I made my way to Home Depot on Saturday where I purchased a 10' section of PVC pipe. I then cut it in half. On one half I lined the grommets of my American Flag up to the pole, and drilled two holes into the pipe at those marks. Bought two bolts and matching wing nuts, a coupler and put it all together. I spent a total of $5.00 for the flag pole and the made for pretty comfortable and non-cumbersome hiking poles. I hiked with the flag in my pack as well as the above September 11th photo book from Reuters, and made our way to the peak.
