    I push it in with my boot... If the ground is so hard that I can't do that (even after trying a few different spots) I'll look for other stuff to tie off to.

    May the Swartz be with you.

    A rock or tie to a log even if you have to drag it over, especially in snow. Look for exposed roots to tie around and use small cord rather than rope.

    the back side of my hatchet... it comes on 80% of trips... and boot like everyone else said... rocks work as hammers but they are last resort... i have bent a few stakes beating them in with a rock... wood works, but usually disintegrates after the first one or two stakes... but maybe that's why i'm called Brute too...
    Live, Laugh, Love, if that doesn't work. Load, Aim and Fire, repeat as necessary...
