Any drop zone will have a roll of parachute line for repairs and I'm sure
they would be willing to sell or give you some cord. Might have to make a
jump while you're there, though. Personally I use 2mm perlon for hiking- I
like my parachute too much to be cutting the lines. E-mail me in private
and I can find you a drop zone nearby.
