I forgot my trekking poles once and didn't notice till I was 2 hours in. I did fine with tree branches!

Based on comments for the drop, I purchased carbon fiber collapsible poles from here that work quite well: http://www.rutalocura.com/Tent_Poles.html They are pricey but well made and light. I ordered 2 each of these items, for a total of $130(!) with shipping. 3 Section, 450 Tarp Pole Item# 23 Length: 42 Spike: Spike 450 Adjuster Item# 25

I went on an overnight and forgot the poles. . I was able to make do with a ridge line between to trees. Was it perfect? No. But it was ok. If I had dyneema cord it probably wouldnt have been an issue. But paracord stretches too much. So its possibly tonuse a ridgeline. Otherwise just find 2 sticks that are tall enough. Might take a bit but it would work

Either get some hiking poles or some adjustable tent poles from another company. To me the hiking poles are so worth it. Apart from taking the strain off the knees when going downhill they prevent my hands from swelling on long hikes and you can use them to roll out the kinks and knots in your legs.
