Long Tail with Waist Yarn
You can still use the LTCO you rely upon, just join waist yarn for your long tail by tying a slip knot with both yarns together. Do not count the slip knot as a stitch in your CO.

I found this short video that gives a brief demonstration.

This method has one small short coming for me, you have to pick out each stitch of the waste yarn as you pickup the stitches to work. Perhaps not the thing for a 2 AM cast on.

Perhaps it was just time of night that was the real issue?
