The Adventures of Tree Weaver

While I was lost in the exploits of the long-dead, my colleague Weaver was having his own high-flying adventure. The nerve of that guy. With the help of a recreational tree-climbing expert, Mr. TV Photogblog ascended into the canopy of a 250 year old White Oak in Greensboro. But he wasn't hunting lost housecats. Instead, he was profiling a burgeoning pastime that has roots right here in the Piedmont. Roots...get it? Ahem, sorry - just a little jealous of my co-worker and friend, who etched a notch on his photog belt that I ain't earned yet. But all hope isn't lost, as Weave says Tobe Sherrill of Sherrill's Tree Climbing and Supply is up for taking a couple of early to middle-age news geeks back up into the leafy heights of boyhood glory. Look for it - meanwhile check out Weaver's blog for all the details...

I bet I can find a few bloggers who might like strapping you up in a tree. Takers?

How much would that cost a fella?

Thanks for your encouraging words. God know I needed it...especially this week. If there's ever an opportunity for a blogging photog convention...i'm bringing the beer.

Anyone wanna hang his XDCAM from a tree? Maybe I can use BetaCam tape.
