My Locale Oregon and Washington
About Me I started hiking about 45 years ago. My first backpack was 40 years ago. I currently try to do one backpack trip of 5 nights every month (which can be tricky in the winter) 20 to 50 miles. Mostly I stay around Mount Hood, Columbia Gorge, Mount Adams, Goat Rocks, and the Olympic Peninsula. In recent years I have shifted to lightweight - my pack weight without food and water is about 15 lb (7 kg). I make a lot of my own gear - silnylon tarp-tent, bivy, synthetic bag, simple bag style pack. My sleeping pad is a Therm-a-Rest air mattress.

Re: Re: pre-cut lines
good idea to do "slippery" knot for a tautline hitch, do two regular turns, then for the final turn, just put a loop through so you can yank on the line to undo it.

Re: pre-cut lines
The only problem with moving the tent stake out is, where I go it's often difficult to get a stake pounded in because of rocks. Sometime I have to try different spots until I finally find a sp...
