A guy who is into a little bit of everything...music (listening and making it), photography, DIY, technology, the outdoors (hiking, backpacking, climbing...), and trying to live by grace through faith. I also currently work at a high adventure camp in the Southeast where I also do a little bit of everything...

Also the fact that the double fisherman's is not the best choice of knots for this either: not as strong and very difficult to untie after being weighted.

comment Lowering off from anchors vs. rappelling after a climb?
"In direct" is unnecessary and confusing, as you mention. And "off-belay" is not the same as "off-rope." "Off-belay" means the belayer needs to stick around and is possibly still required. "Off-rope" means they are completely done.

comment Tent placement?
If the current answers do not contain enough detail, it could help to add more specific information to your question to get the detail you're seeking. These aren't bad answers from my perspective, but I'm not in Australia...

comment Groups: What are proper occasions for a large, shared hole for waste?
I can certainly understand your strategy here. Most of the trips I've led are with youth, and they don't always like to dig the proper cat-hole, especially the girls. Do you ever take anything like lime to spread in the hole between uses help to alleviate the stench?

This acoustic is one I've really been considering.

If it helps some answers, this is the travel guitar I'm heavily considering. Didn't think I should include that in the question though.

This is also an interesting one. Seems fairly compact.

This is interesting, I was thinking more along the lines of an acoustic, but I could consider this option. How much does this setup weigh? (kg/lbs, either one)
