    The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy,
    while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn."

    I do the exact same thing but with a ranger band.

    I figure-8 hank mine and they stay on the tarp. My tree straps go in the top pocket of my pack usually.

    I use the wrap loosely around the hand technique. Then I take the last few inches and figure 8 it but I keep a finger in the top so it stay nice and neat. Pull a bight through the top loop, then take the last length through the bight. Pull tight and its not going anywhere. Very fast to open up and its not tangled.

    For extra cordage, I bring a little sunglasses bag with spools used out of magnesium rods from firesteel.com. I've got one with 7/64" amsteel, bankline, a. sinew, and some snare/bailing wire. I also keep a bunch of hemp wrapped around my Hoodlum.

    I leave the lines on the tarp. NO wrapping or figure-8'ing, or looping or bags or nothing. I just flip the lines onto the tarp then roll up the tarp. Hardly ever tangles.
