    2000 ft of 750 Mil Spec paracord

    So I won 2nd place in the Survival Blog writing contest last month. I am now a lifetime Diamond Member of MyFrontSight in Nevada. (Cool but pretty useless.) Also an emergency kit, gift certificate to some solar stuff (very cool), and some other stuff. But the most exciting thing is two 1000' spools of this paragord stuff is on the way to the farm. One spool in mixed camo, the other in neon orange.

    Now. I ask you folks. Just what does one do with 2000' of Mil Spec paracord? I see that I could make a hammock out of it but as the heat index here in Mississippi is about 115 or so, I have no desire to retreat to a hammock.

    Thoughts?

    You may not know what to do with it now but I guarantee you'll figure out all kinds of uses once you get it.

    Carry some in get home bags or just in the truck for starters.

    First you have to give up. First you have to know, not fear, know that someday you're going to die.

    Excellent question,

    What I would do is use the Paracord to string up confiscated cowbells from drunk Mississippi State Students after I bop them on the head to shut up their incessant bell ringing rituals at football games.

    But that's just me.

    Your friend

    Make stuff for the members of the armed forces over in the sandbox. Bracelets, pace counters.... you know, that kind of stuff.
    Keep calm and try setting SCE to AUX.

    I can tell you what not to do with it....

    Do not let one side of the spool get broken off allowing the string to unspool from the end.
    Why: I have never seen the end of a spool of 550 cord in my 30+ year career...but I have seen a ton of mangled line bobbins I wouldn't touch.

    Do not cut yourself dozens of dozens of 100 foot sections and wrap them up nicely for later use.
    why: You'll always need one more than you can ever find...it'll be a foot shorter than you actually needed.

    Do not use it near high power lines...
    Why: paracord becomes conductive at about 400 volts

    Keep it away from kids and animals...unless you like rolling cord up.

    I'd say make bracelets.

    Funny that you assume I have a truck. And you are correct, Sir.

    Really? Conductive? You're funning me, right?
