    Don't watch this video https://vimeo.com/247188621 But if you do, Firefighter, you know a lot about cows, what say you?

    Maybe. But what do you say about the premise. There is no one on earth who is perfect, has no skeletons. So that leaves us with giving second chances?

    Im the furthest thing from an expert but I'll say Red tail hawk. So they've figured the burning brush pile means food- pretty cool.

    Sometimes its tuff though, if the tree has a bow in it, to figure the lean. Or, if it's a big hardwood leaning one way but with a huge leader leaning the other way

    The joke always was, as folks are carrying those heavy mofos thru the bush, "if this is a young block, I'd hate to see the fully grown ones!!"

    Interesting to me that you said that so readily. Been thinking about it. You might have something there. Safe assumption that there is no one perfect human, whether he's running for office or not. So, if you posit Grietens was a generally good person with a good number of positive attributes before he gave in to temptation, and then afterward he realizes what a huge F up he made, and if he learns and matures from the mistake, then you essentially have a new and improved version of the already solid guy you had before. If no second chance is given then an excellent option has been lost.

    Nothing better than some big iron to blow out the job.

    You're lucky, falling is the fun part, I would say. Clean up sucks. Unless you are just skidding or forwarding. But to do that all day could get boring I would think. When I logged I did both the falling and skidding.

    Skidders and skidding, is but one means of getting the felled trees to the yard. Same with forwarding. I would lump it under the catch all term of yarding. Even if if there is no cable-type yarding machine involved. I would say if you aren't in charge of the yarding, if that is subbed out etc, then you are a faller or a cutter. Or in Maine, a chopper.

    When I was there, cutting was falling and yarding was logging. Back in the northeast, logging means the whole cutting and yarding process as one. Anyway, s'all good, just an opinion. Nobody can question your facility with languages.

    I should know this, but, 'right to work' generally refers to anti union stuff?

    That is not logging. In the PNW, logging is the yarding of felled trees, afaik. That is precision falling. Nice shots, for sure AH. Stig, most loggers on this earth who have your level of experience fully share your level of proficiency at falling and logging. Its not rocket surgery. Take a breath. No need to throw stones, imo.
