Because of the article I’ve written on my every-day carry kit as well as the How to Put Together the Ultimate Survival Kit article, I’ve had a number of readers ask me for the instructions on how to make a paracord bracelet. Like I’ve mentioned in both of those articles, paracord is such a useful tool in survival situations that you should always have some amount on hand — and there’s no better way to always have some with you than by wearing it!

Geek Crafts | Where geek and crafts collide Hello All! I hope everyone had a great holiday, and that you’re fairly recovered from all the family and excitement by now.
