I love this sight, it is so cool! I'm going to go practice. Jay if I can tie a not does that mean I can also figure out how to untie it too?

I figure if Cabin Fever gets any takers, he might need to be restrained being up there in the woods for so long.... and if he does find himself with a loop dropped on him, the site can atleast give him a fighting chance :>)

I love that site too! I was an Eagle Scout and know most of those knots, but I never got the hang of the sheepshank. This site makes it look easy! The sheepshank is a great knot for tying down a mountain of gear on a trailer or truck bed. You can pull those loops on the end to tighten the rope, it's almost as good as using those ratcheting straps. Thanks for the link! --Happy trails, CF

Thank-you so much for this site--I have been a cub scout leader and was always forgetting how to do the different knots--this will be great to practice with my now boy scout son!

Hey Jay, My stomachs is tied up in knots - could you look in the book and tell me what kind and how to untie it?

Its not knots, its butterflies from knowing all these women are here and your holding your noxious gases in out of politeness. Log off and go deep in the woods and let it rip. Men will be men :>)

Mercy Jay, thats a good way to P>O> some hunters, running off all the game. There must be a better way. Besides that, I'm not into girla,just real "wimmins". Thank I'll go fix me a tody.

I like my creative knots best. Always surprising me. Never a dull moment when it comes to tarps and breezes.
