A few simple and popular knots to use; camping, surviving, boating, and surviving from zombies and many other uses.
I would like to thank Instructables for the Red Paracord that they provided me with from the Survivor Skills Challenge. Check it out here http://www.instructables.com/contest/survival/ Mine is the Deadfall.
