    imagine back in the day when there were thousands of miners waiting to get into the mines with pix and wheelbarrows, or thousands of autoworkers going in with screwdrivers to build model Ts. People say everyone should just get a good job and get paid what they are worth. what is everyone supposed to do? Now there is just a whole lot of people fighting for the chance to serve lattes.

    Of course Union members have common sense. They seem like a very important tool in keeping all of the money from pooling up in the pockets of just a couple of money hoarders. We had bloodshed in this country when the inequality got bad. Its no good if everyone is fighting amongst each other for the chance to serve 8 people. Eugene Debs, the Pullman car strike, there was a lot of bloodshed in West Virginia so you could have a Union. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Blair_Mountain . You are a direct beneficiary of some blood that was shed over income inequality and people not getting paid what they are worth. I am somewhat baffled. I would like to hear a little more details of how there is this contradiction in your posts and your reality. Are you just playing the game?

    We will find out. As Americans it's been since the 20s we had serious income inequality. In other places, historically, it leads to bloodshed. But who knows, let them eat cake.

    Stephan, there are 3 drive through trees in this region, which I call home. First and foremost is the one and only bonafide Drive Tru Tree in Leggett. It is the Gueniss book of records holder. Now the second drive-thru-tree is in Holmes Flat on the south fork of the Eel River, and it's just a snag ready to fall down. Fact, it's being held up from falling by cables. The third is in Klamath and it's just a stub.

    Apparently they aren't interested in humans. But flashy things and erratic behavior can excite them.

    gf beranek replied to a thread Km III for lanyard? in Gear Forum
    KM III is too stiff to roll. You can't flip it. And it's too thin, as a laynard, to hold on to for very long. As a short climbline it would be ok. It's only about 9 mm I think. I had 300 feet and used it exclusively for SRT entry into the big trees. It's was sweet for that. Funny, when we would pull it out of the tree the rope actually folded up in a pile like a paper clip. The jacket is tough. Every imaginable type ascender was used on that rope for probably 10 years, and it never picked.

    The hole was already burned through the tree hundreds of years before before the park came to be. The opening was adjusted so traffic could fit through. It was just an attraction in the day. The original cavity probably formed over a period of some 500 years. Give or take a hundred. The tree, I would guess some 1500 yrs.

    Not so long ago a local diver here met up with a great white. They recovered the fellows torso. A week later his head was found on Ten Mile Beach by some tourists about 2 miles south of where the incident occurred. I snorkeled in these waters for about 6 years and it never comfortable for me. Cold, murky, churning swells tossing me around. That was a good days.

    I captured this shot of the tree in 2010. Check out the sugar pine on right. Got to be at least a ten footer. The understory in that grove (Calaveras Big Trees) is so dense in places it's impossible to get the compositions you'd like to get on the trees. As well the south grove in that park. In comparison the groves in SNP (Giant Forest) are a lot more clear under the trees. Much better shooting there.

    Hi Kevin, it's Mike Meredith.

    Sorry - I just discovered this message today. I go by Tuebor here and over on TreeBuzz also.

    I did meet you briefly at the Bartlett open house back in March. Since then I friended you on Facebook and joined the Rope Runner group. I connected with Johnny Pro when he was in town and videoed his TRT explanation. I met Jeremy and Mike a day or two later while we were climbing in a park. (Mike tried my skateboard and decided to get one for himself - but don't blame me if he cracks his skull and misses work, LOL.)

    I live in Grosse Pointe Woods and took up recreation climbing last fall after meeting Bo Burke up north, in October. Love it because I'm a kid at heart. Let me know next time you have a job on the east side - I'd like to watch. I've been out of work for a while, recovering from a bout of cancer, but when I get back later this summer I'll have some tree work for you guys.

    Mike
