Once from WI, always from WI. Did you do any rec climbing of bigger trees in WI when you were here? I don't really know of any good places to go that have bigger trees. It seems like the only big trees I see are on customers properties and they always want them cut down.
Hi Russ. I was at the climbing comp the last 2 years. Last year I volunteered as a belayer at the speed climb event. This year I was supposed to be selling food for the WAA but that portion got rained out. Were you there for the comp this year or last?
Funny thing is, I am sitting in my sisters family room in Minneapolis right now. I did a bit of climbing yesterday to fix some problem trees in my sisters yard. We also went to REI yesterday and pick up some new slings.
Actually I have been there the last four years. Two in Madison and two in Appleton. Get there on Thursday night and stay until Sunday.
I kind of make a road trip out of it. Get on the m/cycle and take my time. First year sucked because of the rain, this year was nothing like the first year. WAA is the best. Great group of guys and lots of participation from the membership.
