    Thought I would just mention I ordered 10 "groundhog" type stakes off Ebay awhile ago. They are stated as being a aluminum alloy and they were $7.00 including delivery from China!

    Anyone have any experience with them?
    I will follow up with a review when they turn up.

    Try MSR needle stakes I always seem to find a crack or crevasse to jam them in.

    Aluminium gutter nails have been mentioned and they work fine but fragile if the ground is rocky or frozen.

    A 7" ring nail, pole barn nail, high tensile, works for me in any seasons all terain even sand or deep soft snow.

    I always carry a small vise grip to use on other things and to pull the ring nails.

    With you on that one. The lightest pegs are the one you don't have to carry in :-)

    In snow I just take say a 1 meter long dead branch, tie the guy line to the middle and bury it in snow. It won't come out unless I want it to.

    No need to haul stakes.
