I got a 100' bunch of 550 paracord that was gathering dust in my still-under-construction BOB, and am learning how to use it. I got some new knots down and am learning how to wrap handles with it. It's a bit tricky at first, but easier than it looked at first glance.
I actually stumbled on a link to this site while looking through the stuff at County Comm. The link is: http://stormdrane.blogspot.com/. This guy has a lot of great info on projects and some neat tricks. For knots I actually use Wikipedia, and WikiHow if Wikipedia didn't have good instructions.
As far as the cost, I think I paid around $8 on Amazon with free shipping (it was part of an order over $25) for 100' of good 550 in Olive Drab. In my mind 550 paracord one of the best deals out there, it has more uses than anything else at thatprice.
