    I use it mostly from the ground. But occasionally from the bucket. It's good for the bushier trees where the brush can just fall. I also use it and a throwline to do some rigging that's just out of reach. You'd be surprised how much roof clearance you can do just by being on the roof with a pp and good throwline skills.

    Yowsa! That is a hell of a story! My folks had to send letters to my birth mom as kind of an "interview" process. She was able to choose between several "applicants". She also sent a picture of her when she was pregnant with me. She was holding my 2 year old brother in the picture. Honestly, if I never find out I will be fine. I have a great family. I would however like to meet my brother.....and would like to find out some health history. Things I should be looking out for.

    Sounds like the kind of guy who needs his arms broken. in several places. My x-wife was adopted. Her , for lack of a better term " birth mother" was only 15 when she got pregnant. Wife was adopted by a single woman, who should never have been able to adopt, according to how things were done back then, but they bend the rules for her, because she was a medical doctor. She was also completely unfit to be a mother of any kind, and managed to fuck my x up beyond repair, mentally. Imagine, as a teenager, any time you acted up ( Which teenagers are wont to do) being told that it was because you were a " Gutter child" I've spent 30 years living with the fall-out from that. MIL died the week I started courting,( To use an oldfashioned term) my x-wife. If she hadn't, I would probably have pushed her in front of a train "accidentally" We are very much anti adoption, x-wife and I. Be better to kill the kids. You seem to present a different story, though. Anyway, x-wife spent literally her whole life frittering around, thinking about trying to get in contact with her " Birth mother" but could never get around to actually taking the step. I finally told her when she was 60 years old to shit or get off the pot, because if she waited any longer her " Birth mother" (please give me a better word) would be too old and decrepit for anything good to come out of meeting her. That didn't make her do it, but 3 months later she got a letter from a half sister, who had tracked her down. So we eventually found her " Birth mother" who turned out to be a great gal, who just had a habit of getting into bed and marriage with the wrong men. She also turned out to have lived her entire life about 3 miles from us. We've probably seen her multiple times in the local general store. I really liked her a lot and we got to enjoy her company for a few years before she died of cancer. Meant a lot to x-wife, meant a gigantic amount to "Birth mother". There is a wooden cross on the local church graveyard, handcrafted in Burma teak ( Hell, that cross will last longer than the church) by me, marking her grave. Since I refuse to enter churches or any other places tainted by the christian religion, that should tell you, how much I liked her. There is a twist to the story that I won't tell here. PM me if you want it.

    And I would like to see your set up also. Too many people have built around us in the last few years and we miss the solitude.

    Haha! You guys are over thinking it. I am moving the wood from job sites in fireplace lengths and calculate what I charge based on that. In essence, getting paid for possessing my own firewood.

    stig replied to a thread Benefit of a 20' pole saw? in Gear Forum
    We charge $200+ tax a day when we rent our 7" out. Probably different in the US. Actually, truth be told, a lot of times it goes out in the moonlight, no tax. Keeps us able to go climb some great trees and hang out with some great American tree folks every once in a while:)

    I did send him a message recently Stig. My sister used the same guy.......recommended/required by the Nuns. She said she had to get kind of pushy with him. I would hate to have to do that. It took him 4 years and more money to finally ask the grand parents where their daughter was!

    Now, that sounds just like something the Catholic church would be up to. When they are not busy hiding acts of paedophilia.

    Couldn't find it for Montana. Said it was up to the courts in most states. Judge's discretion sort of thing. Hell, the Nuns would not tell me anything.....I had to hire a guy. Makes me think someone is protecting a revenue stream. I might should ask my lawyer.

    No. We live in Montana and do all our heating and cooking with wood. We use a lot of wood and get paid for doing so. We also don't plow through work on the scale that most here do, so our volume of wood processed is not monstrous but is commiserate to our needs. You know, work to live...not live to work.
