Round Turn Two Half Hitches

This is the knot i used the most frequently while camping. It called the Round Turn Two Half Hitches. 

It basically a knot used to tie an end of a rope onto something, for example, a pole or a tree. 

The advantages of using this knot is that it is very secured under a lot of stress, yet easy to untie when needed. 

Hence, the Round Turn Two Half Hitches becomes an ideal knot to use while camping. I use this knot to tie my hammock onto a tree, to tie the main line of an improvised shelter or even for simple things like making a clothes line.

Very handy and useful. I always find myself using them.
