    Glad you worked that out at home before you hit the open road. Thanks for sharing your trial and error, it'll probably help someone else here.

    I am a ham radio operator and have run through spools of paracord over the years putting up antennas in trees. I knew that paracord wicked water, but it just never crossed my mind when I was setting up.

    Oh well...glad I learned the lesson while still at home and not in some rainstorm back out in the woods.

    Thanks for the tips.

    Backyard testing has saved me from major discomfort on the trial. Good job.

    Cannibal,

    I don't do snow! Look at my location...Gulf Coast. When we talk about cold weather up North, we are talking about the local forecast in Birmingham.
