Thanks for the link. The animatedknots site is pretty neat. I wish I had that back in my scouting days.

This is where I'm at now.

It's just a simple weave. I think for the two exposed end I will do a gaucho knot or turks head, then a monkey's fist for a lanyard.

When HB and I use to plow snow/and salt/sand for a living we loved our chains.. On our 1 ton dully dump truck (GMC)

HB drove .. I would shovel the sand/salt into the hopper..
Or would just spread it from inside the bed of the dump body..

Our gas spreader didn't always work..

A pineapple knot is nice too...
I use them when I made riding bats...
I would also use a 18 strand plait..

I use 2 books called
{Leather Braiding Bruce Grant 1950}
{How to make Cowboy Horse Gear, Bruce Grant, 1953}

back to the snow driving topic. What would you guys recommend for a snow tire. Currently my truck has P235/715R 16 on them and they are summer tread. It's a 2wd truck, should I bother replacing the front two?

I've heard good things about the firestone winterforce tires and the price is pretty good.

That's what I have on my Golf.
work great but I did high center the car on packed snow going into NYC after that stupid blizzard the other year. Don't help much if they aren't touching the ground. They have no clue how to clear snow correctly down there. My job's parking lot is a joke if they get even an inch down there.
