Very happy with it Willie. With the load shareing dual axle it travels rough tracks with ease. Just finish a trip down to Victoria with a small bit of 4WD dirt driving and washouts, no worries at all.

One of the problems with this site is that people won't give you a straight answer.
They are made from (I pressume) cotton that is entwined together to form a piece of cord. They can be numerous different lengths and colours often bright stripes for the littler versions. The modern ones have the ends sealed to prevent them from fraying.
I have always used them to secure my shoes to my feet but I did use a long black one many years ago to gain access to a nightclub in Townsville one Friday night when a tie was required to be worn.
I hope I have answered your question as truthfully as I can.
Cheers

Voxson, they are the things supplied standard with shoes before your frustration becomes moribound and you turn to cable ties knowing your capability with knots.

David, good to see after earlier frustrations and little sleep, you can enter the spirit.

Mr Lexic, I see you are signing off as Desmond now. Have you given Mrs Lexic a longer handle too, rather than abbreviating it to Elaine?
Cheers,
Who?

No I have to keep her name as short as possible so that I can get a word in edgeways.
PS I only use Desmond when I want to be more formal. LOL

I guess I should be addressing letters and Christmas cards to Desmond Lexic Esq. and Mrs. Elaine Lexic, in Berri now to address the formality issue. LOL

In which case it should never be marked 'Card only' as that would tend to cheapen it all.

That address would be fine except I'm not sure the post office is aware of the Lexic's whereabouts.
I'm still waiting for the reading of uncle K's will but not overly hopeful.

3 shoe laces decide they want a beer and head of to the pub.
they find a table and sit down.
1st shoe lace goes to the bar and orders 3 beers.
the barman refuses saying we dont serve shoe laces.
goes back to the table and tells his 2 friends.
second shoelace walks up to the bar and orders 3 beers.
once again the barman refuses saying they dont serve shoe laces.
second shoe lace goes back to the table and says we might as well go home he isnt going to serve us.
the third shoe lace says give me a go.
he sdands up tall spins his lace in a neat knot like a tie and ruffles up the ends of him self.
walks up to the bar and asks for 3 beers.
the bar tended says whats wrong with you lot i told your first mate we dont serve shoelaces.
i told your second mate we dont serve shoe laces.
what dont you get your a shoe lace arnt you.
the third shoe lace says proudly no im a frayed knot.
