Having some rope is always a good thing. Different rope is good for different things. If you have a small car and live in a place where ice and snow is prevalent, then carry enough rope that is strong enough that a truck with a hitch could pull you out of a ditch.

Having rope could help in everything from making a splint for a broken leg to tying grandma to the top of the car on your way to Wally World. (Don’t write letters to us, that is just a National Lampoon’s Vacation reference.)
