To me as a child, pioneering were the TV shows The Rifleman with Chuck Connors and Wagon Train with Ward Bond. (Yes, I am that old.) Little House On the Prairie was too sappy. My sisters watched that.

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.
