    Working on some meat loaf. Katy made biscuits and gravy last night since I was out with Levi for a restling tourney. We left at about 4:30 in the morning and got home around 6:30 or 7ish. SO Katy took him to science camp this morning. They left at about 6am. She will be home in about an hour. She had a craving for it. Surprise! Originally we wanted to go to the Fish and Game dinner (meatloaf) and had to skip it due to events going on.

    Nice vid August. I love zip lining stuff and often do. Great tools to have at the ready. I like your speed line kit. Tempted to throw the money at it. Be lighter to pull aloft than what I am using now. Question, did you make the runners changeable on the snaps? Looks like they are sewn together after passing through the eye. I guess one could just cut them off and girth hitch to the eye when needing replaced if damaged or what not.

    I have been using my Tree Austria for when I have done bucket work, which is few and far between circumstances. I will continue that trend of wearing a harness that is rated for fall arrest. I find I like being able to just leave the bucket is important to me. Often I will just use the bucket on 2/3 -3/4 of a tree and set a TIP and finish the tree on rope. But that is just me. I just feel it is faster than another set up. Might just be how th I ngs are laid out up here. Often times, moving the bucket is not a viable option due to terrain or access. Just my .02 Willie. I use one so little, I am probably the last one that even chime in.

    I bet he won't survive. If left to the wild maybe. But a dead bear was recently found nearby with buck shot and a bullet in him. Human won. We usually do. Probably raiding some chickens judging by the feathers in his coat. Shot and run off to die. I was amazed him climbing as well as he did. Those rear legs are powerful.

    Damn Dave. I hope you feel better and better things await you. Here are some frozen trees from the freezing fog this morning. Fog had receded some and the sun came out. My job got canceled today and one of my help got sick. So I met with the clients I need to focus on and watched the guys pull logs off mine tailings. No bear sightings today though :/:

    Here is a video my ground man Mike got when the sun came out after a week of cold rain up here last week. Sun finally broke through Friday. My climb rope from climbing two of these was just dripping with water from being cinched around the stems. <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/iRV2sEs7MqQ" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    Truth! I had freezing fog so thick today I could not barely see the ground crew. Radio only when I topped them out. I was throwing 50 plus footers. I had some good DZs so I knew the general direction and I could wait to get a glimpse of Mike in the HIVis before I gunned the face. Then he would fade into the fog. Hit my marks often. But too damn foggy to throw 100 plus sticks near buildings. You could not see the target form the tree base. Then a bear out of no where. Crazy shat.

    Well today was interesting.. I leave a tad early to do a drop and walk. I got my 066 back from Rob yesterday since I needed it off the job he is decking logs on. Show up at the site and try to get the new chain I had bought for it on the saw... NOPE. Tad short. Second time they got the chain wrong on me for this saw and bar at the saw shop. K... New guy... I get it. Explain I will be back tomorrow to drop the tree in the morning so the clean up can begin. Same job Rob has been decking logs on with two subs we use and the equipment is over there at the ready. so off to my other job. One no show. K... No problem I can make it work with the loader op and one ground man. Part way through the day.. flat tire. Now ground man getting sick. So I am like, lets get this one more down that I stuck a line in so I can move my gear to another job tomorrow. There is an old mine right there. I have worked this ditch other times. You just huck the brush down into it right in from of the mine. Drops about 20 feet. Yard all the brush out the ditch to a road. All morning I climb and strip over the ditch... Mike yards it out, loader moves to fire. Last tree. Both of us handling the pull rope in the same ditch, get it all set. Mike heads out to pull point, I climb up the side to make the 3 cuts. I no sooner get to the base of the tree, I hear a rustle down in the ditch at the mine (caved in mostly) entrance. Big young cinnamon black bear lumbering right where we just were. Runs up the opposite, almost vertical wall 20 feet up and out. One front leg is broke and dangling. HOLY SHIT. He was not 20 feet from me as I am standing on a ledge the tree is growing out of. Of all friggen days I did not bring my carry weapon. Truck had got damp, so I oiled it up and stuck it in the safe till drier weather. The frig! Wont do that again. There have been bear and mountain lion sightings over there since fall. I have been packing JIC. So... we inform the HO to call Fish & Game and Sheriff. He pulls a hunting rifle and starts checking around in case. Dismissed my sick ground guy Dismissed my tractor op to go get tire fixed. I quit early and head over to saw shop to straighten the second boo boo out. I go home. Call custy for tomorrow and she cancels. So after I pull all the gear out, it all goes back tomorrow.. For the rest of the month anyway... SHeesh.. What a day!

    Swam next to a cuda off Cozumel while scuba. Frightening looking about 3' long thing with nasty teeth... We just eyed one another and kept swimming. Probably about as curious about each other as anything. You come to realise in the big blue, how lower on the food chain you really are in that environment.

  4. Hey Paul, I had a chat with Bounce (Sean Tait) at WesSpur after you & talked on the phone earlier today. They've finily completed re-working my Mesh Bag for a production version so it should be on thire website by the end of August.

    Sean said he'll be calling you next week regarding the possability of using the Mesh Bag with your Ropetek Wraptor Package.

    I'll be talking with a few of the local tree care companies in my area and if I get enough interest, I'll be sure to take you up on your offer of borrowing one of your Wraptores for a demo day. Who knows, maybe I'll take the plunge & buy one from you. (any discounts on a used demo Wraptor???) Likely be in the fall by the time I get everyone together.

    All the best to you with the launch of you very cool product!

    This is something ive put alot of thought and research into its very very simple and its a viable product with no competition.
    It caters to a very large user group as well.
    Its low tech and cheap but it helps with ergonomics i think it will wash
  6. pete hey man , i have something im thinking about developing and id like to ask you some questions.
    My product is extremly simple and has nothing to do with tree work or ropes.
    I just dont know how to began production but im so confidant im willing to drop the $$$
