Burning Man Essentials, Ropes and Knots Yo!

Yo friends…as we all get ready to burn, you most likely have been introduced to a plethora of checklists.  One of the things I never see on those lists is rope and how to tie knots.  Going on my 4th trip to Black Rock City, believe me when I tell you if I had a penny for every time a rope and knot would have solved someones problem or prevented injury at Burning Man, I’d be on my own island right now.
With a good rope, you can secure shade structures & tents, make a swing, tow a vehicle and tie down lots of things that might fall on someone (or just tie someone up;) it’s your call.  Ropes are typically less expensive, more versatile and longer lasting than those nylon straps and ratchets, which, lets face it often end up rusted or stuck.  A simple rope and knot can be quick to setup, and super easy to take down, especially when you are sun burned, partied out and half your crew left without saying goodbye.
The knots I have found most useful on the playa are Half Hitch, Overhand, Bowline, and Truckers Hitch.  Below you can find a link to one of my favorite sites that teaches you how to tie these using animations and videos.
