Hi Gents & Ladies,
I've been making some changes to my setup lately and I find myself in need of some advice.
I generally run a continuos ridgeline, partly for convenience and partly for perceived safety. It's the safety bit I want help with.
Since I started sleeping under tarps I have been using strong lines for the ridgeline, thinking that if a branch was to drop during the night I would be more protected. It has recently occured to me that this may not be true. Hive mind, please advise me....
Also, I do check trees to see if they're alive and to check for widowmakers, but I believe there is still as chance of a branch falling. Is this true?
