I really didn't fall but this year I came down in my Climber. (sit and climb). It looked like I was close enough to the ground to unhook my feet from the bottom, let it fall and I would just drop down to it. Well fortunately the tether was short enough that when I let go to slide/jump to the bottom I just got hung up under my arm pits and was barely on my toes. Ouch. another foot of tether and Would have really been hurting. Must have droped 4-5' OI shortened that up quick and never took what seemed to be close enough for granted again.
