>>1981685>what is a pack frame
>>1982295The only acceptable items to have on the outside of your pack are axes, crampons, rope, and hardware. There are already attachment points for these on the pack.

Different knots, not that many, I don't remember the names. Bushcraft usa forums lesson section is where I learned them.
