Camping Genius: Splicing Ropes

The best way to join two ropes is NOT a square knot. So, recognizing that Pathfinders are headed for Oshkosh for the Big Camporee, let me give you a nice knot to learn - the splice. It's really not as difficult as you think.

Check out the procedure at this weblog page complete with pictures.

When you're done, your rope will be neatly connected and without the problem of jammed knots or joints that fall apart under stress. You're splice will look like this. Follow the step by step instructions on the linked page. I've included lots of pictures.
