    This approach and the figure 8 have been suggested for years in old threads....Some of us add, finishing with a bight tuck...Thus it ends in a slippery ... Pull the end and unravel without and knots or hassle

    +1 on the figure 8's with a couple loops to finish it off.

    I use a figure 8 on all my backpacking ropes to keep them untangled.

    How about the no-tangle line? My eno came with it and it worked great. Have had some tangle issues since I upgraded my tarp and went with mason line. Tree to Tree sells it: http://stores.tttrailgear.com/-strse...ine/Detail.bok

    I've been rolling the tarp with the lines thrown in as I roll, as TinaLouise described. Works well.

    Like others, I hank my cordage, but I finish it like the gentleman in this video. Then, you can just pull on the free end and it all comes apart; don't even have to unwind it. The hanking part starts around 3:45:

    My guylines have bowlines in the end that I snap into a minibiner on the tie-outs. When packing, I wrap the guy lines (stake end first) onto a tent stake that in turn goes into a small bag with the other stakes and ridgeline.

    hanking or what I do is fold the tarp over on its self three time using the ridge line. Then I roll it down to the bottom where the lines are still hanging and wrap them around the tarp
    like so

    My solution;
    with one end attached to the fly
    I wrap the guy lines such like this;

    +1 for Bradley. I remember running across his video a few months back--it works great and stays put. I wanted to include a link to it, but couldn't for the life of me find it. Glad it made it's way here.
    You're gonna need a bigger hammock
