    Clove hitch, half hitch, slippery half hitch, square knot, msh, taut line hitch, bowline, and the knot I use to tie my shoes.
    Revolution is about the need to re-evolve political, economic and social justice and power back into the hands of the people, preferably through legislation and policies that make human sense. That's what revolution is about. Revolution is not about shootouts.

    Too many. Animated knots is a great place to learn some knots if your looking.

    My favorites are prussic, truckers hitch, and alpine butterfly loop

    I also use (frequently) the bowline, clove hitch, half (and slippery) hitch, figure 8, marlinspike hitch, square (reef) knot, edit (I also use the Siberian Hitch but didn't know the name)

    There's probably another half dozen that I use on occasion but not frequently enough to remember how to do them so I have to look them up on animated knots

    Re: Knots-Whats your favorite

    Bowline and square knot seem to be the most used in general...

    In hammock use the only knot I use any more is just the truckers hitch on tarp and marlin spike on the hammock...

    For my hammock set up, bowling, double fisherman's, square, and half hitch. When out with the Scouts, tautline is used the most. Ohh and I do like the truckers hitch, which I learned on here about a year and a half ago.....RR

    Bowline. I don't care how hard it gets loaded, you'll get it undone, my go-to knot for pulling cars out of ditches or to the gas station. Running bowline when I want to pull the rope back down behind me after I descend that ledge, or to get a pull rope in a tree.

    The newness hasn't worn off the taut line hitch yet.

    When loading the moving truck, the trucker's hitch is the best to tie down a load.
