    I use 4-6 unless there is a storm coming; depends on if I'm staking out the Bird, or just the shelf side.
    I tie the doors to the corner stakes and usually tie-out the side panels to trees so that I'm not dealing with downward angles on the lines.

    I always carry a couple of extra stakes (I like to lose stuff), so they are nearby if needed.
    Trust nobody!

    It takes 4-12 tie out points to properly deploy a Superfly. Not all points have to be stakes. I only use stakes when there isn't trees or brush to tie off to. Trees are harder to be pulled out of the ground than stakes.

    On the WBBB, I don't stake the shelf side at all. The shelf is still every accessible. Furthermore, i removed the elastic cord entirely. I do stake the entry side as that makes for a lot more room in the hammock.

    I know this is about the tarp but this nets one less stake.
