This Bivvy bag tent was made by sewing a cheap 8 by 10 foot camouflaged tarp together.
Shoes are used to maintain the opening. Rocks on a windy day.
The bottom of the wood pole was carved sharp to stick in the ground, and the top was carved to fit through the top grommet hole leaving a slight ledge for the grommet to sit on.
A hole was drilled for the cotter pin.
