    For my tarp I just lay the lines on the tarp as I roll it up (I roll my tarps and secure them with a short piece of shock cord wrapped around and held with a cord lock) Other lines get the same figure 8 wrap. On the Blackbird, I toss the zipper side tieout inside the hammock and zip it shut.

    The figure 8 that dejoha shows in that excellent infographic is what I do. I have Zing-It on my Superfly and self-tensioning guylines made with 3/32 shock cord and braided mason's line on my Edge. Use the same technique for wrapping both up and it works like a charm.

    @Jax: thank you for the graphic! Step #4 was REALLY helpful (yes, I am one of the knot impaired people!).

    Here's a YouTube video of the figure eight that's really helpful. It's shown coiling para cord but will work with any line.

    I fold my cuben tarp and just wrap the lines around the bundled tarp. Then when I setup I just let them shake out loose. Sure there are some minor tangles, zing-it is very forgiving.

    If it is big I will wrap the cord aroun my arm and when it is almost wrapped around I will wrap it a couple times horizontally and then tuck the end under the horizontal wrap. With guy lines I just do the same thing except under my hand.
