    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

    I never even considered leaving my climb line overnight. Rodent damage is about the most likely way a rope or any other fabric piece of climbing gear in storage will be ruined. Storage in a tree even moreso :). If I needed to re-ascend the next day, I always just pulled my throw line back in with the climb line, then reset it on the morrow. And on a couple of occasions I had that throw line chewed on, once parted completely. I think only a fool would leave their life support rope unattended in a tree for any length of time at all. Mick, old friend??? :P :D

    Not a realistic idea, imo...physics of a leaner like that pictured vs. a few lag bolts and a short length of board? No way that will hold.

    Actually, I've never quite got the high elevation/low oxygen problem many people experience. I live at only 1300 feet...I go down to under 500 feet frequently for shopping, visiting friends, other entertainment, etc., even well under 200 for the bulk, actually. I worked for 32+ years between 500 and 6500 feet, up and down by truck, often multiple times a day. Maybe that's been the magic bullet...I don't know. But I've backpacked with a 50 pound pack for several weeks straight, many times, at 9 to 10,000 feet, straight up from home without acclimatation. I've cross country skied at over 12,000 feet, steep and tough going, same deal, no accilmatation. And I'm not talking about as a youngster only...well into my late fifties, early sixties. In none of that have I ever felt any effect of altitude. None. My tiny little lady M, partner for life, I've never seen have any difficulty either...she's lived and worked and climbed and backpacked and skied right beside me for the last 4 decades. I've always wondered why we both seem to be immune to altitude issues we've seen and heard about from our peers. And I'm happy to acknowledge that 10 or 12k is a whole 'nother critter compared to +14 or 15k. Have not done that. Back to the bristlecones...:) I'd recommend the Great Basin National Park for relatively easy to get to, beautiful specimens. You can drive to about 10,000 feet early summer to early fall, then it's only a half dozen miles or so hike to the groves.

    I hear ya mang. I had to go out and finish that the job the crane went down on. Had to remotely rig a really nasty limb off next to the house and then clean the steep roof on rope while loads of wood went out. All done. Check hits my hands tomorrow. Feel bad for my crane guy. Crane still stuck there till next week when the pump arrives. Left him a message that i was able to complete the job with out him. He'll come up short what we expected to pay out, but Ill throw in some extra bones for good measure.
