    depends on the terrain I think. horse logging still is the only way to log certain places. they can get into a lot of places machines can't. for selective logging in tight geography they can't be beat.

    Chaps are GOLD. Only down side is they get too hot, at times, and the leg straps can hang you up in the brush.

    There is a little disclaimer to this and I must confess that when people say its all the medias fault it does hit a little bit close to home. My father was a war reporter in Vietnam embedded with the South Vietnam soldiers in Huey at the start of the Tet offensive. There, he got his eye blown out and was shipped out to the Philippines where he recovered. One of many stories if you can imagine. My mother was a reporter for the Boston globe in the early 70s. Beat reporter from then all the way past when She was covering education and school board meetings for the Denver Post when the Columbine shootings happened. This profession is important. My floor was littered with newspapers growing up. It went so deep in my family that I delivered newspapers as 5th and 6th grader: waking up at 6:00 and delivering 50 papers from a shopping cart while jamming Judas priest on a walkman. It is a brave and persecuted profession. They are the first people shot when a stalin or pol pot comes into town. They are on the scene with the first responders, they sit through hours and hours of school board meetings at odd hours of the day giving the people the rundown of what was said. Getting up before their children and coming home after they are in bed. I was taught growing up that the pen is mightier than the sword and its why i get riled up when there is any hint of taking my pen away. Similar to how some people feel about their guns. So of course this is all coming from a pretty skewed and bias perspective when it comes to the "media."

    that's crazy. if you want to know what's going on in the middle east, Africa, asia, amazing coverage of American Indian affairs, Al Jazeera has no peer. also great for environmental issues. I also enjoy the economist, wall street journal, and the New Yorker. WSJ I read on line, the economist and new Yorker are good in print. and I like national geographic for the pictures. shit I dont care if I'm getting brainwashed, I would be bored as hell without reading.

    my liberal news is NPR and N.Y. Times. my international is RT and aljazeera. never found bbc very informative. my conservative news is fox which is too shallow and more like cnn and then there is breitbart which is mainly opinion. I read the detroit free press and also the metrotimes for local stuff. I like aljazeera because they rarely ever talk about our president unlike pretty much every other site which is obsessed with him. nor do they talk about sex scandals which has also dominated everything. RT does have some good stuff. I guess the talk radio I find interesting but I couldn't call it news. I want to hear what happened today. you pretty much have to wade through a lot of shit to find that. Definitely open to suggestions!

    I don't know much about salon. as for racists, well its part of life I guess. everyone is racist to some degree. some people are violently so. its all a matter of degree. I don't care for the ideology much. Some folks claim it doesn't exist or isn't an issue or part of life. read breitbart comment section and its clear its what drives a lot of people.

    I read breitbart too. I read the comment section which is insightful to see that there are a lot of straight up unabashed racusts out there. there is no sugar coating it. to me that is helpful news I find it pretty fascinating. if I'm up at 11 o'clock you can bet I'm listening to Michael Savage. I love that guy. kind of like I love you Jim and Bob.

    where did you get that statistic? I spend a lot of time listening to radio which reaches more people than anything. that clearly does not tilt liberal. regardless, news and events happen regardless of your opinion about them. if the US invades another country, I want someone to tell me about it. nothing stopping a conservative from telling the story.

    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
