    Gigi has the customs forms and is used to shipping stuff overseas, since she has a daughter in England. I will ask her to do it. Thanks for the offers, everybody.:)

    The hinges of my old Coleman Steel belted cooler that I bought in California in 1989 broke. Since I can't get one like it over here and use it a LOT, I'd like to repair it. Here is the problem: Coleman has replacement hinges for only $2.65 , but their internet shop isn't set up to deal with overseas customers. They referred me to the European branch office in Holland, but they don't have hinges for the Steelbelted series, since that was never sold in Europe. So I need someone in the US to order the hinges for me, and put a label with my name and adress on the package and send it on to me. I can then repay that person via Paypal or donate the money in his/her name to either the Bermy fund or the House. I have the parts # , so it is just a question of going to the Coleman homepage, order, relabel and send it on.

    I was a bit puzzled about the thing with the 16 Danish fishermen, since I've never heard about that. Then I realized that 1980 was part of the many years when I travelled and worked all over the world, and didn't keep up with the news at all.

    Lots of comfort in the big BMW tourers, Burnham. Heated handles and seat and a moving windshield that can be set according to the speed, so you sit in a bubble of still air. I could ride mine at 120 MPH and quietly smoke a cigarette if I wanted.

    A doubled line is just one leg doubled over... granted, each leg takes a lighter load of you. But if a leg is cut or you TIP breaks, down you go. It was hard for me as well. The doubled line just feels more stable especially on limb walks. And the 2-1 is nice. I guess, using the hybrid devises helps a lot in helping some over come this, as you can switch back and forth through out the climb. I feel this eases the nerves for some over time. Trusting the gear is key. Especially the Itty bitty hitch cord for most. And knots. JME.

    The newly minted arborists from the forestry school do that all the time. Start a company and immediately buys a chipper, a stumpgrinder and of course a Landrover to pull the chipper, because that is the most hipster cool car. Last about one year, then go bottom up. Doesn't help that they all set up in the area where the school is. You can feed hogs with arborists up there, ther are so many. The good thing is that there is always a surplus of good, hardly used machines on the market for the rest of us to enjoy.

    Stig, that is a great story. Those Sena units really make a difference in breaking in a new climber.

    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.

    Sometimes the whole " Buy American for quality" actually holds water. I bought a Coleman cooler from their "Steel Belted" line 27 years ago in California. Been using it since, but yesterday, as I was unpacking it from our logging tour down south ( With the cold weather, it wasn't so much used as cooler, more as a way to keep the doggies from snacking on our food) the hinges broke. Woe was upon me, I really loved that old cooler and you just can't get something like it here. Quick visit to Coleman's homepage right now, they still carry hinges for that model........for $4.25 :):)

    Got back late last night after another week of logging down south. Weather was fine, sunny cold days and lots of stars at night. Today we worked the new horse for a bit, to take the edge off, then went for the first drive. He is very easy to drive, as he should be, since it has been his job for the last couple of years. It is too cold for it to be really enjoyable, but spring is just around the corner.

    Why yes Sam... That top went KABLEWY all over the burn pile :D <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/E52E0SAPyZM" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> Well, today, we start another week of high winds and rain... Storm supposed to be as bad as last month. :P:|: Gets old. Woke up first this morning, after going to sleep grateful I got to climb and prune live trees for 2 days, to a call from a competitor. Seems I needed a heads up that OSHA is crawling all over us now and they got tagged. Their guy got caught starting a saw wrong, and then they started checking everything. I think I posted semi recent we had a guy killed up here pulling a top. SO now we have 8 inspectors listening for chainsaws and seeking them out. Ohhh goody.... So I have a week to make sure all our paper is in order, double check and triple check all our safety procedure and gear. Guess we need to keep to those 15 minute safety meetings and document. Yada Yada Yada. My friendly competition might very well end up subbing to one of the big companies (or getting leased by them) to keep in business. I guess they hit them pretty hard in fines. Ahhhhhh the life :|:

    Low and slow. Test... But easily adjusted once in the tree as well in case. It has two adjustment points. So you really need to dial it in just like a hitch for the rope you are using. Is it sliding when you weight it? Tighten the cam (s). Is it binding too hard? Loosen a cam or cams. Low and slow. Then try some short ascents. Up, down... Up ... down... How did it feel? You are already familiar with how your hitch cord works on your rope... This is just a mechanical hitch.. You want it to grab when weighted and tend nicely when advancing. Like anything, you don't just pull it out of the box and go work climb on it. Common sense.
