I'm pretty sure your 2X4 stob will come shooting up out of the ground like a lactose patient an hour after a gallon of milk and your pod will slide on the ground better than Otis Nixon did for the Atlanta Braves, cause that's a very heavy stand! Your leverage needs to be up high to pull the stand up. Attach high on tree/structure & to the stand top with a ratchet strap/rope and use your 2X4 stob in the ground to keep the stand from sliding. If there are not any trees or solid structures around where you want to place it I'd find some help. But if you insist on doing it yourself remember, move the head the rest will follow. Gluck bro
