    Just a quick video illustrating the prusik knot on a ridge line to hang a tarp, with use of toggles!

    Very well done, could you also use a spliced loop of amsteel & do away with the knot?

    What sets a canoeing expedition apart is that it purifies you more rapidly and inescapably than any other travel. Travel a thousand miles by train and you are a brute; pedal five hundred on a bicycle and you remain basically a bourgeois; paddle a hundred in a canoe and you are already a child of nature.

    Thanks liquidbomb! Nice clear video demonstration for the new folks and a great refresher for the others.
