    I buy them in bundles of 100. Last time, I think they were $40 a bundle for the plain 48" ones without any reflector on top.

    Doesnt your local Home Depot have them? Ours does. I pay $2 for the plastic 4'ers with the blue or red reflector on top. (Lollipop reflectors)

    Longer stakes for BIG snow?

    Has anyone seen a fiberglass stake in longer sizes, like 10 feet. Right now I buy 10 foot pvc, 4' rebar stakes and DOT reflective tape, but it's labor intensive to put out and maintain. I plow about 3/4 mile of dirt road and 5 driveways. By February, I've only got 2 feet those showing.....

    By that time, you should be able to tell where the edges are by the banks you've formed to that point. I don't need stakes to go by after the first couple storms anyway. But, no, I've never seen plastic stakes longer than 48" for sale.
