Hello from sunny SoCal... yeah you guys already hate me I promise I won't post on the weather check thread. I've been messing with paracord for about 2 years. It started when one of my coworkers picked up a double cobra from Survival Straps. I liked it but I didn't want to shell out the $$$ for it. A little web searching and I found instructions on Stormdrane's blog and I've been tying ever since. I usually just make bracelets but I have made other things as well. Here are some of my better attempts. My day job is doing IT support. Married for the 2nd time for 10 years. We have 3 kids, none together. She's got 2 girls 23 & 26 and I have a boy 17. He's picking up on some of the paracord stuff too which is pretty cool. Other hobbies include cars and vintage bicycles.
