comment How do I attach a hammock to trees?
If your leaving them on the tree for a long time you likely want to make sure you use suitably wide cored or pad the cord that wraps around the tree. Otherwise you may damage or kill the tree.

comment Is a tepee, log cabin, or lean-to configuration most effective for starting a fire?
Just to add to the list there's also a fire log, One big log split into 5 and tied back together with something to keep the sections apart. This burns for a very long time and is great for cooking on.

comment May camping with a tarp be safer than using a tent, in bear country?
Bears are going to smell you and your camp long before they see you. If you look at a bear it has really large ears and nostrils and very small eyes. Bears have amazing smell and hearing but relatively poor eyesight

I'm not sure on most effective but the basic idea is to get a balance of oxygen supply to availability of fuel (the wood) to retaining the heat in the coals. Think fire triangle you need a good balance of all three elements
