I bet you can haul a "bunch".
550 Paracord Cord Deployment Military Survival Bracelet
Unbraids to 10' of cord. ITs pricey for 10 feet, but it is a novel idea how to carry a little cord/line without tangles etc.
The following video shows the way we taught making a survival bracelet to our teams. This method keeps the entire bracelet intact as one cord for use later. We required two or more attached to each guy. Most just attached them to their back packs. Paracord is available for cheap at most hardware stores.

1 x Remington 870
1 x Visa card
A shotgun? Really? I was looking for someone who remembered that all individuals who stop or drive by are not your friend. But wow - a shotgun. My list only includes a Beretta 380 for firepower
a .45 and a BUG
Sweet holster - does a company make that? Or did you do that yourself? It looks great.
S&S sale out of Phoenix did the holster..their web site is down and I think they folded.
I made my own.
Just who are going to impress with that Daisy Red Rider BB gun?
On a side note more in line with my topic.
I was browsing ebay last night and found that they make Sleeping bag that is the Mylar Emergency blanket. I ordered one and handful of other stuff.
Its actually a buck, the model UNDER the red-ryder.
Man.... you could put your eye out with that thing!
BTW, About a month ago, I had a flat rear tire but I had the tools and a 17" tube, in my top case. But when I opened the packaging the tube was an 18"...:huh
So, naturally, I did what I had to do and used the 18" tube. It got me home, w/o any trouble. .
So check the tube size before you leave the store or put it in your kit.

What happened to 10cup?
I found myself 2-3' off the side of the road recently. The shoulder dropped off 50' very steeply to a creek. I spent about an hour trying to push/pull my 350lb bike back onto the road. So close, but yet so far.
I'd left home with just 40oz of water and drank the last of that a half hour before. It was 90+ degrees F. I didn't eat a bite of breakfast since I was meeting my family at the lake for lunch.
Thought about calling my wife to rescue me with the truck, but my cell had no coverage. I was wearing stiff MX boots. 8-9 miles from the nearest pavement in BFE.
It was like the Army leadership reaction course, but real life. I thought I might spend the night in the woods.
The experience taught me to bring more water, even if it's only supposed to be a short ride.
I eventually bulldogged/drug the 650 down the hill, into the creek, and back onto the road at a better place. 2 hours total to travel less than 100 yards.
I need to go back and look for the turn signal I broke off sometime. Anyone wanting to join me pm.
That doesn't sound like you had much fun. You come into a corner to hot or what?
I always have to carry my work phone (blackberry 8310) and I have put my name, address, emergency contacts, blood type, and allergy information as the banner on the main screen so any first responder / stumble upon-er will hopefully check the phone and have that info.. provided it doesn't brick in the get off.
I have no relation to the selling company, but when I did a craigslist search this product came up. Apparently, it's a paracord bracelet that has a whistle, and saw! Ad reads as follows: " Approximately 10 feet of life-saving paracord * Whistle buckle for signaling in an emergency situation * 6" survival saw contained within inner core"
"Start a fire with a fire bow
Build a lean-to shelter
Trap food with an animal snare
Catch fish with paracord "line" or make a net
Use as a tourniquet to stop bleeding or as a sling / splint"
I think this would be a very cold item to have along with or camping and survival gear. Just my 2 cents.
Here is the link.
