    Sure shows how all the holding power is behind the new wood that compartmentalizes over the lag bolt. you can even see a gap on both sides of the bolt in the heartwood.

    Your theory sounds more plausible than mine. I thought maybe one of the three bears was so angry upon finding Goldilocks in his bed, that he threw the bed out of the window and it lodged up there.

    I share this story whenever someone says they've never found cat skeletons in trees...no...but at least one dog!

    Nice to see life back in a great old thread

    I've found a wonderful career in the trees

    My steel toe boots only need to last a few more weeks. I've been gluing them back together for a while. I was going to throw them in the trash at the end of my last day of
    Work. Now, after reading Scott Baker's idea about leaving them in a tree I have better ideas! Screwed to antree with the toes up might make an inviting nest hole

    So, you really are hanging up your boots for good. Your making me sad Tom. Are you really saying goodbye to the canopy forever?

    No...not hanging up my only pair of boots just the ones I'm required to wear at work. These steel toe boots are going away. Then I can wear boots that are comfortable and better for climbing...my Asolos
