    That had to have been a sight Brian. Love stuff like that when working around nature. Snow day today. My client cancelled and I had another lined up for my guys, also cancelled. Temps dropped last night below 20*. So it snowed on tepid ground getting it wet, then covered it with snow and a sheet of ice formed under crusty snow. Accidents everywhere, sheriffs asking folks to stay home, school cancelled. Was able to leave our driveway about 10ish and go pick up baby goats at a lower elevation. Accident on one of the grades (roll over and trapped) caused us to take a long detour but I made a good decision. Road was only icy in the shady spots while the highway we were on was an ice sheet. More accidents that way happened while we drove the sunny side of the mountain on clear roads. Came back to better roads after 1 pm. And safe and sound baby goats.

    Agreed, so risk mitigation. Train and prepare. Much easier to mitigate risk by just being trained and prepared. Enables you to recognise the risk and avoid it or mitigate. You are trained, your training probably gives you insight to trouble. Again, the risk is small. My kids are more at risk to a kidnapping than a shooting. SO we prepare and educate more to that. But my kids are also being trained in gun handling. In my eyes, there biggest risk with a firearm is an accidental shooting when at a friends etc.. If they know gun handling and safety, they have a better chance avoiding the risk or stopping the event. I wish I could afford martial arts as well. And they will never starve.

    Rather than turn your life into a fortress, why not simply look at statistics instead and realize that the chance of being a victim of terrorism or for that matter a sholl shooting, is extremely small. Most if not all of us here face higher danger just doing our job.

    If you can't stop terror, you defend against it. Metal detectors, locked steel doors, surveillance, guards. But evil will always find a work around. Hell, load up your van with some fert., park next to the barriers. My favorite was the flame thrower guy.....https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cologne_school_massacre

    Seen something like it at hotels in Mexico. I think they actually harvest the fronds there for the little cabana roofs on the beach. But they trimmed some like that around the hotel.

    Really cool Gary. I wish we had better places to fly kites here where we live. Too many trees and not much room for take offs. Not even at the park.

    We are in for a few days of frost here as well. Tomorrow we'll head down to the island M?N for two days of intensive beech falling. They have a place for us to stay, so we'll just work, sleep, work. Got enough daylight now for 12 hour days. They've been mumbling about having us come down for some summer logging. Hope it pans out, the place is beautiful. We'll be working in the forest on top of the chalk cliffs: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M%C3%B8ns_Klint

    Fighting in a right foot forward position makes you easier to kick in the nuts for a person fighting in the " Normal" position. Which goes both ways, of course. I'm right handed and my handwriting has always been terribly messy.

    stig replied to a thread Sharpening hedge trimmer in Chainsaws!
    What does a yearly trim have to do with "topping"? So you don't condone hedges either, I take it. Most hedges here are made from Beech, Field maple and Hornbeam. Those are trees ( or will be if they live long enough) so giving them a twice yearly going over with the hedge trimmers, is a sin to you and Brian, I guess. So what would be okay to do the yearly haircut thing on. Carrots?

    stig replied to a thread August Hunicke Videos in MBTV
    Madrone is really a beautyful tree. Growing between the dark conifers out on the West coast, it really looks fine with that smooth reddish bark. One of my favourite trees. There is a relative, which grows in Portugal, Arbutus Arbutus, where Madrone is Arbutus Menziesii. The Portuguese ferment and destill the fruits, the resulting liqour is called Medronho. Strong stuff, I had some last time I was in Portugal.

    Nice job, Andreij. I do about a month of hedge trimming every year, but that is taking it to another level. They really look great in the summer picture. Lots of work, though, compared to pollarding them as we do here.

    Non the less. If your life line is not set, and you get an injury, how are you going to bail? What about a wasp or bee nest. Get stung to shit while setting your line to bail. Also, gaff out, and those little stubs impale you. No stubs. Hell on rope too.

    Falling large beech trees in nice weather. We work near Copenhagen, so occasionally we get accosted by people who feel that felling the trees is wrong or evil. Gets a bit old after a while. Today as I was packing up to go home, this old ( 80es, maybe 90) man came walking along the forest road. When he came up to me, I could tell, he had something to say. I was thinking, not again , when the guy said: " Really nice trees, these. You guys must be making out pretty well ". Not what I expected at all. Turned out he had been a tree faller, after WW2, in the days of axes and whipsaws. I got home late, because I stayed for about an hour and talked with him about logging then and now.

    Thanks :) 28 :lol: That's funny.... Did a shat load of stuff this weekend but partying was not in the mix. Katy and the kids made me a really rich chocolate brownie cake Friday. Saturday, Levi and I did a clean up day at the range and then shot trap, skeet and rifle for free (save ammo) :D Today, kids had a pancake breakfast fund-raiser, so I got to have breakfast and then some adult time with other parents. Took Katy out the night of my birthday for some Mexican dinner. Busy, but crazy fun weekend.
