    there nothing worse when your out and you snap your boot lace ....................


    dont panic!!!!!.........theres an easy fix if your in woodland...........look around for an ivy vine and pick one about the same diameter as your old boot lace ..............

    clear all the leafs from the vine and thread your boot with it like a lace..........do it up like you would a normal lace and off you go ................job done .....................(dont tug on it to much ....but it will get you home)... ​

    Nettles at the right time of year make excellent boot laces, snap the nettle and you will notice some string like fibres along its length, snapping the nettle expose the ends of these fibres, peel these along the length, once you have 3 start to platt (correct spelling?) them together as you would a girls hair, once one is becoming too short add another in with it and carry on! this should make a nice strong string like lace, 3 sets of these then platted together in the same way will make an even stronger string/rope.
