The Back Road Journey Belt uses 100 feet of paracord for the main weave AND uses 4, 12 feet long cords for the core. Start the belt by finding the middle of the 100 feet cord. Center it next to the buckle. Next, use one of the 12 feet cords and secure the 100 feet cord by make a cow hitch. Repeat with the other cords. With the 100 feet working ends, start the Back Road Journey pattern.

I started using these two styles paracord storage devices for almost a year; white spool and black winder. Both have their advantages and disadvantages. Each style can hold up to 100 feet of cord. Both are easy to wrap with cord. When unraveling cord, the white spool is easier to work with. The white spool can have sharp edges and and make small cuts in your skin while winding the cord. both are affordable storage solutions. You should buy them for yourself and see what works for you!

* 3 feet paracord
* 2 x 1 feet micro-cord
* 2 x Rubber Eye Glass Connectors
* Cord Stopper
I started with 3 feet of paracord and cut the ends at an angle and singed the ends. Next, I threaded the angled ends through the cord stopper.
The rubber eye glass connectors were purchased from Amazon.com. Each connector was threaded with paracord to roughly the one inch mark. A one inch bend was made and micro-crod was wrapped near the connectors. I used west-country whipping to secure the paracord ends. Once secure, I cut the paracord ends straight to give them a more polished look.
