Paracord Projects for Camping and Outdoor Survival
When you spend time in the outdoors, you never know when your life could be hanging by a thread – or, far better, from a length of paracord. In Paracord Projects for Camping and Outdoor Survival, outdoorsman and author Bryan Lynch shows you more than 60 ways to put strong, versatile and portable paracord to good use whether you’re in camp or in trouble. The 248-page manual starts out with the basics, including a refresher on necessary outdoor knots and a lesson in fusing cords together. Next Lynch delves into a compendium of useful paracord projects, from making a multi-tool pouch to crafting paracord fishing lures, building a bola and starting a fire. He ties into health emergencies with instructions for making a paracord tourniquet and even sutures for stitching up wounds. And he covers camping with how-to’s on hanging food out of predators’ reach, building a camp chair and bed, and laying out a security perimeter. You’ll even learn how to use paracord to cross a frozen body of water, gauge water depth, and navigate with DIY pace count beads. You’ll be a paracord pro in no time!
