More survival tips for the future


Camping Survival or surviving the dollar collapse in the near future

Paracord can be used for so many different purposes. It's incredibly strong. The military uses and trusts paracord for a variety of purposes.

Paracord is a lightweight nylon kernmantle rope originally used in the suspension lines of US parachutes during World War II. Once in the field, paratroopers found this cord useful for many other tasks. It is now used as a general purpose utility cord by both military personnel and civilians. This versatile cord was even used by astronauts during STS-82, the second Space Shuttle mission to repair the Hubble Space Telescope.

The braided sheath has a high number of interwoven strands for its size, giving it a relatively smooth texture. The all nylon construction makes paracord fairly elastic, which Sciacca noted can make it better for some uses, but less effective for others. When circumstances require it, however, the product has proven to be an indispensable asset.

"People are keeping paracord among their essential items to take on a wilderness adventure or any other excursion in the field," he said. "It's good for camping, tent lines, boating, halyard lines and a hundred other uses."

And because the Mil Spec 550 paracord is made to Mil-C-5040 specifications (7-strand core), the removable inner strands that can be used for fishing line, sewing thread, tripwire, nets, traps and other emergency and survival situations. Other benefits are that the nylon cord dries quickly and is mildew resistant. And despite being just 1/8 inch in diameter, the Mil Spec 550 paracord is rated for 550 lbs.

People should always keep a generous length of paracord in their emergency kits and "go bags," in the event of an emergency. Should a natural disaster strike, a family that must either hunker down or evacuate quickly will be thankful to have a strong, versatile item like paracord close at hand.

13 Ways to Paracord Power

For those of you who have no idea what paracord is (and I didn't up until a year or two ago), it's like the duct tape of the fiber world. Paracord is nylon rope that was originally used in parachutes in World War II, which is where the name came from (originally it was parachute cord). Now it is a versatile utility cording that is still used extensively in the military, but is also gaining in popularity for personal use. Military-grade paracord is so useful that it deserves a Spin so those without military connections can learn about and make use of this great material.

Military-grade paracrod comes in six different types. We're going to focus on the best quality one that is most readily available to civilians: a variation of the military Type III paracord frequently called Mil-spec 550 paracord. Construction of 550 paracord is done by taking seven two-ply threads of nylon and wrapping them in a shell braided from 32 nylon strands. This composite construction gives paracord a tensile strength of 550 pounds (the outer sheath with the seven internal threads removed has a tensile strength of 200 pounds). Not only that, but paracord is mildew and rot resistant, and it's only 1/8" thick, making it great for a variety of uses. Here are some examples of the uses of paracord, many of which focus on its use as a tool to help you survive if you get lost hiking, or otherwise find yourself in a survival situation:

1) Bracelets, belts, and lanyards: Braiding objects with paracord that you have on you all the time is a great way to keep a little safety around your waist or wrist. If needed, say to tie down a load on the roof of your car, all you need to do is unweave the bracelet and voila! You are ready for the task at hand! This is especially useful for camping and hiking, where you can wear some safety on you so it doesn't take up room in your pack.

2) Dog collars and leashes: You can braid great custom dog leashes and collars out of paracord; paracord's strength and rot-resistance make it ideal for this purpose.

3) A saw: That's right! By pulling on a length of paracord fast enough to create actionable friction, you can saw some things in half, such as two-inch wide tubular webbing! Check out this brief video from Estela Wilderness Education, LLC for a demonstration.

4) Catching food: Paracord is so versatile it can be used to catch animal food, big or small. You can cut a length of paracord and remove one of the internal two-ply threads for use as fishing line, or use the in-tact cord for animal snares and traps.

5) Useful thread: The internal threads are also thin enough to sew on loose buttons or torn seams in clothing or tents, and even as dental floss.

6) Camp construction and utility: In any sort of camping situation (intended or not) paracord has too many uses to mention. Because of its strength and rot resistance, it can be used for things like pole lashing, pulling logs, hoisting food into trees for protection, and for guy strings and shelter ridge lines for tents or temporary shelters.

7) Making fire: Since paracord itself is nylon it won't burn for you but it does catch heat so it can be used as tinder to light larger pieces of kindling. And, you can use paracord as the necessary string in a bow-drill, a very basic and primitive way to make fire if needed. Here's information on making and using a bow drill from Nature Skills.

8) Medical emergencies: In the unfortunate instance that you get hurt while camping or hiking, paracord can literally save your life or the life of a friend. It can be used as a tourniquet, a sling, or to lash splints together on a broken limb. You can even string the paracord between two sapling trunks to make a stretcher of sorts.

9) Automobile fix: No, really! You can take 550 paracord and use it as a temporary replacement for something like a fan belt. Just be sure to knot the cord every few inches, otherwise the slippery nature of the cord will cause it to slip off.

10) Rappelling: No, paracord is not great as a regular climbing rope, but in an emergency situation you can rappel or otherwise haul your body weight with 550 paracord (provided you don't weight more than 550 pounds).

11) Woven items: With enough skill you can weave things from paracord such as water bottle holders, fishing nets, bird nets, or other traps.

12) Pulley systems: Around the house or in the woods, having a good block and tackle pulley system can allow you to haul and lift weights much heavier than you could without pulley assistance; paracord is great in pulleys.

13) Weaving rope: If paracord isn't strong enough for you, you can use it to braid even stronger rope for hauling or pulley purposes, such as to remove a stuck vehicle. This is an option if you are in a situation where you don't have proper rope available.

Use paracord as shoe and/or boot laces also.

