Living in a Tree

 When i came to California, I had one thing i wanted to do. Live in a tree. A new friend named erik told me i could build one on his property up in the hills just outside of Santa Cruz. I went up a few days ago and found a tree. The one i chose was all the way at the top of the hill, in the middle of no where, with a view out into a Valley. The sun sets right on the other side of the hill.

Mike hooked me up with a kick ass hand saw and erik let me borrow a hammer. In three days i got the platform built and ready for plywood.

Today i sat up on that platform for hours. eating an orange and soaking up the warm breeze. STOKED! Erik came up to check it out. And then he told me it was on his neighbors property!!! We had a laugh and then i tore it all down. It came down kinda quick, which makes me question how strong it actually was. I found a new tree and started over. Excited that i have a little practice now.. the new one will be even better.

Adios tree. it was fun while it lasted.
