Merry Christmas to everybody.
I know these have been around for a while but I just discovered them--> http://www.instructables.com/id/Paracord-Bracelet-with-Monkey-Fist-Button/
Looks kind of cool and would be a great addition to my survival kit. I'm a Scoutmaster for one of my local Boy Scout troops and I REALLY believe in Being Prepared. I can't count the number of times that I have needed some cord...for whatever reason.
I am currently (tonight) making one of these for all the Scouts and adults in my Boy Scout troop as a Christmas present. I've got 12 boys and 7 other adults.
The first one took a little while but once I got it figured out (and made a few slight modifications), it's not taking very long at all. I started about 3 hours ago and am about half done.
I think the idea is "neat" and will make a great gift for the boys. It's homemade and the materials are inexpensive... so this Boy Scout is being "thrifty" as well.
Happy New Year, y'all.
