    I love trees, and I love climbing them.

    Preferably wide, deciduous trees like oak, maple or beech. I love my beeches!I like wearing fingerless bicycle gloves and Vibram FiveFingers shoes when I climb. Then I don't have to be so careful with my palms and soles. Climbing with bare hands and feet is good too, of course...
