Saturday Quick Tip 2-1-14

TOWEvery Saturday, we are going to add a “Tip of the Week” to the Blog.  A tip that will be focused on Backpacking, camping, hiking, cooking, or other skills associated with the great outdoors.
This weeks tip is a simple one that will save wear and tear on your pack and keep your gear organized and clean.
Let me know if you have a tip you want to share.  Also, if you have ideas or tips that you have questions about or want to see.  Please let me know and I will do my best to put them up here.
In this tip I use a Marlin Spike hitch.. to learn how to tie the Marlin Spike, check this site out.  Animated Knots by Grog

    Nice one! I’ve always done the same using a Timber Hitch around the tree and a carabiner to clip the haul loop on my pack. The stick makes me feel like a fancy boy.
    I really like the quick hit videos. A couple minutes is perfect.

    • Thanks Phil. I have tried a couple different ways of getting my pack off the ground, this one seems easiest and since I’m in Oregon, we never have a shortage of sticks.
