Action News Primetime with John Pruitt: Georgia's Hidden Treasures

ATLANTA -- Channel 2 presents an all new Action News Primetime with John Pruitt: Georgia’s Hidden Treasures. Pruitt, along with Fred Blankenship and Jovita Moore, takes viewers on amazing adventures right here in Georgia.

First, Pruitt explores the beauty and history of West Georgia. He takes you on one of the longest tree top tours in the world. You’ll see the exciting bridges and zip line across the Snake Creek. He also shows you the area known as Banning Mills that sits beside the Snake Creek.

Channel 2’s Fred Blankenship discovers another interesting “tree” experience at Panola Mountain. Panola Mountain is designated as a national landmark; the same status awarded the Grand Canyon. Blankenship reveals where you can climb a 90 foot Southern Red Oak and have family adventures.

Jovita Moore, Channel 2’s 5 p.m. anchor, takes you to a 412-acre black lake that will take your breath away. She rides on a boat tour where you literally feel like you are floating back in primeval times.

“Reporting on Georgia's natural wonders is my idea of the perfect assignment,” said Pruitt. “It's a joy to travel to these scenic areas not only to capture their beauty for our viewers, but also to share the rich history that surrounds Georgia's hidden treasures.”

WHAT: Channel 2 Action News Primetime with John Pruitt: Georgia’s Hidden Treasures
WHO: Host: John Pruitt
WHEN: June 25, 2008, 8:00 p.m.

I was cleaning out my desk the other day and came across one of the many Treeclimbing News Letters that were written.The date was January/February 2002 for this news letter. Joe Maher was our editor and because of him and his consent pressure a news letter existed for a few years and it was good.He did most of the work from writing to printing and all in between. I wrote a few times and one article in vol 3 issue 1 was about treeclimbing and how the sport is so new but how everone that does climb loves the sport. That was six years ago and not much has changed but one thing is for sure,someone else will be leading the way in the future.We now have many more trained climbers and its spreading into many new areas. Abe and I have had a good run but its time to move aside and let the younger climbers take the lead. Thanks to everybody who has helped us thru the years --- And thanks to Abe for being the best friend ever.

David "Hunabku" Obi Jr., put together about 18 minutes of his video from the January 2008 expedition to Bocas del Toro, Panama. This is what we found on January 10, after leaving Atlanta where it was 26 degrees Fahrenheit. Five hours and 2,100 miles farther south we landed in a tropical paradise with hot latin nights and warm blue waters…!

Well, I was reading old postings and saw this one about "Let's all Moving South."
You better reconsider that idea - It has been 100 degrees or higher every day for the last two weeks here and Summer has not been started yet for at least two more weeks!

It is definitely no fun climbing or doing anything outdoors for that matter under this weather conditions.

hot, Hot, HOT and HOTTER!   Cry

Hi All Tree Climbers,

At this time we are reviewing the areas that we can climb in. We have several new areas that we can climb in and some that we will have to move away from. Some of the new areas will include the Wolfden Climbing Area, White Candle Climbing Area, TP Climbing Area, and Mountain Creek Climbing Area. This is exciting because we have never had designated climbing areas before for a gathering or program of any type regarding tree climbing. We will still have the Hendricks Tree, Melissa, The Tower, and the Large Group Campground to do workshops and to climb.
 
We are still considering some other areas, but we have a mulit-recerational park and have to be considerate of those groups as well. We have some additional rules and regulations that will be announcing (such as everyone must wear a helmet and use cambium protector/FS). All climbers need to have a brief (5 to 15 minutes long) orientation, complete all paper work, and register and receive climbing permit with a DNR Ranger or volunteer before you take off for the treetops.

We are also looking at adding some additional workshops: 1) Forestry Ecology and Tree Health with Georgia Forestry Commission (GFC); 2) Silverback Ape Project; 3) Innovations in Gear; and 4) Night Critters (bring your black lights). Please note that this is still under review and may be modified. Any suggestions for workshops would be great. We will still have the Adaptive Rigging and Climbing Workshop, Wilderness Climbing
 
Workshop, and hopefully we will have Earthquest with us again. I am hoping that our musically tree talented climbers will be able to supply evening entertainment for us. If you do play a musical instrument or sing (or think you can play or sing), please contact me.
In addition, we would like to have a slide show presentation of last year’s tree climbing workshop. I do not have a lot of photos. If you have any, please send them to me either at my e-mail or > physical mailing address, so I can put this together?
Once we have finalized the climbing areas, rules and regulations, and workshops-- we will post a schedule. We will also have a map of the climbing areas when you arrive (which you will receive after you've completed the paperwork and the orientation).

If you have any questions or suggestions please contact me.

Look forward to seeing all of you in the treetops,

Hi Tabby,

Good to hear from you again. There's a climb this 2-5 p.m. Saturday, June 7, at Sawnee Mountain near Lake Lanier, and 2-5 p.m. on Sunday at Lake Horton south of Fayetteville. If you need directions let me or Abe know.

The open (public) climbs are the first Saturday of every month and the second Sunday of every month.

Hi everyone,
It's been quite a while since I visited this forum. I've been running like crazy for the past six months.
I've only climbed once since Christmas. As I've said before I'm new to tree climbing and the Atlanta area. I climbed with Wild Bill last fall and enjoyed it. Hope he has something coming up soon. Or maybe some of you would like to show me good trees to climb in the mountains.
