O/T - Look Mom - No Hands!!

Post by Species8472 » Mon Feb 20, 2017 11:42 pm

With the recent warm weather my youngest son (a few of you met him a few years ago at Flightattendant's place in Texas) put up the slack line (1.25 inch wide ratchet strap fifty feet long slung between 2 trees) and proceeded to freak his mother out:

Cool. Years ago, my wife came screaming in the house and said "Brian is trying to kill him self in the back yard". I wandered into the back yard and shouted his name. I hear " I'm up here Dad." I looked up and there he was 80 feet up a big old cedar tree. I asked him " Whatcha doin son? " He said" Looking for deer for you to hunt." I said well... be careful climbing down, suppers in an hour. I went back in the house and the wife was waiting for me tapping her toe on the floor. (Not a good sign.) She asked me what I said to him and I replied" I raised hell with that boy! I don't think he'll ever do that again!" Mean while I'm thinkin, thats my boy. Dont have to worry about bears with those climbing skills. :lol: Your son is learning skills that will hold him in good stead later in life. Bumps and bruises are optional. :wink: Congrats on being a great Dad.

P.S Brian was seven at the time. :lol:

Outstanding, reminds me of riding are bikes down steep hills, about 40mph without hands, four lanes of traffic, gravel shoulders, and a hard right turn at bottom! :shock: WHAT FUN!!

Isn't that another version of the "Triangle of pain"? Two steep banks and a line across the top. Hope he doesn't get some things from his dad... :wink:
Good for you for letting him take some risk! He will be better prepared for life because of it

Yep , and I think I may see a 3 strand Barb-wire fence in that line of brush below him :shock: .... Oh what fun. :lol: :lol: At least at his age, hopefully he'll still "Bounce" rather than "Break" Like us old guys would. :oops:
