I really enjoy seeing what I can do with a rope. Tommie gave me an old rope and made me a new one several years ago. The old ones are easier to spin than a new rope. I always carry my ropes to an expo. I will get them out if things get slow. You will always find someone at a expo, who ropes really well. Roping is really fun. The other cool thing is that you can make a rope inexpensively.
