    Lightbulb I made a lanyard for my Griptilian today

    This is what happens when I get bored and I find scraps of paracord lying about... my childhood summer camp skills come out to play!



    I also made a survival bracelet like those sold online. The one I made turned out a little bit too big (I mis-measured the buckle length) so when I went to remake it, my wife, with her years of hemp knotting experience, snatched it up out of my hands and knotted it up in 5 minutes flat (something that took me about 45 minutes the first time around!).







    Not too bad for a rank amateur!

    You'd think that after 3 years sitting in the back of an LAV with not much to do, and tons of 550 cord, that I would have figured out how to make things like that.

    Tough to hone those fine motor skills when you're bouncing around like you're inside a clothes dryer though!

    Pretty cool looking 'pass time'...and a possible money maker. I can remember using 'gymp' (at summer camps...many decades ago) to braid chains and other important items...you seem to have renewed that hidden skill.

    Enjoy!

    Chooie's got an edge though. He gets to sit around all day and watch his wife knit and braid and do all sorts of weird things with strings.

    He's got an in.

    I'm sorta lost, what is the point of a survival bracelet?
    Better to die on your feet, than to live on your knees.

    This should explain it:

    Utility Bracelets


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.
