    I do the girth hitch around the tree sometimes, and sometimes I just tie a slipped overhand knot to fasten the line to the tree - a bit quicker and plenty secure. I use a pair of the carabiner figure 9's to adjust the lines, and the carabiners are clipped through the metal rings on my mamajamba tarp.

    It is nice to have a mat to step out on. I carry a small pad that serves as the back pad of my pack, sit pad, go to ground pad (have'nt had to do that yet) and mat.

    A top quilt works much better than a bag for regulating your temperature.

    If you unzip your bag to your knees, leaving a foot box, it can be used like a quilt.
