Default Tree House vs. Tree Fort

as a kid did you have one...i didnt but me and friends had a land fort...it was cool but not as cool as a tree fort though

id choose a tree fort since im a dude and a fort is much cooler sounding than a house

one great thing aboot having one as a kid...its still a cool teen retreat for poking the ladies and partying

our backyard is one huge woods, and surprisingly we never had any sort of cool fort.

we had a are on the ground where we played, had fires and stuff.

oh, then we found a 100 foot long 3/4ths in steel cable, that we strung through the trees to make a canopy tightrope kinda thing.

We had all kinds of forts, but the tree fort was the most rickety by far. I think was only held together by a couple of staples and scotch tape. I dunno why it never collapsed on us.


We also dug an underground fort that had a pretty complex maze of tunnels. In the sides of the tunnel walls we dug out recesses that held burning candles. Again, I don't know why none of us died in it. That one didn't last very long, somebody's mama found out about it and that was the end of that.

We used to play "guns" or "war" in the woods by my house. When you would see someone you would just say "bang, you're dead"

So lame looking back now.

Then we discovered paintball. Ya, PGP pistol and 10 round tubes.

I had a couple tree 'forts' that were nothing more than a floor mounted up in the tree. Unfortunately they were both overrun by earwig infestations. *shudder* Those things still freak me out.

I had neither as a kid, at least in stable form. I would climb trees all the time, and build small forts with my friends, but the forts would only last for a day or two considering they were just carefully balanced sticks that a slight breeze could topple. 'Twas fun, life as a mini-Prod.

tree HOUSE?! I lacked the funding for all for walls and a ceiling. It was more of several boards nailed to tree limbs with about 3/4's of a wall.

Unfortunately, we built our tree fort directly over a yellow jacket nest. Lost that battle.

I did, however, have a swank club house. It had a real glass window and everything. Had a bed/couch and a cabinet and a small table. Unfortunately (again), my dad took over the rights and started using it as a garden shed before I was old enough to discover the joys of boffing any over-eager young men in the privacy of "daddy's little girl"'s club house.

A tree fort is just a tree house without doors or a ceiling.

SuperSoakers hadn't been invented yet. All we had were those crappy water pistols that plugged in the back and took half an hour to fill at the sink because if you turned the water on too hard none of it would go in. You couldn't drink out of them, either, since the water took on a definite plasticene flavor.

'Tis a shame. I grew up in the primetime of water shooting contraptions. The SuperSoaker 50 was the best watergun ever invented. The 30 was close, but it was just too small. The 100 and larger models were prone to leaking. All the XP models leaked as well. It was the one and only 50 that was by far superior in quality and reliabilty. Unfortunately I broke the plastic of my barrel by some means which I cannot recall. I wish I still had it.

I got one of those right when it came out planning to pwn everyone with it. The thing leaked more water on me than it sprayed on other people.

Tree house: for tea-sipping sissies unless you happen to get teh woomenz up in them for peeking at b(.)(.)bies!

Tree fort: a more manly endeavor. OK up to about age 12 at which point they tend to attract the same-gender-oriented crowd.
