    Quads are killers. Not as bad as the old three wheelers though.

    Myself as well Mick. Came over backwards on a hill climb. To avoid the quad crushing me I couldn't protect my head as well as I would've liked. I came down on a rock knocked me out for a little bit with a helmet on.......without it may have been a permanent lights out I fear.

    I used to have a half dozen "white boys" working for me. They all worked VERY hard on the job site. Might sit around for an hour first thing in the morning if I let them though. New guys always asked if we were working today when the forecast called for rain. Every time they'd ask, I'd ask if they were a girl, then walk away shaking my head, turn around and say, "If you're in the tree an you're worried about lightening, you can get outta the tree, otherwise we're working". Now my crew is pretty mixed. Sometimes I have to ask the white guys if they're supervising when they're standing around, but all in all they all work really well.

    My helmet undoubtedly saved my life in a quad bike accident.

    I've only been doing trees for 7 years, but from the day we started we get half down on jobs of $400 or more. I've had 2 or 3 people complain about it in 7 years. We can be booked out 2 weeks, have a major storm come through, do that work, and not lose a single job. The first sentence on my forms says, "I understand that scheduling is dependent on the weather and a lot of other factors outside of everyone's control." My quote forms say: "I understand that scheduling is dependent on the weather and other factors outside everyone's control. I hereby certify that I am the property owner, or am authorized by the property owner, to contract 2 Guys Tree Service for the work specified above. By signing below, I authorize 2 Guys Tree Service to perform the work and personally guarantee payment. I further understand that payment is due by cash or check upon completion of work, and that Jobs quoted at $400.00 or more require half of payment upon signing." That has saved us a lot of headaches. We make some exceptions, especially for storm work/insurance jobs. I'm up for all the competition in the world, but I gotta make sure I can pay my guys at the end of the week, they have families to feed. One more thing to mention.... heard a story a while back about a couple getting divorced. She owned the house and had a favorite tree in the backyard. He was getting booted and before he left, hired a tree guy (not me) to take down her favorite tree. Big lawsuit. That's why we have that property owner stuff on there.

    They use their junk to help cool down I guess, not much hair, blood vessels close to the surface. I've seen them doing the same thing on a sunny spring morning, warming themselves up in the same way. My theory anyway!

    I liked it. I also appreciated the "if they be true craftsmen" part. Obviously there was a good bit of thought put into those words.

    Can't say much about the smaller scale bass, but the smaller scale guitars are awesome. I had a buddy that had a smaller epiphone sg from the 70s, every time i picked it up i sounded wayyyyyyy better than i am because everything is so much easier and quicker. Your bends can go further, your fingerings are just that much quicker. Another super fast neck is a scalloped one, if you ever see one (very rare). A scalloped neck is where they sand out any extra wood off the fretboard in between the frets, so you never actually push down on the wood, you just gently touch the strings, and with super tight action you are there. Yngwie Malmsteen used to play one.
