    Thanks, Sean. Glad to help. Seriously, for most, it truly is the hard knocks of life we learn best from.

    "Ignorance is bliss". I've long heard. In my elder years I ponder... will there ever be a balanced reached between mankind's petty progress and the natural world we live in?

    My Doc recommended drugs to kill the nerve pains, but after reading the long list of possible after effects from the drugs I choose to live with the pain. As I mentioned, it's not chronic".

    Same here, Butch. The sensations from the nerve damage from my crush injury literally send me reeling at times. I'm just so glad it's not chronic.

    i thought it would be a good idea to use a pole to mount my grcs on to pull a tree. It was pretty low, only a few feet off the ground. it was a bad idea. Definitly caused substantial movement. I dont even think we were pulling that hard. i imagine every pole is different. Its just a dead tree stuck back in the ground. All worked out but I wont try it again.

    my dad has one eye, lost in vietnam to a peice of shrappnel.. interesting thing about the eye as my dad explains it is the body doesnt really know the eyes are there and can treat them as a foreign body when it discovers they are there due to an injury to one. so when one gets injured, the body can attack the other one as well causing loss of sight in both eyes. It was a battle to keep sight in the non injured eye of my father. thanfully they succeeded and he has lived the last 50 odd years with no real problems

    I expected just as much an explanation. I've junked a lot of, otherwise worthy, images for that exact reason. A fatal flaw in perspective.

    This is a good thread. I've enjoyed reading the different viewpoints. Sorry, though, I haven't contributed much. I once watched a short program about, "Business Ethics". The point about it parallels those points being expressed in this thread. Same bullshit different day, I guess.

    Mutinous scaliwag's, oh my! Watch your language young man. Jomo, your detail with hacksaw and file is impeccable. Your fabrication style has developed in a new art-form. Steam Punk with an urban survival inclination. Yes indeed. I told you already I want one. Prototype, like the one shown, preferred, thank you.

    they should consider themselves lucky that I didn't film how I descended from that tree - a munter hitch on that tag-line that I was using to pull over the spar - it being my old climb line that I use only for light-duty rigging purposes. As I was told in a seminar years ago - climbing lines and rigging lines are like wives and girlfriends - may they never meet. Keep in mind that ive always wondered why i would trust a rope to pull over a backleaner but not trust it with my 175 lbs self. But, Im sure there is a reason for the practice. i do my best to stick to the book. but sometimes, im like now why cant i climb on this 15,000 lbs rated rigging line? wha?...

    loved that f8 revolver setup. I had purchased that revolver in an impulse. i had no idea what it would be used for other than look pretty. then when need struck to climb SRT, it was there on my saddle waiting for me. have hardly returned to doubled rope since. if i think about it... i should have just gone on and given in to my cravgs and bought the unicender from Morgan back in 2004. It would have saved me a lot of trouble in the long run.

    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
