[pct-l] Re: Carbon Fiber Tent Stakes

Are the triangular ones the stakes that have a groove on one side?  If I ha=
some and were going to drill holes in the sides to save weight, I would
leave one stake as it is.  We used such a stake once to funnel water from a
slow melting snow patch.  It worked great as a funnel.
