    Its good it goes to the lowest bidder, I just can't figure why some guys would want to go so low, as in 50 -70% lower than reasonable prices. And some travel 1-2 hours one way to do it.

    The saddles are backordered. Anyone who buys one that doesn't like it should have no trouble getting selling it.

    Ray what do you mean you swim with them? Like play with them? I figured they are capable of a burst given their huge, thick, mermaid-like tail. We flew down, beat the 12'' blizzard by 7 hours :D and rented boards from this super cool surf place, there is a real buzz there, and they gave me a banging deal of $30/day for a brandy new 11'6'' x32" wide board. The wideness was cool http://bocasurfandsail.com/surf-reports/

    Good deal Stig. You did not mention that his mother could have climbed it faster did you?

    stig replied to a thread How'd it go today? in Odds and Ends
    I had a fun job today. The local State Forest had sold 3 large larch trees to a mill builder. They were going to be used for wings, at the restoration of a historic wind mill. Those logs are worth a lot of monet, so in order to avoid any tear out by the thick branches when they were felled ( Our larch is prone to do that) They aked me to strip them and top them out. That was just another day at the office. The fun part was, they have an apprentice who has taken all the required courses and bought climbing gear, but has zero experience beyond what he was taught in school. He badly wanted to try topping one, so the forester had told me that they'd pay me to supervise it, and make sure the kid didn't get hurt. They don't have a climber at the district. Well, yesterday we had really high, gusting winds. When I topped the first one, it was a hell of a ride. I could tell the kid was having second thought about the whole thing, so I gave him my usual apprentice pep-talk about how a climber has to be able to overcome fear etc....etc.....etc...ad nauseum. He went up, and he got shook around good by the wind, but kept his cool ( Being able to talk to him on the SENAs helped with that) and did the job. He was one happy, proud kid when he came down, and sure had every right to be. That was a hell of a tree to start out with.

    Trust's a two edged sword IME. Trust in a rookie CO can kill, trust in a rookie ropeman can maim, trust in a long dead tree's structural integrity smush the life right outta yu, live in slomo. Methods that work, being stingily conservative, firing azzholes with no business on a jobsite, knowing the characteristics of the tree species both alive n dead. The idea that anyone can climb n do well in an arboreal climbing career's nuts. Some got it, some don't. Some can learn it, other's never will. Perhaps that's a good thing? You're fired! Don't make me kill yu! Jomo

    There certainly are more experienced people than me who would likely offer a wiser reply, but I would guess that the saw might well have simply quickly froze up with no damage to the crank bearings or anything else besides the p and c. After thoroughly blowing out and cleaning the crankcase and parts within, check the crank movement. If it seems good, why not go for it with a new p and c. When you do install the new piston on the crank, be mindful of the circlips position that holds the piston on the crank pin. The curly q should either be in the up or down position in it's seat, not sideways, or it's said that the clip can fly out. I had a clip either break or fly out once on a real cool modified saw that I had put a lot of work into and was getting real good use from, rendering both the piston and cylinder damaged to uselessness. Bring that saw back to life!

    ClimbMIT replied to a thread Monkey Beaver Saddle in Gear Forum
    Does Treestuff or New Tribe have one to try before you buy? I really like this saddle but I wanna give it a run first. I tempted to wait for a sale but I do see Treestuff has the coupon thing going on now. If I purchased this saddle and another climbing rope I could get the 7% off plus $100 gift card. So I may just do this if the next couple weeks goes as planned. Loss some money this week due to this funk going around with flu like symptoms. My son got it, I had it, and my daughter is hopefully getting over it now. I am ready to pull the trigger on this it's just always something I need/want ��

    Hey gerry it's the saying proper terminology promotes clear communication, but they have to be willing to learn the terminology first. Probably worked out for the best, I think your book is perfect. My mantra is : ten feet higher, wow I made it, ten feet higher wow my hearts still working etc. until I get to where I want to be. I like the rock climbing one better. I think it is the heights , limb walks, swings basically everything about climbing that makes me addicted to climbing and getting that sudden rush when something unexpected happens but having dependable gear and trusting it is a huge bonus. Like Cory said my biggest worry is the tie in point and the tree itself in most cases, but I guess that's all part of it.

    Stay away from milk, don't drink more than half a gallon of sleep, and get 8 hours of drugs. After that remember that the people that made your climb line and all your other gear are good enough at what they do and don't want your widow to sue them. If you want to be scared be afraid of the tree itself breaking out from under you. Your gear is plenty strong.

    That was a rock climbing mantra, Jerry. 15-20' falls are not uncommon in rock climbing (highly dynamic rope). 100' falls in extreme climbing can happen without issue, if "clean" (step to overhanging). Longest rope jump is around 1200'. The take-away is that when situational awareness, proper technique, and proper gear are used together, you're protected, not bulletproof, but things should work out okay.

    Same here. It goes to the lowest bidder with no loyalty except for the dollar. Or the lack of.

    Town work goes to the lowest bidder Cory. Sometimes it pays well, sometimes it doesn't. Depends on how busy everybody is. lots of storm work here now. I'm doing a job for the city tomorrow that will pay well as a result of the demand for tree guys.
