    I use disposable toggles. That way I don't worry about losing them. I just find a couple 4" sticks when I'm setting up. Then when I break camp, the toggles stay in the piney woods where I found them.

    I don't know why I didn't think about this, good idea. I prefer the arrow shafts over sticks because they are so smooth to pull out of the knot. Might try carabiners sometime though.

    I use the mini 'biners that attach my Camelbak holder to my pack (odd pack design). But, if you use mini 'biners that're essential to your packing method (regardless of where you put 'em), you will not get far without remembering them.

    Hope it helps!

    I just find sticks in the woods, but my other setup I just used a double larks head knot, which I guess is a weak prusik...presik...(SP?)

    Thanks Bubba.

    That's what I'm going to use.
    Simple, efficient and effective.

    I used to do this, until I had a rude awakening one night and found myself on the ground. I was sure the weight was on the knot and not the stick, but it must have slipped and the stick went SNAP.
