Dog Owner’s Carabiner
Carabiner – Would have been handy (Photo by dpit Media V2)
But– Ryan didn’t have any on hand. His girlfriend may have…ahem…broken his on the way to Spy Rock last April. : ) But Ryan found something else that worked great– Henry the Beagle’s retractable leash. Because it was a leash, we were able to wrap it around the tent numerous times. And because it was retractable, we were able to adjust to the exact length we wanted. It worked out great!
So dog owners, if you are ever in a pinch– keep that retractable leash in mind. Though, I certainly wouldn’t recommend retractable leashes to be in your first string of backpacking equipment.
They’re too heavy. : )
