    I found this in my garage, going through a 'junk bin' and I think I know what it is, but I will let you guys guess. Anyway I was thinking this would make an amazing ascender, just make it big enough to handle 11mm rope. Just seems like it would work like a dream, and not tear up the rope like the teeth grabber.

    Beginner tip: Don't leave your gear attached to your climbing rope for several days. I simply unhooked my biner, and left my complete RADS system on the rope, knowing I was going to climb the next day. Life got busy, and a few days later had time to climb. Went up and down, then when I opened my grigri, out crawls a huge spider. It just hung out in there for the entire climb! Glad it didn't come out when I was at height - let's just say i hate spiders. About had to change pants when it crawled out.

    That's terrible. Thoughts n prayers to his family. I wish we could know more details how that happened, so we can learn from it. I have a very old steel core flipline I bought from a retired lineman that I have used a few times, now I am afraid to, even though it looks solid to me.

    That can't be a real article....probably some fake site like the Onion, right? And holy crap you are a posting madman!! B) This is just a link instead of an embed because I added code at the end to go straight to the relevant time in the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=E8UqucqdP_A#t=101 ^ This is what I thought of when I saw your post count.

    Not tree climbing, but this is the most powerful vid I've seen in a long time. I certainly will think ahead & slow down a little before doing various potential dangerous jobs.:O <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/C4S0rAZypzY" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    Heg replied to a thread logs like rubber in The Logging Forum
    Every once in a while some things are difficult to find an answer via google, which is why I started this thread. And the Treehouse came through....lots of great answers. Now if anyone ever asks 'whoa, why did your axe bounce out like that', I can actually sound smart. To derail my own thread, who wears safety glasses when splitting wood? After getting hit in the face with a chunk, I always do now. I've read youtube comments from people claiming chunks piercing to the bone.

    Must be an Oak thing, as I have never experienced this with Doug Fir. Then again I don't have much experience...10 trees maybe. And Sean what is a noodle cut?

    I cut down a dead oak and bucked it up. All the logs split fine with my Fiskars splitting axe, except for the 2 logs that were closest to the base/stump. My axe bounces out like the log is made of rubber. Hoping someone can enlighten me what causes this. Thanks

    The name "Tensionless" has been deprecated. However, suggestions for some alternative, e.g., "High Strength Tie-Off", or "Multi-Wrap Anchor", have not gained favor – for the obvious reason that "Tensionless" is in widespread use. source: http://www.animatedknots.com/tensionless/

    None taken, I just appreciate the feedback, although we need a smiley for "way over my head". Bottom line, I don't know if I was really trying to 'gain' anything. I just want to be confident that it's not going to fail on me. @RopeArmour - interesting indeed. As one commenter put it, "There are MANY things that will kill you, this aint one of em ... But it makes for great intraweb arguments"

    That was exactly what I was thinking, and I don't know squat. Logically it seems like any more than 3 wraps is really not adding any safety factor, IMIO.

    Thanks for the feedback guys. I was swinging around a couple feet off the ground, and I don't think side loading will happen. The fact that it's only 15 ft up, and thus I can always see it, makes me comfortable. Every 5 ft multiplies the torque? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lLYiv0F3cSY

    Hi Treehousers Is there any danger of using this, versus a wrap 3 pull 2? I looked it up in the Tree Climber's Companion, and it don't mention either one. It's only 15 ft high, just to get to my zip line. Thanks!!:occasion5:

    Heg replied to a thread Forming an LLC in Business Management
    Just so happens I formed an S Corp via Legal Zoom with their $99 option a few weeks ago. Only took an hour of my time to answer the questionnaire. Total cost $283 which included the $100 Oregon file fee. I guess I gotta go back to see what the remaining $84 was for. Not an LLC like you asked but just sayin' I had a good experience with LZ.

I learned about tree climbing when I saw a segment on the TV show "Oregon Field Guide" that profiled Pacific Tree Climbing Institute. Shortly thereafter I did a day climb with them and had lunch in a treeboat at 180'. Been hooked ever since!
