      Clay, Well done, as always. As an old boy scout and now a scout leader, I love those knots. At camp a young leader showed me the new and improved clove hitch. The tag end just goes under the X, not below it. It’s supposed to be stronger, although the old one never failed me.

      Thanks again for sharing your wealth of knowledge. Best, dwc

      I’ve tried all sorts to get tension into my hammock, truckers hitch just never occurred to me.

      Probably due to some of the dubious company Ive camped with but I always drop the tag end thru any loops just in case someone ‘accidentally’ pulls them.

      Another great chapter, Mark.

      Excellent Job Clay.:D If anyone is looking for a site on how to tie knots one of the best I have come across is “Knots by Grog” it is animated and shows step by step how to tie 100’s of different knots.

      That’s full of great stuff. I love the little sliding knot on the peg line at the end. Thanks mate 😀
