    Marlin spike and prusiks knot. Clove hitch and some not sure of the name. Usually, on my tarp guylines, it's the old, if ya can't tie a knot, tie alot knot. Works well until it's time for hammock and tarp pack-up.

    Knots-Whats your favorite

    My favourite knot is the Hunters Bend.
    You can usually tell when I have used one if the Scout Group's tents as all the guy lines are are now attached with Bowlines.
    The one I seem to tie all the time is the Friendship Knot on Cub and Scout neckers (scarves)

    I'm a fan of the taught line hitch, bowline, prusik and slippery half hitch of course.
    If I can't get my gear off the ground and tight with a combination of those, I don't deserve to own cordage.

    Taut line, bowline, and half hitches are all I remembered from my scouting days. Since I've found y'all I have learned the truckers hitch (while I love) and marlin hitch. Those are my most used knots. I still haven't tried a prussic.
