    Cost about $200. Little box that one hooks up to the electric system, then hides on the tracker. I can call it and it'll give me a precise GPS position if the chipper goes AWOL. Then it is vigilante time! The make those for all kind of vehicles today. You can even get one for your dog, so if Fido goes missing, you can find him again. Lots of big companies here have them on their trucks, so the can keep track of where the fleet is at any time. Couple of years back I subbed a day as climber for a big landscaping company. We really worked hard and were finished early. When I was packing up to go home, I noticed all the other guys were just hanging around. I asked if they weren't going home and was told they couldn't leave a job site till 3.30 PM. Company had GPS trackers in the trucks to make sure no-one snuck off early. Man, I couldn't work for a company like that. No way!

    I hate that, too. We have a saying: The shoemakers kids and the ferrier's horse always have the most wore out shoes. I hate doing what I do for a living at home, so I always procrastinate. Go figure.

    It is not something I do often anymore, Mick. Sometimes we'll get a hankering for some treetop fun and go camping. Having a fire and grilling a meal in a treetop is fun, especially with some beer. (make that: lots of beer) Then we can sit and re-tell all the old climbing stories and just generally chew the fat all night.

    Yes she is. Didn't choose her for that particular thing, but it sure makes things easier. I do most of the cooking, here. After raising 3 kids, she feels that she has cooked enough for a lifetime and a half. She'll occasionally hanker for some Swiss dish and cook it, that is just fine with me, I love Swiss food. Son in law and his wife flew in late today, so I had made a cream of cauliflower soup with goat cheese and grilled pumpernickel croutons. Makes for a good, late night meal.

    3 large dogs do it for me. Plenty enough security for here. I do have a GPS tracker on the chipper. When my lat one got stolen, the insurance company insisted on that. For a long time I hoped the same a-holes that made off with the first one, would steal this one, too. No suck luck!:cry:

    Climbed wayyyyyyy too many crispy critters this week. The kind you go up to make them smaller, find huge cracks and pick a spot to fall 1/2 of them just to cut some loss in the understory and not hang them up in tight spots. Worked on reassembling the brown ford an got that fired up tonight. Now just some last bits and pieces to button up and fine tuning. Then test driving. Got the white f250 back from its tranny rebuild Friday only to have the truck die Sunday out in the middle of nowhere trap shooting with the kids. Had it towed Back up the hill and got it back yesterday after they fixed the fuel electrical issue. So I ended my work week, after climbing nasty dead, climbing a live 150' sugar pine. One of 3 the HO wants topped due to IPPS beetle infestation. So I did the deed. Two more to do next month. Tried for a long time to talk him into leaving the dead tops as habitat for birds of prey. He would not buy it. So, at least I did a proper job of it. All the other dudes up here would just gaff it up and hack it up. Long week.

    Yep, Burnham. Like Nate said, even 99,9% doesn't give you the WOW factor.

    Same as Amsteel. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ultra-high-molecular-weight_polyethylene#Fiber Knots totally reduce the strength of it, like up to 90%. We use a 22 ton Dyneema rope when we really pull trees. Gotta be super careful how you attach it, but then it far surpasses the steel wire rope we used to pull with in the woods.
