Paracord for Survival

Updated on August 3, 2016

You Should Have Paracord with You at all Times

You may be asking me, "Why do I need to have Paracord with me all the time?" This is an easy question to answer. You never know when you are going to need some cord for something. You might need to tie something together under the hood of your car to hold it together till you can get it home or to the auto shop. You might need to tie a splint to a broken leg or a broken arm if someone has had an accident. To build onto that, you might have to cut off circulation to a wound to stop the bleeding till emergency services get there. having that cod could same someone's life.

There are many uses for this awesome parachute cord. I've seen people use it from everything from a belt to hanging food from the trees to keep animals from getting to it. I have seen people use it to fish with because they had nothing else to use. I have even heard of people taking it apart to use the inside threads as a way to mend clothes or even to stitch a wound together. This stuff is extremely versatile. Next to a way to start a fire and water, it should be something that is in your Survival Kit.

How to Make a Paracord Bracelet - Everyone Needs Paracord Sometime

You never know when you are going to need a little paracord for something. Things come up that require something to tie down with. Rope is a very important tool, almost as important as a knife. That is why I suggest you always have some with you.

This project is a great idea. having a bracelet like this means you have Paracord with you all the time. I like the fact that anyone can make their own, all you need is a little bit of paracord and a little time on your hands.

I remember growing up and watching my Dad tying Macrame. He used to make all kinds of things. He made a lampshade one time. I mostly remember him making hanging baskets for plants for the front portch. They used to grow all kinds of things.

Get Paracord on the Cheap - I Like Winning Auctions Like These.

You could go to your local Army Navy store or the Boy Scouts of America Store. I think you can even get some at Walmart. I personally like to buy my paracord on eBay. I can find some great deals on there. The more you buy, the cheaper it will be. Check out the listings below and see if you don't agree with me.

I think this is something that is important for everyone to have. You can keep 100 feet in the trunk of your car or even in your glove box. Then you will have it in emergencies. You can even keep a good bit of it on you wrist or around your waist as a belt holding up your pants. It will always be there even if you don't need it. Then you will have it when you do.
