Mason line for Tarp Tie Outs. I picked up 500' at the Home Depot. I also used it to create prusik knots for my tarp.
I totally agree, but again with scouts, I figure that they will be abused and stretched too tight and who knows what, so to make them more abuse-proof, I decided to go with Amsteel. For the tarp pull outs I bought some cheep utility string too, it was so nominal a cost that I did not bother putting it in the list.
