Don't let that discourage you, there are endless e-books on knotting methods.I finally got to see Apocalypse Man today. It was pretty good. That trick with the steel wool was cool, I agree.
I also liked the homemade grappling hook. Unfortunately for me, I suck at knots.
I agree that they waited to long to BO......the producers and writers may have setit up that way. If you BO and are safe you probably would not be hit with the scenarios that the family found themselves in.Watched it last night. Pretty good but IMHO they waited way too long to BO and obviously had no planning or preps for doing it. Maybe that was the intention? :scratch
