    Stakes

    Looking for help with stakes.
    Would one use the same stakes in snow and into the ground? Is there a difference between them?
    What are recommendations for types of stakes? I was thinking something along the lines of a 3-sided type spike.
    I have a WBBB and a big mamba tarp that I will use 4 tarp guylines with tensioners when set up.
    Should I use the same style of stakes for the tarp as well as the hammock?
    Thanks ahead for your comments.

    Ground hog stakes work well enough for me in snow and soil
    You have nothing to fear but fear itself (and bears)

    Do you want paper or plastic???

    I use these grocery plastic bags in snow conditions. Filled & buried in snow. Have held as well as sticks buried crossways to line.

    Some people use different stakes in normal conditions and winter. In 3 season I use titanium stakes. They're a little bit more pricey, but sure are light and strong. For winter you can use something like these or if the snow is very high you can take plastic grocery bags and fill them with snow to save some cash.

    Have you tried tying you blackbird out to the same stakes that are holding your tarp. I do this with my MacCat standard which my be easier as it is a bit smaller than yours. Saves you carrying and tripping over two extra stakes.
