Grin and Bear it.

In my ‘ute’ in Hawaii, one of the common methods NCOs in the field used to motivate young soldiers was to ask them to Koalify.

That is, we were invited to grab the nearest tree, wrapping our arms and legs around it, and climb it like a koala bear. In all our gear.

And just to make it memorable, do it upside down.

I don’t think I ever got more than about 20 feet up.
