One camping trip I went on, was with my mate and his family to Gulgong.
Was a top spot, on a creek etc...
anyways.... they had a bit of washing they needed hanging up, so the rope line went up, and the clothes just hung over it, but my mates mum was getting a annoyed that they kept falling off, so the "boy scout" in me kicked in,
and so i went about making pegs. Found some nice fallen tree branches, got my trusty knife out and started to make a slit in the branch. it was tricky at first, but once i managed to work out the best branch, length and splitting method, pegs where made.
