    Slip the webbing through the fixed loop.

    Form the spike hitch below the loop.

    Insert toggle of choice.


    I was just saying that way if you HAD to use your hiking pole as a toggle, you wouldn't have to slip the loop around the toggle.
    Do you have to trap the whoppie sling i the knot, i always just tied a marlin spike hitch with a toggle, and threw the whoppie over it.

    Nope. The way you do it is fine.

    Yepper, little coleman cheapies. I've hung on them a dozen or so times. At 330 lbs., I think thats a pretty good stress test.

    That is just like I do it (same biner) except I just make a loop around the biner...not the prusik or almost prusik or whatever that is (I even downloaded that book of knots...I am so ashamed). It has worked for me so far.

    I've done it both ways, this method is a twist, with the line just flopping inside the gate of the biner. Not to complicate things, just a variation. Loop just thrown over the biner works fine, and is usually what I do.

    I already have biners on my pack. I think biners may be the way to go. But if I get to a 7-11 I'm getting ne of those straws for sure. And sticks form the ground.... Sounds a little shadey, but I'm going to try it this weekend. So much gear to test, so little time.

    Dutch, you don't need straws if you use the arrow sections I sent. Just whittle off the fletchings and you are ready to go!

    I use a couple of short pieces of an old lightweight tent pole. Hooked up Grizz-style to my tree hugger.
    Did not need that tent any old ways.......

    I can't wait to try it. I'm still getting a slurpy though. Who doesn't love a good slurpie every now and then?
