Just read in the paper that the Victorian Tree Climbing Championships are on today at St. James Park in Hawthorn. 8.00am to 5.00pm, I guess only the injured would be interested as everyone else will be climbing on such a great day, (or driving kids to sport) :-(

Buried somewhere on the forums is a link I found to a wacky tree climbing website. A kid I went to school with was standing on a skinny little branch at the very top a huge pine tree in Kew when it broke under him, I remember seeing him cartwheeling down the main trunk and bouncing off all the branches on the way down - which actually saved his life. Pretty messy though.

Ever since then I've struggled to fully understand the treeclimbing thing. Each to their own I guess.

Someone was rostered on this weekend from my work to go and photograph the whole crazy tree climbing championships.... aaaah, if it weren't for local newspapers where would these things get a run!? heheheheeh

It just occured to me, if you're interested, go to www.newsphotos.com.au and type in tree climbing and look at the photo's.
