I think this was discussed before, but, has anyone ever researched any potential danger of keeping your rope in a hot car? I couldn't find any thread on it. Just curious.

And 90% of the respondents asked if the middle of the rope was marked and if so, how?

Cat pee is so nasty that even if it made my rope stronger, I think I'd still ditch my rope if my cat peed on it.

don't know what a rope in a hot car trunk leads to, but a cat on a hot tin roof leads to some serious jazzy beats

I doubt it was hot enough for any damage to be done to the rope. Probably less wear than taking it out to use on a hot sunny day.
