I went back to carrying a rope in my truck a while back. It's way better than those fussy straps. Go buy yourself a nice 50' rope, keep it in your truck and get 'r done.

Ropes and straps in my box JP!

If you are not going to cut it you had better learn some special knots. Basic in the Navy taught me about 10 that I still remember and use on special occasions.

All that rope to secure down a rechargeable battery? Seems like overkill to me.

I carry a 100 ft roll of 1/4 inch cotton Sash Cord, it's been keeping the oilfields running for over 100 years. I'd haul two Trials bikes in the back of the truck plus a cooler chest using 10 ft of 1/4 inch sash cord. nylon stretches too much plus the oil breaks it down, cotton is more durable, ties better and takes the weather better.


Yes! A Weatherby does kill them deader.

I need to do a better job of learning some basic knots. My old man knows a ton of them and I need to start pay attention to him when he's doing his thing.

If you can't tie a knot, tie a lot.
