First flip the shorts inside out while the are still on your legs(they will now be upside down as well). Next, slide the shorts/pants down pulling the rope through the legs so none of it extends out through the waist. Now rotate the shorts/pants around the loop feeding rope into one leg and out the other until you get to your body then pull one leg over your body and pop out through the waist.Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8581245245830882137.post-63621791825114090542008-06-21T15:52:00.000-07:002008-06-21T15:52:00.000-07:00Yea, that is pretty much the way to go :)Yea, that is pretty much the way to go :)Vrungelhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/01947434088779786259noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8581245245830882137.post-46771224832129207842008-06-21T15:51:00.000-07:002008-06-21T15:51:00.000-07:00Thanks for the reference!
