The rescue wasn't the smoothest either.. scary scary... but those trees are sooooo inviting.

I think we ( I ) need to have some knowledge on what trees to look out for, and even then....... may God be with you!

Tree wells are a very scary thought. I am going to rig my bindings with a release strap that goes up the pant legs and hangs out the top of my pants.
