I guess you could say this is an off chute of hogan8r's thread he posted about essential knots. What knots do you use to tie off your hammock? I don't know much about knots, and most of the time it seems like I tie my hammock to a tree by wrapping the rope till I can pull on it and it doesn't come down. Then I just put a slip knot in it call it done. However, I would like to put a method to my madness, but with as many knot resources as there are out there (not to mention how many knots exist), it is a little overwhelming figuring out where to start. So, back to the question, what is your method to tying off your hammock?
