Thought of you when I saw the weather map. Nothing like breaking in the new tent. The nice thing about the internet - sharing. has some stop animation on tying knots. Click on the scouting tab at the top.

There are a few knots I don't like:
"You're NOT wearing that!!"
"You are NOT going for a drink!"
"You are NOT going ANYWHERE till you finish that shelf!"

After thirty-nine years from being out of the Service I still use the timber hitch, the clove hitch, the bowline and it's variations and the square knot.

If you can teach the boys those knots and hitches, blindfolded they will be way ahead of everybody else.
