How to be an Excellent Climber---from the Groundie

Tom Dunlap

Here from the beginning
#1
Time to hear from the others.

Sean chumed the waters:

I nominate you to start the Groundie's/ Owner's Guide to an Excellent Climber.
I'll get you started.
#1 Groundies can't read a climber's mind.
#2 Remember, brush is heavy; wood is heavy. Climber's get to use gravity to their advantage oftentimes, whereas Groundies more often have to work against it.
#3 ...you're up!

Don't drop things on me

#10 at least one form constant communication, no mp3 players, eye contact, verbal, or hand signal
#11 roll up own rope, carry own gear if ground crew is occupied
#12 don't leave job site for snacks, lunch, soda, or water, bring your own.
#13 If any clean up isn't done help, chip brush or move wood once out of tree

#21. Look around the tree real good while you are up there and have the view. We will help when we can but don't count on us to spot work you need to do.

#19. Give us a warning every time something is coming out of the tree.

#27. Don't ever 'assume' you know where we are. Talk to us.

Blinky.

I chewed while climbing for about a week. I got into the habit of yelling headache everytime I spit, my crew then asked me to stop chewing while climbing because they kept getting chew all over their hands from picking up brush I had spit on so I stopped.

I also spit once with my visor down. You can guess what happened. As you can tell, I'm one of them smart kids you see on the tv

#663- buy the crew lunch once a week!
