    Yep Dave...two. my true Browning from approx 1970 and my Dad's Norinco Chinese knockoff version. Nice Steven. A buddy of mine had a Fox Stevens over under when we used to hunt ducks before classes at GA Tech. Just before daylight one the morning I saw him drop it in a Beaver Creek with his flashlight as he almost fell off a log we were crossing. The flashlight was shining on the shot gun about 5 feet under water. It was probably 25 degrees and he stripped down to his underwear and went in and got that shot gun. We heard the ducks fly over and land nearby as he was in the water getting the gun. He took it out , used his clothes to dry it off and we hunted ducks after that. We got a mess of them for Thanksgiving dinner that year. I bet he kept it forever.

    Since I am cleaning the 12ga's from tonight..... Here is my ol friend Remmy 1100 trap with a fixed full choke barrel. Bought her used a while back. Kinda fell in love with her classic loom and stock grain. Great shooter. Might put a different barrel on her so i can change the choke. Wont take a 3"mag, so her duty is limited. Every beginner shooter that has tried her has upped thier score from what ever they were shooting first time out. Something about her.....

    I, too, am pure! :D "Ground" is roots, rocks, roughage of all sorts. I can't see crashing a spar on a lifeline anymore.

    With modern ropes I have always thought the could be invisible damage....inside the sheathe, from a heavy spar impact.

    Butch...thinking back...we were using 3 strand then. It was probably a pull line. But back then we pulled trees with our climb line after we rappelled down. A climb line was a pull line was a climb line....that was stupid, too.:(

    I got one of mine from Tru Trailers about 2 hours from me. They do custom builds. Might look near you and see if you have a builder/designer close to you. Like was pointed out, you know what is best for you. Little upgrades like heavier steel sides and such go a long way. I got lucky while i was scouting around and found those guys. Seen a lot of buggered trailers being towed by tree guys. Just lack of corner reinforcement at the doors or thinner steel sides. Probably just bought what looked great new, then found that tree work is hard on them.....lol

    By the way, that Dyneema Zing-It throw line from Samson Ropes is unbelievably strong stuff. I like to use the thicker 2.2 mm stuff, and I think it has a breaking strength of about 580 pounds. It might be the strongest readily available cordage that exists; maybe the rope experts on this forum can correct me if I'm wrong. I've leaned back on it once or twice, with appropriate caution, with my full body weight on it, and it did not break. Expensive, but it takes a beating and lasts a long time. So far, I've not yet retired one. Tim

    I had a treehouse for my kids...with nylon netting in the windows to prevent falling out. Squirrels definitely did chew that corded netting. Don't leave life lines in trees unattended. Uber stupid to do that. When I worked for a tree company way back we left lines in trees overnight. We were stupid...don't be that way.

    Yes, also, welcome to the TreeHouse forum, Howard! I'm not a pro tree guy like most on this forum, but I've been learning from the forums and climbing on and off when I get the opportunities for better than 4 or 5 years, I'd guess. Having said that, my impression of things is that it is considered to be a Cardinal sin to leave a life support rope in a tree overnight. I think the book answer is to buy and use the really strong throw lines, like Zing-It, for example, and tie them onto your rope as you pull your climbing rope out of the tree at the end of each day. You just have to allow the time each and every time you climb to pull them in at the beginning of the day and out again at the end of the day. I think the main fear is of rodents, as you suggested. If you start studying about SRT techniques, you can save yourself the trouble of having to isolate a branch and setting a friction saver. It makes life easier, in that way. Good luck, and thanks for becoming a member of the TreeHouse forum. Also, feel free to ask as many questions as you need to; there are a lot of very nice and helpful people here. Tim

  1. Yeah, thanks....we can all learn something if we are open to it. Brian has issues, I reckon...I'll just let him stew and work out his own way to be involved.

    I enjoy your posts...glad to have you at the House.
