Just had a brain fart and thought, I bet chop sticks would work for stakes. And they are free and light. Plz give your thoughts.

Are they made out of titanium or wood? Wood probably would break going into the ground, and I bet would break with just a little bit of stress. Perhaps if you burried them sideways, they might... but that is not pratical in most circumstances.

Sure they'd work...and after that, you could laminate a few take-away boxes as poor man's Orikasos. I bet that you could use the fortunes from the fortune cookies as toilet paper, too!

How bout tent stakes as chop sticks? My Titanium goat carbon stakes would work great, especially cuz i accidentally smashed the heads off of two of them. But still, fingers were invented first.

Living in the PNW I laughed at the thought of bringing wood in to the forest.

But I think using Ti tent stakes as chop sticks sounds cool!
