This is, I think, a first for this blog, but I just thought it was worthy. I want to give an endorsement to the company Camping Survival/JHL Supply for having the best prices on para-cord that I could find on the internet.
I ordered 1000' a while back and it's just the best to have it around. The stuff on their site is the real deal, with the 7 strands of 100% nylon.
And actually, I want to throw down my philosophy that every household should have a spool of this stuff. As someone who uses rope and string regularly, it's an amazingly comforting feeling to know I have a lifetime supply on hand. I just ordered some for a friend as a gift. Get yourself some!
