Duct Tape: Don’t hit the trail without it

            Rating: ****

            Ever need to repair something? No need to worry if you have a roll of duct tape. I never actually realized how useful duct tape could be to make your trip a whole lot easier.

            This article explains hundreds of ways you could use duct tape in the wild or on a trip. It goes from the extremes of survival to just playing around with it and having fun. You could use duct tape to repair a broken paddle or patch wholes in tents and tarps. It also explains the many uses of the tape that you would never think of, for example, take a long piece and roll in length wise to create rope. Or if you feel blister coming along, place a small bit over top of to act as a moleskin to temperately prevent the blister.

            This article made me think about all the times duct tape could have helped me during this course for many different reasons. I enjoyed reading this article very much, learning all the uses of this simple piece of tape. If anyone is ever planning to go on a trip, weather on water on land, I recommend him or her to read this article and see how many uses duct tape could have to help him or her throughout the trip.
