What should we use as our spare ski pole?

We need you to solve a dilemma about equipment for us. When we cross country ski, both Amy and I use ski poles. We have been carrying one spare ski pole in case one of ours breaks. It is one of my old poles. This pole is actually longer than any of the poles Amy and I are using. Amy pointed out that if we actually needed to use the spare pole, it would be kind of awkward, because it is a different length than our poles. She suggested purchasing a new adjustable ski pole. An adjustable ski pole would be easier to pack than our current spare, because it would collapse down to a smaller size. On the other hand, we would be spending money on something that we are unlikely to use.

What do you think? Is it worth it to purchase a new adjustable ski pole or should we stick with the spare ski pole we already have? Maybe you can think of another option that we haven’t even considered. Please help us decide what to do.

    You could go into the woods & cut down a popular tree for your ski pole.

    We had many ideas for you: we think you could adjust the long ski pole, or use it for something else, like a brake for going down steep hills. Maybe you could exchange it for something else you need. You could also get new skis the next time you go to the store.
