    That is how I figured it was done But couldn't remember.
    Now that I am back at it as well
    I think that is a very useful knot

    re

    Face palm moment!

    Shug, I've watched a lot of your videos but I've missed that one.

    I use the large figure 9's on my main suspension (will go to UCR in the near future) and I'm always annoyed at having to readjust them. I never thought of using a prussik for them.

    And the sad thing is the HH tarp tensioner is just a few inches away mocking me with its slideable prussik goodness just asking me why.

    These days I'm using 1/8" braided poly cord from Home Depot for my ridgeline and tarp tie-outs. It's probably overly heavy, but cheap and I do not worry about strength at all. If I have a complaint about it, it's that my prusiks don't slide too well on it when not under tension (but they don't slip at all when tensioned so I guess its a mixed bag). One of these days I'll probably upgrade, just for weight savings if nothing else.

    I rode out a crazy windstorm early in the spring, trees down everywhere... about all I did different was to pitch my tarp pretty low, and put the biggest rocks I could find on top of my stakes to help keep them in the ground. I guess it was the only really bad night's sleep I ever had in the hammock, what with all the roaring of the wind, rain, and angry river just a few feet away. Still fun tho

    PS, be extra-careful about site selection if you know you're riding out a storm... look for any suspect widow-makers or dead trees that could come down on your position.

    By the way, not that it has anything to do with anything... but Rain-X is not indicated for use on plastic motorcycle helmet visors or plastic motorcycle windshields.

    Use a plastic polish like Plexus, or Protect-All, in fact use this stuff *anytime* you clean your visor (avoid Windex-type cleaners, paper towels, or other abrasives, they cloud up your visor over time). A clean, soft cotton towel or micro-fiber towel is best.

    If, you know... you ride motorcycles.
