    How many stakes?

    How many stakes do you use on your WBBB and in what configuration?

    For staking out the sides I'd be hard pressed to use more than two... one on each side. I do try to keep them tensioned at a 90 degrees. Since they are totally non load bearing, I usually use very lightweight stakes for this purpose, about .25oz (or less) titanium.

    +1 for Quoddy's statement. Be hard pressed to carry any more metal than I needed to... even if it is titanium!
    Those who expect disappointment are never disappointed.

    Double up using the tarp stake. Tarp is an OES Spinn Deluxe. Head end of tarp stakes are close enough. Don't really to be exactly 90 degrees.

    A good ol' stick will do..... save the stakes for the tarp.
    I use my tarp stakes to pin down my BB so it just works out.......
