I have called Carthage, Missouri my home for 16 years now.  When not working at Butterball and spending time with my family, I enjoy making para cord survival bracelets.  I became interested in them because of the many uses they have in a small comfortable bracelet.  Some uses when unraveled, are fishing line, dental floss, snares n traps, glue if melted. Tourniquet if injured or bleeding, gun slings, and many more.  Each bracelet has 9-15 feet of para cord, depending on the length n style.  I am self taught, but have had great friends along the way bring new and improved ideas for my product.  I make other products out of para cord as well and plan to continue for a long time.
