This is a hammock that can be used a food net (to keep bears away from food), fishing net, shelter, and of course a hammock.
Step 1: Matierals
200 ft of 550 paracord (will not use all of it)
Scissors or Knive
To make the survival kit you will need:
Step 2: Cutting the first set of paracord
Step 3: Hanging the strands
Step 4: Tieing the knots
Cut a wood dowel or plain wood so it is 5 in. long. This will be used to measure the legnth of the squares. Take the two middle strands on the right side then tie an overhand knot that is roughly 5 in. from the top. Then take the dowel to measure 5 in. then adjust the knot. Do this all the way across the first row.
Tip: The two very end strands will start not to be tied you will tie them every other row.
Step 5: Starting and finishing the rows
Step 6: The bottom strand
Tie the other 70 in long cord and tie so that is near the last knots you made. Then watch the video on how to tie the next knot.
Step 7: Cutting the ends
Step 8: Burning the ends
Step 9: Cutting the next set of paracord
Step 10: Making the Survival Kit
Step 11: How to do the different uses of the hammock
Hammock: Watch the video.
Back pack: When you make the back pack you put the stuff in after you clip the two side carabiners and watch the video.
Shelter: Watch the video and you need to collect a lot of weeds and leaves to put on top.
Fish net: you need to make the holes smaller so just move the knots closer together and watch the video.
Bear bag: Watch the video and if you have smaller items you need to put a blanket or towel down before you put your food down. Also use a taller tree.
