    What stakes are you guys using for tarps?

    I use these. They are only $3 for a set of four at my local wallyworld.
    They are light, strong, and can't be beat for the price.

    No tent stakes for me. I tie off to other trees, bushes, logs, rocks. In the rare times when nothing is in the right place, I pick up a stick and push it as far into the ground as I can and tie off to that. Hammock sites have plenty to tie off to since we are above it all, it is the tent sites which are clear of everything.

    Awesome, thanks for sharing. I have been using some crappy expensive ones that I broke trying to hammer into the ground with a rock.

    I use Vargo Ti stakes. I live in the south east Appalachian Mtns and mostly I'm sticking my stakes into clay or rocky ground. The ground hogs are great for holding but I didn't have much luck a few times getting them into the ground. I don't really know what kind of soil is mostly in MO but I think stakes have a lot of to do with what kind of ground you're sticking them into.
