Would you cross the Pacific on a hand-made raft? Thor Heyerdahl and his crew did in the late 1940’s to prove a theory that the South Pacific islands could have been populated from South America, not from Asia as was assumed at the time.
He recreated a potential voyage using materials and technology available in the time of pre-Colombian Peru.

A nifty article giving the history and uses of the Marchard knot. A simple way of looping a bit of rope around another rope (or a hose or the like), and using a carabiner to attach it.
Considered one of the simplest auto-jamming knots, it can be used in belaying, abseiling (rappelling), or just hanging a work light.
Knowing knots and their uses is always handy.
