Glad to hear about you getting back into the canopy @Burrapeg . The past year and half has been a blur for me. I work at a non-profit and we saw a unprecedented demand for services due to the pandemic and corresponding economic fallout. Because of that I haven't had much time to climb or produce videos. Now that things are normalizing again, I hope to get back in the saddle more often.Love that Poison Ivy! Always inspiring footage, BobBob. Cool that you scored a Bennett Hook. I think it probably works a lot better than my homebrew version. I made mine using links of big roller chain, and thus it will bend in either direction. This means my hook had to be oriented straight up instead of sideways away from the direction the device bends around the limb. This makes mine somewhat harder to snag when throwing the line towards it, and also the connection a bit iffie even when snagged. One tiny advantage, which is admittedly of limited value, is that I can carry additional links of the roller chain, a pair of needle nose pliers, and extra small cotters, and customize the length on the ground ahead of time, to suit the average size of limbs in a particular tree. I have done it enough times that adding or removing links is less of a PITA (as long as I don't drop the little cotter pins and loose them in the clutter underneath the tree!). Incidentally, I was loading up for a climb today when I came in and saw the email notice of your vid. I have not climbed in a month or more now and I wanted to celebrate in one of my favourite trees since today is the end of my two week stint following my second shot of Moderna. Yes! So glad to get that behind me. I am grateful so many of us made it through this awful time so far.
