Thanks for the comments, guys. I'm glad that you all enjoyed the trip report.
Totally agree. The folks at Jeffco open space really seem to have it together as far as acquiring land and managing the different recreational uses.
I'd definitely like to see more, also. It would fun to to see how hikers around the country and around the world handle the challenges of doing a 24 hour trip.
Here's what I do with the Shangri-La 2: Stake out the four corners in as perfect a rectangle as you can get. Pull out the loops on either side and stake them down. Get inside the tent and expand and lock each pole into the peaks. If your ridgeline is not as tight as you would like it, you can angle the poles outward. I haven't tried this yet, but I think you can get the same effect by tying guys to each of the top loops and staking them straight out.
