    Exactly what I was thinking. I don't carry throw line in the tree. I got this (probably croquet ball) for 25 cents about 30 years ago. It's only smacked my helmet a few times.:D Here is an awful quality video of using the throwball to set a pull line for a top. I can advance my climbing line approx 15-20 feet by using the ball on the end of the climbing line..don't have to mess with any throwline in the tree. . . . <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/lMEGkBWEyNw" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    haha...Mick knows! When people ask how I'm going to take down a tree I'll usually tell them I'll know when I get to the top. Best laid plans usually change as one nears the top. And when you said this: Take your climbing line with you, not just two lanyards. Climbing up on spurs is lots easier than down. Use the lifeline to come down. And if you do get hurt up there you don't want to have to spur down. It's called a life line for a reason. Have fun. I do trees like that sometimes...good way to practice different techniques.

    Great intro there, Dalton. Looking forward to seeing what paths you steer this crowd down. Only takes a slight nudge sometimes to get a fine ball of ......... rolling along. Post your questions, pictures, etc. and let's see what occurs.

    Be sure your spurs don't point towards something you don't want to spur...like your other foot in case you gaff out. Don't take real high steps with gaffs...that can be a good way to endanger your other leg. You are gonna gaff out...it's just a stumble, doesn't have to be a big deal.

    I am bat-shat crazy watching out for my boys. BUT...when Hayden was about 18 months and my wife was "handing him off to me" we had a near catastrophe. As I drove up and parked my truck I had to adjust near a curb. She saw me stop and thought I was parked...didn't realize I was going to get closer to curb. She thought the danger was over and let her guard down. Hayden ran to my truck while I was looking to the rear to gauge how to move truck. By the time I turned around he had disappeared below my sight line of the truck. You can't avoid what you cannot see. Long story short we almost had a tragedy that day. I still get PTSD thinking about it. Don't take NOTHING for granted when it comes to kids. Lots of kids get killed that way...they call it the "Bye-bye" syndrome. You can google it...awful stuff.

    But you have to really trust the people that you give the link to. If they forward it to someone else that you don't know and that person forwards it also, it could be out there on the web without you wanting it to be. Once the link is unintentionally "out there" you have lost control of it. You have the most control with the private link.

    Paul... I have a lot of videos that are "unlisted". For an unlisted video you have to give the person the link then they can see the video. Supposedly it cannot be searched for and found... the link has to be provided to the person. As I understand a "private" video you have to have a list of email addresses that are allowed to watch it. That puts more work on you trying to keep a list of who is allowed to watch it. I choose the option "unlisted" for videos I do not want to be public. And give each individual person that link in a private message or email.