Nylon itself holds up well in UV. The colorants add an extra element of UV inhibitors as well. All of these factors add up to a U.V. resistant cord, however everything will eventually break down in the sunlight. Colors fade and strength is ultimately reduced when exposed to direct sunlight. This is true with all fibers, however nylon does hold up a bit better than others.

This paracord is ideal for camping, boating, crabbing, indoor or outdoor clothesline, halyard line, garden line & any other uses requiring great strength & durability.

A quote from the manufacturer about this item:

550 Paracord which is the commercial version of the mil-spec Mil-C-5040 cord. Your 100’ & 50’ coil label refers to it as “military style”- which is a common description, but can be mis-interpreted. We also make the mil-spec cord & make it to the military spec & sell most of that to the military. However, some of it is also sold in the commercial market. It also tests 550 lbs, but is made from more expensive yarns & therefore is a higher priced item. When we are selling either, we always clearly label it either 550 Cord or Mil-C-5040 Cord.

This is a problem that is not limited to just us. This confusion is experienced by all of our competitors that make either of the cords too. The real shame is that not all of our competitors produce a quality commercial cord that tests 550 lbs. Some use inferior raw materials & just try to undersell everyone else."

(Now more than ever its a good idea to try to be prepared. Its not going to be good for most people. Sooner or later its going to crash and burn. It will help for you to be prepared for what could happen in the future.) Story Reports

Bishop Robert E Smith Sr, founder and Sr Pastor of Word of Outreach Christian Center in Little Rock, AR, teaches from 1 Samuel 8:4 to explain how President Barack Obama is what the people of God wanted just like they wanted a King instead of God so they got Saul. The day Obama became President was the worst day in American history. Go to www.totaloutreachforchrist.com and www.christmvp.org for more info

1 Samuel Chapter 8 (Original 1611 KJV Bible)

CHAP. VIII.

By occasion of the ill gouernment of Samuels sonnes, the Israelites aske a King. 6 Samuel praying in griefe is comforted by God. 10 Hee telleth the manner of a King. 19 God willeth Samuel to yeeld vnto the importunitie of the people.

.......

1 And it came to passe, when Samuel was old, that he made his sonnes Iudges ouer Israel.

2 Now the name of his first borne was Ioel, and the name of his second, Abiah: they were Iudges in Beer-sheba.

3 And his sonnes walked not in his wayes, but turned aside after lucre, and tooke bribes, & peruerted iudgement.3

4Then all the Elders of Israel gathered themselues together, and came to Samuel vnto Ramah,

5 And said vnto him, Behold, thou art olde, and thy sonnes walke not in thy wayes: now make vs a King to iudge vs, like all the nations.5

6 ¶ But the thing displeased Samuel, when they said, Giue vs a King to iudge vs: and Samuel prayed vnto the Lord.6

A king described.

7 And the Lord said vnto Samuel, Hearken vnto the voyce of the people in all that they say vnto thee: for they haue not reiected thee, but they haue reiected mee, that I should not reigne ouer them.

8 According to all the works which they haue done since the day that I brought them vp out of Egypt euen vnto this day, wherewith they haue forsaken me, and serued other gods: so doe they also vnto thee.

9 Nowe therefore hearken vnto their voyce: howbeit, yet protest solemnly vnto them, and shew them the maner of the King that shall reigne ouer them.9

10 ¶ And Samuel told all the words of the Lord vnto the people, that asked of him a King.

11 And hee sayd, This will be the maner of the king that shall reigne ouer you: Hee will take your sonnes, and appoint them for himselfe for his charets, and to bee his horsemen, and some shall runne before his charets.

12 And hee will appoint him Captaines ouer thousands, and captaines ouer fifties, and will set them to eare his ground, and to reape his haruest, and to make his instruments of warre, and instruments of his charets.

13 And he will take your daughters to be confectionaries, and to be cookes, and to be bakers.

14 And he will take your fields, and your vineyards, and your oliue-yards, euen the best of them, and giue them to his seruants.

15 And he will take the tenth of your seed, and of your vineyards, and giue to his officers, and to his seruants.15

16 And hee will take your men seruants, and your mayd seruants, and your goodliest young men, and your asses, and put them to his worke.

17 Hee will take the tenth of your sheepe, and ye shall be his seruants.


18 And ye shall cry out in that day, because of your king which ye shall haue chosen you; and the Lord will not heare you in that day.

19 ¶ Neuerthelesse, the people refused to obey the voyce of Samuel; and they said, Nay, but we will haue a King ouer vs:

20 That we also may be like all the nations, and that our King may iudge vs, and goe out before vs, and fight our battels.

(In the end saul kills himself because of his wounds. Obama is a coward unlike king saul.

I do think obama is similar to king saul of the bible. Saul was what the people wanted as king. He was a total failure like obama. They are very similar in that both were not qualified for leadership. Both are deceivers. Both led to the destruction of their nations. Both were self deceived.

Is American under judgement. Yes.) Story Reports

Job 39

13 Gavest thou the goodly wings unto the peacocks? or wings and feathers unto the ostrich?

14 Which leaveth her eggs in the earth, and warmeth them in dust,

15 And forgetteth that the foot may crush them, or that the wild beast may break them.

16 She is hardened against her young ones, as though they were not hers: her labour is in vain without fear;

17 Because God hath deprived her of wisdom, neither hath he imparted to her understanding.

(Bishop Robert E Smith Sr talked about the ostrich. He quoted the bible verse: "Because God hath deprived her of wisdom, neither hath he imparted to her understanding."

When I read that I thought of the 47% who voted for obama, a type of king saul, and thought of how similar they are. They are deprived of wisdom and lack understanding!) Story Reports
