The other night I was harassed by a cop for wearing a paracord bracelet. Taunts of "What do you need that for?" And "Are you afraid you'll get lost here in McDonalds?" etc. Later this fine officer of the law stopped me while walking home and made it a felony type stop. Two more officers showed up to render assistance. I'm not going to get into the survivalism thing and how people look for telltale signs of such activity. I now sport one on each wrist and one on my ankle in case Officer Friendly ever stops me again and frisks me. Probably childish to add fuel to his fire, I realize this, but everyone needs a hobby. The incident got me to thinking, How could I carry at leat minimal gear on my wrist without drawing undue attention? My solution was quickly arrived at and uses up those shot bits of paracord left over from projects like bracelets etc. First remove the inner strands which would be useles anyway, and tie one end in one of those decorative knots I can never figure out how to duplicate despite a hundred Youtube videos. Next you'll need a straw, preferably a clear one, that you can force inside the outer sheath. We all know how to burn the ends closed but for this project I would suggest a heated curved forcep. This should make insertion and withdarawal easie. Now I had thought of one long compartment straw like in the Wazoo bracelet but considering the curve of the wrist on the sides this could cause weakness and breaking if the straw, so I'm thinking of making mini compartments with the forcep. My design include waterproofed paper matches, not wooden and a striker, monofiliment, a small fish hook, split shot, petro balls, perhaps a micro firesteel and striker, water purification tablets, personal meds, triple antibiotic, salt and whatever can be made to fit. Insert and tie a small loop in the other end. This design is very thin and hopefully discreet unlike the standard bracelet. It could even be worn next to the watch for further camouflauge. I'm looking for opinions and suggestions on this project before attempting it. What have I missed or not included in it? Strengths or weaknesses? Thanks in advance.
