    Can't believe Brian forgot Mike Maas' last name! The two of them liked to tag team on me at AS.

    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.

    Had a productive week. Three easy jobs today, still done and home by 3. Yesterday's big removal paid cash, including $1200 in $10 bills. It will take me weeks to get rid of them all! And if that's the worst thing I have to deal with this week than I consider myself very lucky. Had a saw with a bad spark plug I fixed today. Made me think of the guy from Arboristsite many years ago who always said that he had never seen a spark plug go bad. Mike something, can't remember. Anyway, the electrode in this plug was broken and you could change the gap by turning the plug upside down and back again. Threw a new plug in and it runs perfect. Had a big fat red shouldered hawk sitting in the top of a tree I cut down today. Tree was 80' tall and from my setup I could only reach to about 50' up. So I had to throw a good size top and that bird stayed right there until the top came over, then she flew away.

    Kyle that 2nd video was disturbing. Terrifying for those divers. Probably best you are working in normal air these days.

    Fine video...I like how you dropped out of warp speed to see the cool things (big trucks, big equipment...). And you have a wonderful little princess there. The family touch...priceless. Let's see what the Saw King and Echo can do.

    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

    The cop probably got scared. He was a 30+ year veteran, probably close to retirement. I'd sure hate to die OTJ in the final few years of my career. Not condoning him, just empathizing.

    And that's interesting...another training video said the blade is supposed to run opposite how we run ours...so that you are always "back-chaining" which shoots the chips away from the saw to minimize clogging underwater: <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/GWP9thPs_mM" frameborder="0" allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen></iframe> Embed not working still....try this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GWP9thPs_mM
