Hey Y'all---------Ive got a situation..................some how during my last test hang, I lost my tree huggers. I've been all over the house and cant find them. (I have a vague memory of putting them some where "special") I have a trip planned this weekend-----(I use straps, marlinspike hitch and whoopies) Is there anything else I could use for tree huggers/straps? Like maybe some thing I have laying around the house? Has anyone ever successfuly used rope, with a pad to protect the trees? Any input will be greatly appreciated!
