    Looking forward to your video!
    If you look close at the tree that strap is on, it has no top. I was all hung up on it on Friday and then someone else noted it. I switched trees and we got permission to remove the dead one. Saturday we had a small circus on how not to remove dead trees and have the tops come straight down on the clowns in the circus. After the addition of the strap we were able to get the tree to a safe elevation.

    You just have to laugh. Life is a circus. Enjoy the show

    I haven't had chance to see the videos yet. But I have to establish my he-man status for the weekend. So far, I officially fractured my knee and a tear of one of the outside ligaments. Will have more info later.

    I have to apologize. I fumbled the video of your setup, which was very good I thought. Somehow it did not save to the camera when I was doing the show and tell.

    Wow. It didn't seem like the fall was that hard. Just goes to show what can happen when unnatural twisting force is applied to the human body. You really didn't let on that it was that injured. Good luck on your recovery.
