In TX we pounded the tent stakes into the ground and when we got ready to leave there was NO way those stakes were coming out of the ground (large ones with the green plastic tops).! We had to break the 4 inch PVC out of the flange and leave it there!
I mean there was NO way...we used various sized hammers, claw hammer, rubber hammer...those stakes were NOT coming out and we couldn't even tear off those green plastic tops to enable the rotation to be able to lift it out of the slots. *Hated* leaving it there as we always leave a "clean space"..nothing left behind.
New flange bottom now... using the smaller heavy wire type tent stakes...flange has slots so if we can't get the stakes out of the ground we can rotate the base and lift it out of the stakes.
Oh, btw, ours is black. Painted the PVC to match the metal lantern on top.
...got pics here somewhere on my phone...need to post up one or two I guess.
Our lamp is electric...wish I could find a solar powered one.
I use the candle flicker type bulbs. Looks neat at night.
If age is a state of mind, and I've lost my mind, I'm AGELESS, right?
