Why am I sharing my horrible mess that I brought on myself? Because this is how we learn! Sometimes in ham radio we feel like we should know everything just because we passed a test. The truth is, whether you learned something by reading, or by other people telling you, sometimes it just doesn't sink in until you experience it yourself. This is the case even if it is something simple like organization, or something more challenging, like graphing complex impedance. I've read about methods for neatly wrapping rope and cable, I've seen the little plastic kite winders that some people use, I've even seen ways to support masts without guy ropes at all, but I just didn't get around to any of these! Now I'm paying for it, but I learned a valuable lesson first hand - take the time to neatly pack your gear!
P.S. Those things on the end of my guy ropes are actually clothesline tensioners. They work great for quick adjustments and keeping guys tight in portable setups!
