    Licensed Timber Operator. We need it for the permitting process and if we sell the wood or wood product.

    Back in Cali. Started my LTO class. And since any tree work I have done does not count towards my hours of 3000 I need for my application, I'll have to take a lessor rated restricted license until I can accumulate those hours over the next 2 or 3 years. Basically, a firewood type harvest license. Oh well, getting an education for when it comes time. At least I know the players and the game better.

    Beautiful! Our new one is the same way. One has to stand well clear when letting him loose, cause he'll roll immediately. We finally got some decent weather these last two days. been the coldest spring ever recorded, and lots of precipitation, too. The almost 40000 trees we've planted love it, though. Plenty of water and not too hot. They seem to be coming along fine. Last year we planted 4000 sitka spruce in a clear cut and lost 3900 ( Or something like it) to Hylobius beetles. So this year we replanted, waited till we could register gnawed spots on the new trees, and today sprayed each and every one with a synthetic pyrethroid. That should take care of them.

    Seems like Oregon has got themselves into some sort of KYA thing about raker height. 20 years ago, I'd just use their chains right out of the roll, after sharpening, of course. Now, my raker guide and my sense of cutting tells me to take some off before using the chain. Anybody else notice that?

    Took a day off. One of the dogs got hit by a car and I had to put her down. Kids and Katy were a mess. They needed to go 2 hours over for stuff at the charter school branch we home school from. So I did the driving and took them to lunch. Seemed to help the mood a bit. Thursday I leave for colorado to see my dying sister. I just need to go to work tomorrow and bury my saws in some trees.

    Yup, but noneless, if you look at Bushmen, or other untouched natural tribes, they usually bow out at about 40. We have gotten used to people getting to 90+, but that ain't natures way at all.

    Silly things about self destruct and break off at the ears. Check Ebay. I think I even got a cheaper one from my dealer than 50.00. I think Forrester has them as well. Aftermarket. I gut ty he little things and open them up.

    No, it is pretty normal. We weren't meant to be much more than 40 years old. Anything beyond that is a gift. Smoke, drink heavily or be obese, that gift ain't for you.

    I do, Mick. Always did. Never minde having just myself for company. I lived on an abandoned farm in Northern Norway ( Above the polar circle) for a long time back in the 70es. Back side of the fiord, no roads. Any visitors had to come by boat. Nonetheless, I had a visit by the Jehova's witnesses once. Sailed right into the fiord and up to my landing. One neat thing about living there was that you could always spot incoming visitors in time to have hot coffee ready when they arrived. The bad thing was that in times of unruly weater, I couldn't sail across the fiord to Narvenes, the only shop in the area for groceries. Had some lean times when the wind was blowing hard. I recently started looking into how the people in "Velfiorden" had fared after I left. Turns out that of the 6 families eking a living out of the grazing land along the fiord, there is only a single person left. Lars Fagerli. He was maybe 30 years old when I came into Velfiorden as the only impact from the rest of the world, ever to come there, in 1976 ( maybe, my memory is a bit hazy on those years) Now he is the only person left out there. Weird to think about. ) My wife has a hankering to go to Nordkap, The northernmost point of Norway ( Mostly because when we hitchhiked there in 75 ( Maybe??) the weather was so bad, we turned around before getting to the actual Nordkap. So maybe next year we'll head up there. Might pay old Lars a visit and bullshit about those days when crazy danes ran around the Velfiord. Hopefully he'll remember me.

    I don't much like people. Never really did, which made me the perfect" lonely traveller" in those years of " Has chainsaw, will travel". I made my way around the world for about 12 years, mostly alone. In fact, the only person I travelled with for any length of time ( About 2 years) whose company I really enjoyed, is the "Mail order bride". I've often though that the friendships, that I have found here in the 'House, are mainly possible because they exist on the internet and we don't see each other every day in real life. However, those members that I have visited with, have left me with a feeling of friendship, even though I met them in person. Shit, I don't know. Hard to put into words. I've simply never been a " People person" so for me bars were always an anathema.

    I did check the radar, but the pesky rain cloud changed direction. No big deal, A day off never killed anyone. Jim, I think we have about the equal distance to the nearest bar. Also, I don't much like bars. Never did. Always seems to be some asshole looking for a fight and I'm too stupid not to oblige him.

    Got the day ruined by a faulty weather report. They had promised sun and no wind, so we set out to spray, only to have it rain instead. Didn't even have a backlog of office work to keep me occupied.

    Absolutely. I get the: " Are you bringing a bucket" question often. Not having one and not doing enough arbo work to justify getting one ( They are pretty useless in logging) I usually tell them that bucket trucks are for the wimps that can't climb. So far that response has worked pretty well.
