    I start with an hourly or half day or day rate in my head (never sharing that with the client), then if it's awesome work that our climbers will love (deadwooding a deodar cedar that hasn't been pruned in a decade!) then I'll discount the price a little (15%?) to book a sweet job- then if there's hazards then the price gets bumped up, if it's crap work we don't want (palms, bamboo, vines) it gets bumped more, and if it's specialty work that very few people can compete with (airspade work, trunk injections, cabling/propping/bracing) then the price get bumped even higher. There's more to it of course, but that's the basic gist! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Totally. Or maybe like "I'll try it for a $100 and that's it. Can it work in that time?" But don't commit to anything long term. Don't give them access to a credit card number or bank account number. Get a gift card and put the $100 on it. I bet it doesn't work. I've tried Home advisor Groupon Living social Thumb tack Angies list Yelp. Maybe others I can't remember. Yelp is the only one that have ever made us any money. The rest have been a waste of money and time. Yelp is the only one that let us try before we buy. They knew they were worth it and didn't have to over sell it.

    We've abused ours hard. It's been welded back together in a few spots. But not because it was built poorly. It's been us dropping things into it a little too roughy! It's worth me taking it to the welder. It's an amazing tool! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Describe what you're doing with the line more.... but regardless- polyester is better :) better UV resistance and it doesn't absorb water the way nylon does. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    For me it was different, living out of contact with other people for days or weeks, after a time it made me appreciate them, longing really. Loneliness could get pretty extreme. Someone stopping by was exciting. When someone walked up the path to my house the atmosphere changed. It can make you sensitive to things that you might not be otherwise, a kind of alertness, sense moods in people, something going on when they aren't much showing it in a way that most people can tell. I think from that experience of them not being around, when they are you get the vibes that aren't diffused by other social activity. People show a lot if you can read it.

    Cool vid, Cory. I lived alone in the woods in Northern California for a number of years in a small cabin, off a little stretch of narrow road called Redwood Road. I did get lonely, but also found moments of inner peace and tranquility combined with the surroundings that I have never experienced elsewhere. Those moments still live inside me. I can easily recall the sound from the little creek that flowed along the bottom of the property, I'd lay in bed and go to sleep listening to it every night. I don't know if I would like to ever go back to living isolated like that, but i can sure understand someone wanting to and not thinking beyond that. There is a feeling to be found in a place like that you won't get elsewhere. Within and without, I guess could be said and as the song goes. That fellow has got it worked out.

    :D Thanks Fred, that looks nice, I'll research it tonight! Large fit well for an average 6 foot guy? Or what size do you have and how's the fit? Yeah, I did Dave, haven't used a belt in a decade other than a saddle when I know I have to climb out. That could be a thread by itself discussing how to stay legit. I'll look those up, thank you.

    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.

    You can get the signature on your phone or iPad if you are on site with the client. You can't get it over the email. Not sure why 😭 Honestly we never get signatures. If they email me back "great when can you do it" I take that as a signature. Supposedly a hand shake is sufficient to seal a deal, so why not an email!? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    https://vimeo.com/200352127 Been working hard lately getting Copper ready to compete in his first field trial this spring. No special footage here. My hands are usually tied up but I managed this. We're working him on pigeons and chukars at the moment. The pigeon is about 15 years uphill. Just a quick clip of him honing in on the scent and locking up. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
