    OK...trees, terrain AND weather...madness on that left coast!!!! Bear with a broken leg sounds like trouble if you get cross ways with him.

    Kenny...The slip-knot inversion method of tying the bowline is what I first learned. Here is a video I did awhile to show that...I think this is the method you reference. I have not tied a "double bowline" using this method before...I'll have to try that. Thanks for the idea. <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/UmqXocxkAnE" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    Yeah, Jaime needs a clone of himself or two to handle all the irons he has in the fire.

    Look at the bottom of that left hand rust blob...just off to the right, about halfway down the whole bared bit of steel...looks like a crack.

    Jay, that's how I was taught to take down larger hung up trees, ones you can't rotate with a cant hook...wrap it and roll it. You have to decide if the crown will get stuck in the roll...if so you have to end up winching it out butt first. that's when cutting ALAP comes in handy, no stump to get stuck on coming backward.

    I got a little squirrely seeing the guy on the roof crouched down near the ladder...looked like a precarious place for not being tied in. I've done it but not sure if it should be shown.

    I went through all the pages...looks very good. Good pictures...like the double safeties in that steep but non-tree setting. Looks very pro. I agree with DMc about the home page:

    Jomo, your enthusiasm is good to see and I am watching along with other folks to see where this goes. I am like some of these other guys...I could definitely use a video to help understand better how it's going to work. Without a better explanation or video it's like snake oil to me. I still have not wrapped my pea-noodle sized brain around all the aspects of this. I have a rough idea and can have a blurred fantasy of how it might work but the details escape me. Sitting on the sidelines here awaiting further enlightenment.

    You stole my story, MB. A friend and I were on scuba in the Keys. I was leading the way around a brain coral, big one, maybe 15 feet diameter. As I rounded a corner I was face to face, about 4-5 feet away from a 3-4 foot barracuda. I stopped...my buddy didn't see my tail lights. He plowed into me and pushed me up nose to nose with the cuda...probably 12-18". I, too, could see the jaws/teeth working, pumping water thru his gills. It is a very malevolent sight. I 'cussed Ricky a blue streak when we got back to the boat. Of course, he thought it was funny as hell. What an A-hole...I loved him! It looked pretty much like this:

    I'll be curious about your beaver work. We have had miseries with them on our farm in S. GA. I've taken apart their dams before (with chainsaw) and they built it back in a day or two. The have created some (unwanted) great water habitat...and tunneled through dams and made horrific messes of things.

    Good demo, Nick, of the Akimbo. Slow mo worked well to show the "dynamic belay" when you let go of the device. Thanks for the show...looking forward to more!
