    Where is the arrival procedure map? Trying to find it again to print out but forgot where I found it.
    Do most of you just use the screw in anchors for tie downs?
    Is there a map showing where GAP will be so I can be better prepared?

    A lot of folks, myself included, use a stake type like the Claw. I use the system from Flyties. These systems are significantly more expensive than the screw types but I’m convinced they are worth the investment. I’ve been through some serious storms at Osh and never had cause for worry.

    Seconded. There are plenty of far superior tie down systems.

    The Claw, Flyties, and several homebrew options. The EAA Vintage design works well if you want to trade your time to save a few dollars.

    They are earth anchors not the cheap dog leash type but will look at other options although doubt I can get before I leave. Hopefully someone sells some there
