    it may be a little like using straps or webbing on a tree instead of rope.
    a person who knows what they are doing may be able to use rope at times, on certain kinds of trees with out causing damage, but as others start doing the same, problems are sure to arise.
    don`t leave the CREATOR out of the creation!

    When I did it I had the whole second floor of the lodge to myself. The caretaker also gave me his approval. The LT shelters are a little different than the AT ones. Most of them are more like a small cabin or lodge then the standard 3 sided AT ones.

    I think that as long as you are not damaging the shelter or inconviencing anyone else, there isn't anything wrong with it. If there are other people around I would hesitate to hang there.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?
