This blog began the 7th of January 2014 and is dedicated to Paracord and fun (I think the two go hand in hand). I love to blog about Paracord whether it is a special product that is changing the game, a new technique or simply how Paracord can improve your life. I am all about all things Paracord. If you are interested in a fun, engaging and lighthearted blog and Paracord is a passion of yours like it is mine, come check it out!

Paracord Hose Weave
Paracord Hose Weave
The latest innovation for your Paracord
When I sit down to blog every week I try to either think of an
innovative or unknown product; or I try to find some idea or concept that is
relevant to your life that might just benefit you in some small way (the secret
is out…). After scouring the internet for new ideas this week, I believe I have
found one that will help you out. The idea is simple and not one bit
revolutionary, but it might just save you a few bucks over the years: wrap your
garden/outdoor hoses with Paracord. This is a great idea to keep in mind as
many of us are dusting off our hoses for the first time this spring.

knot itself is quite simple and can be accomplished through a multitude of
different ties including the Cobra Weave (I have included a link below to the
instructables page where user dan_w84 has wrapped a drink bladder tube), but
the concept is a solid one and holds various implications. First, it is a good way
to protect your hoses which are frequently dragged across rocks, bricks, tar,
etc. Hoses are vulnerable to being punctured and torn, particularly the thinner, more flexible
garden hoses. Second, it is an easy way to color-code your hoses so you always
know what is running to where. Lastly, (this may seem like a cop-out) but
depending on the hose and where you are using it you will have a small length
of Paracord on you, and that is always a good thing!

Short and sweet as they say, I hope
this blog gives you a little something to do this weekend that might actually
make a difference for you in the long run!
