    I agree - great thread.
    I find I pretty much only use three knots in the bush:

    Bowline
    "Slip knot" (AKA marlinspike hitch)
    Truckies hitch - although I was taught to tie this with two loops not one. Not sure why as only one of the loops is used for tensioning and the other just sits there.

    My most frequent use of the bowline on a bight is as the loop for a trucker's hitch. It's a reliable fixed loop in the middle of the line, and it unties very easily after the hitch is undone (even when it has been pulled down very tightly to secure a load). Other knots I've used to form this loop have either been unreliable or difficult/impossible to untie when I'm finished with it. Obviously, it depends on the type of cord you're using, which for me is often paracord.
