The rope is fine. If I live close to you I would tie it to the bumper on your truck and rip it off with the Burb. http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r47/thewhitewhale92/f4e83c59.gif

That is if I can tie the knot right. http://i1220.photobucket.com/albums/dd448/NorthportTroller/Smileys/laugh.gif http://i752.photobucket.com/albums/xx163/bobkyle2/dumb/picard.png
