While your article is full of wonderful information, and may be practical, my whole sense of adventure is insulted by suggesting that I climb a tree 'securely'. LOL! I would much rather dare the scare than securely climb the pine. I relish my memory of climbing some Australian pine trees behind a hangar on the DeLand Airport when my father took me to work with him one summer. I remember swaying in the breeze with the trees and thinking I was almost in heaven! It was the next best thing to flying. I survived to learn how to fly a real airplane, but I wouldn't trade that memory for anything! "Ma"
I certainly understand you fully here, I also love to climb barefoot and enjoy the contact of the bark. Now secure climbing is related to this dark side of life called WORK. I mean, if you are to get up some 25m (75feet) high with a chainsaw and have to do it for hours on everyday it is very different from leisure climbing, I am sure you will follow me. As for flying I would definitely prefer flying with my own body than being stuck in a kind of metal box;))
