REI now carries a new mountaineering/ backcountry wand by a company named 8850m. They are light weight 2 piece wands that store easily. The have reflective tape for easy detection at night/morning and have a 2' long blaze orange flagging. A 5 pack is $12 clams and the bag can be used as storage. They work great ! The are called BACKCOUNTRY WANDS. Safety FIRST......

You can buy the garden bamboo stake ( tamato stake) at a hardwear store for about a $1.50 for 25 and a roll of red duct tape or surveyors ribbon and make your own. Cheaper than pre made, so you can spend more money on pop tarts. mmmm
