    BTW, Ti stakes for frozen ground? Mine have bent occasionally in simply hard ground. Can't imagine driving one into truly solid frozen ground.
    That's a great idea. I recently added some titanium stakes to my gear (having been using aluminum ones for a year or so). I've been really torn about which to bring with me. You've answered my question.

    Yes.. too many
    Another vote for variety..

    I carry four MSR Mini Ground Hogs, two large ground hog knock-offs and a few Ti Shephard Stakes..

    The Ti stakes are really only used on the doors. They won't hold well enough.

    In winter, six gutter nails work best. I've snapped the head off Ground Hogs pounding them into frozen soil.
    The difficulty of finding any given trail marker is directly proportional to the importance of the consequences of failing to find it.

    You wonder why I love to sleep alone, in the woods, in a hammock.. I wonder why you don't...
