My Locale Extreme northern Sierra Nevada
About Me I'm 60, single male. I had been in Retail Management for over 30 years. I have mostly solo bped since the early mid '70's. I XC some, not afraid to go alone, I also solo winter camp, even out in sub-zero temps. A few years ago, I went on a backcountry bp to Alaska, where I flew in by bush plane with five others into Wrangell/St. Elias NP. Since early 2010, I have been collecting vintage/antique camping and bp stoves, having acquired over 90 now. I like many outdoor activities, from bping to dirtbike riding, gardening.

Extra line used when using line locks?
Those mini line locks are what I ordered for my new ZPacks shelter, thought I would give them a try, so dang light. I usually just poke my stake where I can, that was with my old TT Squall that I ...

Extra line used when using line locks?
Thank you all. John, you explained it best, maximum length. I'm not the best explaining/asking. My old KMart, $19.99 A-frame tent had those half moonish shaped aluminum things attached. Duane
