Good one, Trek! The old "tree to fat for huggers" can be a real problem sometimes, especially in places like the Pacific NW, and others. Looks like if you have a climbing ring with you, you can handle it. Wonder if that could also be done with the rope threaded through a carabiner?
For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.
