I just purchased a REI half Dome 3 Plus tent. It only came with eight tent stakes. The instructions talks about staking the tent down in a wind but there are not enough stakes to do that. Was I shorted some tent stakes or does this tent only come with eight stakes?

@bkammers thanks for reaching out! The REI Half Dome 3 Plus tent comes with 8 stakes, so you've got the right number! Typically you would use 4 to stake the 4 corners of the tent, and the remaining 4 would be used to stake out the rain fly, often 1 on each side of the tent. Here's an article on pitching a tent that may be helpful! Let us know if you have additional questions!
