Just because we don’t live in Action Movieland doesn’t mean the the Saints are wrong. You never know when you’re going to need a rope. When that day comes, knowing how to tie some knots will also be handy.
For information on that subject we can thank Animatedknots.com The site is full of knots you remember—or have at least heard of—as well as an entire library of knots you haven’t. Even if an assault on the North Ridge of K2 isn’t on your todo, knowing how to tie a bowline, a clove hitch, a half hitch, and the figure of eight family of knots should give you enough knowledge to die less. Or at least keep the mattress from flying off the top of the car on the freeway.Related: Popular:
