Make a Paracord Bracelet, that’s the title of an article I recently came across over at Squidoo. Now I’m like you, I’ve always seen those Bear Grylls looking survival bracelets but judging from the looks of them didn’t think I’d have the patience to make a paracord bracelet myself. But after reading this article I’ve not only made my own bracelets, I’m now branching out! I’ve made these woven lanyards (if you can even call them that) for key chains, backpack hangs, etc… I’ve come to realize that not everything is as difficult as it seems if you’ll only try. And I’m not on a “real” quest to know everything, despite the title of my site, my real goal is to keep learning… as much as I can.
I was recently visiting a Survival website which had some paracord stuff on it. Now if you’re at all like you me you somehow find yourself meandering all across God’s web creation because you see a link and follow it to who knows where. But this survival website caught my attention (alright, so its not to hard to do, right) because as I began reading the website I realized that hey, they’re right… I am NOT prepared for any type of emergency or disaster. If I cant get Cheez-It’s and Dr Pepper I’ll likely starve or die of dehydration!
So aside from reading lots of articles I found myself becoming a wandering (if not lost) soul of sorts on a quest to know everything I can about anything I can. So my latest kick is to learn more about survival and what it means to be prepared, or even more specifically what it is about basic life skills that I can learn, that are truly second nature to a lot of people around the world and were to our ancestors as well, but we’ve somehow totally lost touch with. I’m just saying, don’t think I’ve fallen off my rocker if you see a post or two about something survival related… it’s just me being me. And besides, when the poop hits the fan I’ll be the one sporting the coolest survival bracelet in the woods.
