    How cold is it?
    Always Changing :)
    I just used 2 half hitch knots....I've spent many nights with this set up and never had any problems with slip, but I'm not sure it's the safest way. If you choose to do that, do it at your own risk, and hang close to the groud so you don't have too far to fall if something fails.
    If you ain't havin' fun, you're doin' it wrong

    I've been hanging my Hennessy this way for 4 years now, including every night of a 6-month AT thru-hike, and the lines show no particular signs of wear. FWIW.
