Looks like a great crowd
Looks like a great crowd - too bad I was tied up this weekend. Wish I could have been there.
Canteen in the tree. Old military trick for getting lines high up in a tree for an antenna. You can spin it right good and really launch it high up into a tree. The weight of the filled canteen will drag the line back down to the ground. Tie the end of the antenna to the line and haul it up into the tree.
Every once in a great while the canteen gets hung up and you can't get it down. I suspect someone knew the trick and was trying to get a high line up for a parachute or some other fly like cover.
