For goodness Stakes!
We even have a whole page for camping tips that we are adding to!
Here is just another one you might be able to use.
We use a lot of tarps when camping, mostly to shelter us from the lovely rain of the Pacific Northwest.
If you’re like us then you’ve left a trail tent stakes at every place you’ve ever camped. Great find for the next camper, not such a great find when you go to pitch your tent next.
Naturally Ranger is pretty innovative and solves most problems with a few tools from nature herself.
So if you find yourself with a few less stakes then you had before give these Tent Stakes A Try!
Take your handy dandy hatchet, and flip that sucker around so you can beat up and splice the top of a stick. This will prevent your rope from slipping off. You can also sharpen the other end of the stick like a real tent stake so it will dig in to the ground better.
