FYI: These say "zinc," so they may just be zinc plated, so they may rust quickly out on playa. We'll see.


The nice thing about that store is that the shipping is about $8-10 for any quantity, so you don't need to buy 50x at a time. Even at 50x it's cheaper than the regular place.

How could anyone go to the playa without vice grips, even if you haven't got stakes to remove???
