    I’ve seen this several times. It’s a good idea. Most people carry a battery drill/driver now. 30 years ago, we camped at Airlie Beach. The camping ground was packed. We were the last there, so everyone was sitting outside their van or tent, drinking and watching us put our tents up. There was no way that we could put our tent pegs into the ground. We hammered, bent pegs and swore for half an hour. Much amusement all round, except us. Then one of the other campers took pity on us and loaned us better pegs and a small sledge hammer.

    If all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

    That or the ground is as hard as concrete. Wouldn't surprise me.

    Although it looks like he's pre-drilling a hole to belt a peg into, screw in pegs are totally a thing. https://www.bunnings.com.au/whites-wires-15pk-screw-in-tent-pegs_p3042468

    That’s what we do when we camp - amazing time saver, batten screws with a 3D printed cap head, works extremely well.

    Sharpening pegs on a bench grinder helps with hammering them in.

    Once you go to this length I would have thought it just as easy to turn up with 50 kg of concrete to tie off on.

    Marketing has convinced us that to be the biggest man at the campground you have to have the most camping shit. Whatever happened to ‘roughing it?’Americanised.

    I have seen these used before, the pegs are like giant screws so they can be driven into the ground with a rattle gun. Much easier than hammering them in. And easy to get out of the ground too

    It is typical Georgian fashion. Look it up.

    The lower part of the outfit consists of pantaloons and tight leggings, his legs aren't bare. There are embellishments but other than being above the knee it is pretty standard dress for the era.
