Learn to tie the Truckers Hitch by the October 6th Troop meeting, and win a prize.   Look below for the Official Video, and instructions.

The Truckers Hitch is also know as "The Power Cinch Knot", developed by truckers to tie down large loads securely.

There are several ways to end the knot.  One way has an easy release, the other is more secure, either way  is fine.  There are also several ways to tie the beginning, any of the ways are fine.

HERE is one instructional site that is helpful and HERE is another!.  There are many more online.  Below is the official music video, followed by a very good instructional video.

Bonus for those who know the most info about the knot, so research!
