Here’s a relatively easy way to make rope of any length and strength from common grass growing anywhere. The process is straight-forward. Rip out the grass, divide it, knot one end, then twist the two halves.
If a family needed more rope for a survival project, this technique is simple enough that the children can help. Their contribution.
And, as always, Learn, Practice, and Share.

The Ruger 10/22 is one of the most popular and reliable rifles in the marketplace … and it has been for along time. Sootch00 has reviewed, rebuilt, and re-purposed the 10/22 in several videos over the years.
Today, he’s taking the Ruger and turning it into a “tack driver” on the range. His goal is to complete this project as inexpensively as possible. So, first things first:
Do you use a ceramic rod to sharpen your knives? Have you had it for a while? Then it’s probably marked and covered by the steel removed from all those knives after many sharpenings.
With the ceramic pores filled with metal grit, the rod is a less efficient sharpener. So it’s time to clean it.
