@DaveBaldwin - I'll admit I've had a core-shot rope in the back of my car for too long, so this is a good reminder to put it to good use! 

In the past, friends and I have made them into welcome mats and dog leashes, though @hikermor and @Kb9nbd's suggestions of donating them to local rescue organizations are amazing ideas as well!

Let us know what you end up doing with yours. I'm sure with some creativity the possibilities are endless!
