    'Classic.' A book which people praise and don't read. ― Mark Twain

    Who cares about showers, gourmet food, using flush toilets. Just keep on walking and being away from it all.

    There are times that the only way you can do something is to do it alone.

    All good ideas, thanks guys! Guess it really doesn't matter what you put there, just wondering what the experts did.

    Grizz (aka - ProfessorHammock on YT) has a great solution that I use. Check out his video here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2sUfGqudl_8

    He calls it a "Blocking End Whipping Knot". The actual description of tying it is at 3:33 - 6:28 this allows you to snug down your loop so it doesn't fall off while adjusting your lie and also prevents the accidental loss of your loop.
