    Yeah but then i would not have been able to test out my 4 post setup. Also had i planned the setup a bit better and didnt leave stakes and tie down ropes by the first post i dont think i would have needed the assistance. All in all I still dont think its all that hard to setup alone, and it doesnt take that long.

    well the picnic table is in the middle of the bike trails, so not really much room to set up a grill and stuff. However the trails were closed so it would not have been an issue at the time. And yeah we could have sat under some trees but then how would i have tested out the 4 post setup???

    So im looking for the smaller 10lb tanks. Or maybe even a 5lb tank. Just looking for a larger tank to cook with, but dont have the room for a regular 20lb tank.

    They come in a variety of sizes...

    They actually may have them. Would give them a call first before you head over. The reason why i think they might have them is since they also fill propane.

    Most places only have the 20lb tanks. I heard REI sells them but i have not see them anywhere.

    I was looking for a 6lb aluminum tank but then i saw a place wanted $200 for it so ill pass. Trying to prevent from buying a bunch of the green ones and having to lug/throw away so many of them.

    Get an easily swapable 20lb tank, and the refill adaptor.

    Put your small tanks in the freezer for a couple of hours.
    Screw adapter into big tank.
    Screw small tank into adapter.
    Turn contraption upside down.
    Open valve, fill.
    If boom, die.
    If no boom, close valve.
    Remove small tank from adapter.
    Remove adapter from big tank.

    Congrats, you just saved $200 not buying an overland aluminum tank.
