New Years Resolution Five Part one of twelve

So the podcast isn't ready. it's still coming but editing needs doing and I'm not good at it so it's taking longer than I'd like or longer than you'd like. We both know you're sitting there crying now you know that you don't get to hear my voice. You know it.

Instead I'm going to tell you how I'm doing with my fifth new years resolution, 'Learn something new every month.'. I'll be updating you all on how I'm doing with this (so that you can judge weather or not I need to pay charity) about this time every month with what I learned this month and what I'm going to be learning next month.

This month I decided to put a single piece of my survival gear to use and learn to tie knots. seems like a simple thing and an unnecessary thing, but it's actually goign to be useful with my camping/hiking and it's actually relatively difficult to do. At leat some of it is.
I used an app on my iPhone to learn how to tie a bunch of different knots. The app is (conveniently) called 'Knots'.
So I learned some useful knots... please don't ask what they're useful for cos... I... I really don't know.
I'm sure I'll figure it out.

So, Evidence;
Figure 8 Knot

Carrick Bend

Reef Knot

Clinch Knot

Bowline Knot

Prusik Knot

Common Whipping

So there's that.
Next month I intend to learn lock-picking. If that changes I will re-blog.
