Took advantage of the Easter weekend 25% coupon and picked up the telescoping flagpole: As usual, really good value from HF. It's well made and functional. Tried a different approach for setting it. Usually set stuff like this in concrete. Had read several different sources that carefully compacted gravel will make a very rigid support hole and works well for poles. Seems to be working out. We'll see what the next high winds bring. Also picked up the solar powered flagpole light, which puts out a decent amount of light, but it's not really bright enough to mount low on the pole and get decent illumination. Will play with it some more to see if I can improve the lighting.
