8654[Hammock Camping] Re: Knot photos in group's photo album
- Apr 11, 2005Rat,
I was looking at the Exploding Clove Hitch and tied it off. It
looked to me that for hammockers, that it would be applicable for
similar applications as the Bowline with a Slip Loop, or quick
release ( http://www.junglehammock.com/tips.php & Page Down about 3
times). But, I noticed that after the Exploding Clove Hitch is loaded
that it is much more difficult to untie. Am I missing something...
seems like either knot should have sufficient holding power for tarp
ridgelines or hammock suspension lines? Anyway, as you know, being
able to easily untie knots is important... sometimes the difference
between great gear and gear that is a piece of @#%& is whether or not
you can untie it from the trees in the morning <grin>.
