Sea knots

Морские узлы, 10 узлов, которые пригодятся в реальной жизни

Not many of us go hiking, climbing trees or mountains, doing other kinds of extreme tourism.

But many faced with the fact that when this happens, there is always a lack of the necessary skills for this.

One of the most useful is the ability to tie knots that are strong and suitable for each individual task.

Such skills can save lives, protect from injury, help to survive.

We read and study the selection of nodes and memorize new skills!
