rent-ur-car?

We're headed to the Bugs for 10 days from Aug 24-Sept 3rd. Rather than give big car rental companies a sizeable chunk of our money we thought we'd put out an offer of 300$ for the use of your car.
Please Private Message me if you are interesed.

KNOT this!

Because I don't have double 8's, I was thinking about getting 60m of static 5mm cord to shove in my pack. On rappels I usually use an overhand knot but was curious if, when using different diameter ropes, an overhand loses it's strength? If so, is there a better knot to use that won't slip or lose s...
