I dont know why chestnuts are called conkers and I am not sure if it is a general term or just a local one. but I loved picking up chestniuts and hanging them on a string and seeing if they survived as I swung it at the kids next door. . We were only about 12 and needed to see...
i like doing random things when i;m bored and today i was climbing trees. i was on a field trip to assess a peice of land for architecture and i wanted to wonder around the bushes. so i started climbing trees and started thinking about my chilhood years when i used to climb...
I grew up in western Oregon in a logging town and spent a lot of time in the trees. My friends and I built tree forts in the woods and in the front yard and often when I wanted to think I would go outside and sit up on the branch of a tree. The first time I hung out...
but I'd really love to. This shall be enlisted in my bucket list. I ought to climb a tree someday, as high as I can. But before I do this, I must plant my trees first. Call me naive, but I'm gonna build a forest of some kind.
My dream is to go to a rain forest and climb those trees!! I want to be able to sleep on the limbs. I want to climb all the way to the tippy top and look out over the rich, lush, green canopy. I want to feel the sun and hear the birds and inhale everything about...

i always love heights and trees swinging upside down 20 feet in the air climbing up atree as fast as i can i love climbing trees its so exhilerating looking down and seeing how high up you are but still trying to go to the top and once you think u cant climb anymore get on the...
Wow, this takes me back!! I havent climbed a tree since childhood, but it was one of my favorite activities!! Too chicken today. I used to climb all sorts of trees. Sycamore trees, where I would have to shimmy up to the first branch. Maple trees, elm trees, oak trees. I once...
I think it's harder near the bottom to get started, once oyu've covered the first few branches, you're off!! Until you run out of branches...then you need to get down and try the next one. I've probably climbed all the trees in the woods nearby now, which is annoying. I must find...
