About Me I dont own a scale or spend alot on gear, still I manage an 8lb base thanks to you good BPLers. Enjoyment is the goal here, which means light gear is important as is "lightness of mind". Kit must not be complex, fragile or expensive.

Guy line knot
I use the taut line hitch once in a while when tarping and Ive had good luck with it. Slack in the line does make the knot insecure, but in my experience it does not completely fall out unless shak...
