Step 1: Supplies and Tools
Para cord (I actually didn't have enough paracord, so I supplemented with used hay twine)
A tarp (painters plastic will work as well)
and posts (trees are easiest)
tools you will need:
A tomahawk, camp axe, hachet or other similar tool (not absolutly neccesary, but it makes it easier)
Step 2: Step 1, Pick Your Spot
The ground will probably have sticks and rocks you don't want. Clear those away.
Step 3: Step 2, Put Up the Main Line
On the first tree I just tied a slip knot an pulled it tight, walked it over to the second tree, pulled it good and taut, wrapped around the tree several times (that way it isn't pulling back while I tie the second knot) and tied it tight.
Note on height: Remember, you can make it good and tall, but then it can't be nice and wide, I suggest it be a little taller than you sitting down.
Step 4: Step 3, Make the Stakes.
chop, break or whittle the sapling into 5 different pieces (yes, 5, you'll see in a sec).
Choose the biggest heaviest piece, and set it aside. That is your baton, better for hitting stakes than your knife or tomahawk. The other 4 pieces, whittle one side into a point, make it a decent tapered point to, you wqant it to be easy to pound in. On the top, if you want to, carve in a little divot to catch the cord. All this took me about ten minutes, while taking pictures.
