Arsenal of Democracy: The Treehugger
I was very happy to see this picture come in from Ann Arbor. The "Treehugger" is a freewayblog leaned against, nailed to or bungeed to a tree or pole. For ease and versatility of posting, you really can't beat the treehugger: Walk up to tree and lean blog against it, wrap a bungee or two around them and walk away. Try it sometime: it's so simple you'll laugh.
Another thing I like about treehuggers is that there's such a myriad of potential targets that it allows you to concentrate more on strategic placement: what I like to call the "chess" of freewayblogging. I usually opt for cross-posting (i.e.:placement on northbound side facing south) in places where exits
are few and far between. Trees on hillsides, above retaining walls... pretty much anything you can see while driving is fair game. Just pick out a tree that looks difficult to get to and get to it.
