comment What should I replace guylines with?
LoL. It helps quite a bit but I was thinking if the entire line was glowing it might work a bit better or help illuminate the lines. I should probably tie 3 or so ribbons on the line instead of my current 1.

comment What should I replace guylines with?
This is actually what I have been currently doing. I take a couple rolls of this stuff on every camp out and use it for all kinds of things.

comment What should I replace guylines with?
Those are definitely good suggestions. Most of the time the activities are well away but it never fails some one trips. Usually because where we tend to go there is limited flat area and the tents all end up pretty close.

I really like the reflective markers. I have never seen those before and I think I will pick some up and try them out. I accepted Rory's answer because that's what I ended up replacing the guylines with.

comment Surviving a forest fire by starting another fire
I couldn't find the article that talked about it or I'd post an answer. But back in the rodeo-chediski fire I remember reading an article about a seasoned forest fighter with about 11 rookies and the winds changed. They all ran but he stopped in a field and started a fire in the field. He tried to explain what he was going and 4 of the rookies stopped to help and the rest kept running. The 5 of them were able to hid in the burn area under some kind of emergency blankets and survive. All went to the ICU but the other 7 weren't so lucky.

comment What are good knots to know for camping and backpacking?
@JayBazuzi I kinda agree, except when you use a bowline to join two pieces of rope (like a square knot is used) it's called a sheep's bend (turn the sheep's bend over after tying and tell me it's not a bowline).
