    Good idea. Looks like a quick and dirty way to make Roycraft "ski shoes". Takes less cordage and quicker to build.

    Dude!! You had me there. I've been a fan for a long time but hadn't seen this. I thought, "Good Ol' Lon has come a long way…." Great video…now I have to go eat my plate of crow.

    Wow!!  The snowshoes absolutely helped, and it seems like the were worth the effort to make!! I will definitely be making some for next winter!  I don't have any now, and we average 150" of snow per season here.  Thanks for the tutorial!  ~Kitty

    I came back to this one on a random surfing whim…and laughed out loud when you 'tested' to see 'how much' the makeshift snowshoes were helping you. Masterful understatement, and an excellent scientifically applied test, because you didn't just sink down and then gave up, you actually tried to go several feet to show the sheer effort involved in moving through hip-deep snow. Just looking at you struggling, I can see a lot of viewers reassessing the value of knowing how to craft makeshift snowshoes like this!

    Two questions I have:

    1) What do you do if you are in a survival situation but do not have string or paracord on you? Are there ways to improvise?

    2) How many miles are these good for walking?

    Great video. I wasn't sure about the snow shoes until you tried walking without them! Massive difference!
