    Extrasstakesclipstieouts

    Ive always carried (2) 12 tieouts, (2) 6 tieouts, continuous ridgeline, and five stakes. The 5th stake is for the hammock bugnet. Ive heard of people carrying lots of different things. What do you guys carry?

    I try to remember the straps for the hammock!

    Seriously, over and above stakes and guylines, I actually carry an extra one-piece ridgeline and spare CLs for the hammock. Just in case...

    Extrasstakesclipstieouts

    All my tarp guylines and ridgeline stay attached to tarp, ready for use, and cant forget, unless I forget tarp
    My EARLY hammock suspensions stayed attached to hammock
    Lately Ive got a different hammock suspension and the straps are not attached to hammock.

    Six stakes, if needed

    Probably could keep straps attached to hammock, if needed-wanted
    Kinda hard to differentiate between needs and wantsespecially when having fun

    Four stakes and a handful of knots.

    Not quite as minimalist. 4 stakes. Straps and a little Ti-ware but only one suspension.

    Tie-outs stay on the tarp. They provide the finish wrap on the cmoulder fold before jumping back in it's stuff sack.

    On longer hikes where going to the ground is possible, I carry 6 stakes. One of these is a Snow Stake which functions as a poop scoop and backup spoon should the need arise. Most of my hikes only require 4 stakes.

    Cordage on tarp & with a little Ti-ware in my kit.

    Lol, in a pinch you do what you've gotta.

    On a rare winter trip to Katahdin more than 20 years ago I used my snow shovel as a plate in order to partake of a thick, delicious stew that a friend had made from sheep shank and some vegetables. It was delicious.

    I have a bonded winter tarp with doors and side pullouts. I carry below:
    4 stakes for main tarp guy outs
    2 stakes for doors on both ends
    2 stakes for side pullouts if needed
    4 additional guy lines with tensioners for side pullouts
    I also carry a Dutch cord winder with 30' of 1.3mm rope just in case I lose a guy line; Weighs practically nothing and is good to have.. All my guy outs are 9' in case I want to prop with stick and go porch mode and I run 1.3mm for everything except ridgeline which is CLR from Dutch. I used to run the 2.5mm & 2mm guy lines from Lawson but have since dropped down in size to cut some weight and so far no issues, even in heavy winds.
    Some days I can't tell whether I found a rope or lost a horse...

    I carry the usual 32'+/- ridgeline seperate from the tarp, four tieouts attached to the tarp, four aluminum "Y" style stakes, one light titanium "V" style stake as a spare or, most importantly, so I can have something to anchor a line so I can get a nice swing going. I also carry about 30 feet of a super thin line 90# test if I need to tie off for wind, whip up a ridgeline or rig up a standable-height porch mode off trees if things get rainy.
