Tarp Tree Huggers and Continuous Ridgeline
So, up here in the Rocky's we hang from pine and the associated sap.
Because of it, I've kept my tree huggers in a plastic bag.
Moving from attaching the tarp to the HH suspension, I don't want to attach my continuous ridgeline to the tree.
I was thinking of using a 4' length of Dynaglide with eyes on both ends, and use it like a hugger. On the adjustable end, I was going to used a figure nine. I'm just not sure what to used the fixed end. Nacra biner, bowline, other suggestions? Looking ideas since I can't find the knot bone that Opie uses.
And while I'm here. Do people still use tarp tensioners with a continuous ridgeline? I'm using penberthy prusiks to attach the tarp to the RL. Plan was to use a double loop of shock cord on one of the prusiks? Yay nay, or other suggestions?

Ching, you have to order direct from Nite Ize right now....
But just about anything will work. Biner, toggle, trail stick.
I wouldnt reccomend a tensioner on the RL itself. Generally you want to crank that relatively tight. Tensioners go in the guy lines if you have a nylon tarp. You can add a tensioner to one of the RL prusiks, but youll more than likely always be pulling it tight, which means its just added length.
