    Any chance we can get a visual of a guy line attached to one of these? I'm curious but having a hard time visualizing how the line would be attached.

    Wonderful idea! And they come in useful if I lose my spoon.

    No pics but I think it's an awesome idea! Angled drive, 2 wraps and a couple of slippery half/hitch's and you should be in business.

    I just do like a marlin spike hitch around the chop stick then plant it in the ground.

    I'll try knock something up at home because I never take a camera when I head off into the wild.

    Slip knot around the stick. Stick stuck in the ground at an angle. Easy Peasy. Just make the slip knot with the standing line (attached to the tarp) in your right hand, so that pulling on that line tightens the slip knot. Pulling on the other line will loosen it so that you can get the line off the stake the next morning. Then, a tug, and the line no longer has a knot.
