like a pallet with a bunch of sand bags for weight. Would be fairly expensive I would think, but it might work
