I chose to help Bob pay for all this new gear by reducing the cost (and weight!) of his tent stakes to zero. In snow, it is frequently possible to improvise and use gear or natural objects as shelter anchors. Bob will use his trekking poles along with sticks or rocks as anchors. Sticks can be driven into the snow, or can be turned horizontally and buried as a deadman anchor. Rocks can be similarly used either above or below the snow level.
