Essential Knots for the Outdoors

  • Mar 7, 2013 · 7:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

If the only knot you know is the one you use to tie your shoes, you'll probably still make it through life.  But why not learn a few knots that make you a bit more versatile?  Learn how to hang a hammock, pitch a tent,  lash a kayak to your car, or how to moor a boat.  We'll supply the rope and teach you enough knots to sail through life. Meet at the Outdoor Discovery Center (near the fish tank) at the store.

Knots include: Half hitch, clove hitch, square knot, sheet bend, bowline, taut line hitch, slippery hitch, figure eight, and more.

    This was a little tricky for me this time....being I can't knit, it was harder than tieing a fly to a tiny hook. My stomach was in knots all night about this. :) Jeff is very patient with us.

    Jeff, Thanks for some great instruction. I was confused at times but with some practice I will hopefully have them down pat.

    Something else came up and I have to pick and choose. I am hoping there will be another event like this one.
