    Excellent point @UncleMorgan. Morse code knowledge is not just sending but receiving also.

    Hopefully you will contribute more. I am printing off that dehydration one and putting it in the company safety manuals. It is a clearly written sheet that the field should be able to understand.

    Only comment on rules of gun safety, knowing what is behind target is either a 5 th rule or more development is needed on 4 th. People have had a bad habit of missing and destroying things beyond the target. Really hate to be collateral damage, could ruin your whole day. I never saw the modified square knot used for hand cuff. Thank you.

    UncleMorgan I eat vegetables. My friends are not vegetables.

    Hah! Yes, indeed!--An excellent knot to know. It hasn't been six months since I taught it to my grandkids, along with the trick for breaking out of duct tape and zip ties.

    The handcuff knot (as shown) is still "unlocked"--it needs tying off.

    Your guest should have his (or her) hands tied tightly behind the back. Houdini did a lot of escaping and got rich and famous because most of the people that tied him up were slackers.

    Lock the handcuff knot with a tight square knot. Then lock the square knot by tying a tight stop knot (one overhand knot) in each tail of the rope hard up against the square knot. That will keep the square knot from being loosened.

    Then you can run the ends of the rope down to the person's ankles (with their knees bent) and repeat the handcuff knot for a good old fashioned hog-tie.

    If you want them walking, run each of the loose ends up their spine, once around the throat, and finish up with another stop-knotted square knot

    Then tie off the loose ends of the rope where your guest cannot reach them., same as with the hog-tie, or just use them as a single or double leash.

    That way your quest can walk with you and enjoy all the new scenery when you take the bag off their head.

    BTW: The much-praised bowline knot is not good for locking the handcuff knot because it's hard to tie in a line that has to be kept tight.

    Note that with a stop-knotted square knot, the handcuff knot can be loosened a tiny bit if necessary without removing it. Just loosen one stop knot, and then feed a very small amount of slack through the square knot.

    Necessary is not determined by discomfort--it's normally indicated when the singers start turning blue and the rope is almost submerged by the swelling.

    For those in the hills and fire danger areas. Make sure your BOL in the woods is protected.

    Very true @UncleMorgan I noticed the golf club beside him. Error by whoever made that meme.

    You are welcome. Add all you want. I have a binder that I print off and add informative posters to. Info memes are the best IMO

    Nice little acronym for a part of situational awareness.
    I should walk around chanting...
    That might get me free room and board at the nearest looney bin.
  12. This is a great thread. Has value absolutely anywhere (everywhere). I live in town, my road is 1/2 mile long.. Might use Xeroxed copies of this to start a neighborhood watch program.

    It is all @Motomom34 fault .... I can't stop this from going through my head. It is now the song of the day for me.

    I can't fight this feeling, deep inside of me...

    For those who recognize the pattern and lyric...

    I think it's more along the lines of "Ooka ooka ooka chaka, ooka ooka ooka chaka".

    How far we have fallen. Well it was a pretty good run up until 1916 - Thanks Woodrow, Franklin, Lyndon, Jimmie, Barry. I guess we shouldn't forget Harry, Dick and Teddy.
