    Do it!!! This is how I access a part of my warehouse that is far away from the stairs...tedious to use the stairs and navigate HVAC and low beams to get to this part of the warehouse. Probably not osha approved.:D <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/_B_LD-SGY7w" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    The best solution is to get them delivered to a USA address and that person then deliver them PERSONALLY to Mr. Stig! :D It's pretty tempting.

    A doubled line is just one leg doubled over... granted, each leg takes a lighter load of you. But if a leg is cut or you TIP breaks, down you go. It was hard for me as well. The doubled line just feels more stable especially on limb walks. And the 2-1 is nice. I guess, using the hybrid devises helps a lot in helping some over come this, as you can switch back and forth through out the climb. I feel this eases the nerves for some over time. Trusting the gear is key. Especially the Itty bitty hitch cord for most. And knots. JME.

    That is what niggles thru my mind about SRT...a bit disconcerting to me seeing just one line supporting my weight. I did a rock climbing wall at the Huntsville Space and Rocket Center on Monday. Once I got to the top I started climbing down on the holds...the kid running the show said, "nope, you gotta let go and let the auto-belay device do its thing". I made myself lean back and trust the thing to engage and do the lowering...but I didn't like it even a little bit. Of course I acted all nonchalant and bounded down...but I was cussing inside.:evil:

    Stig, that is a great story. Those Sena units really make a difference in breaking in a new climber.

    Levi wants a .17 We are looking around now as the length of his trigger pull is still pretty short.

    No nest experience here. I did cut a chunk awhile back at about 40 feet on a removal...when it hit the ground 4 adult squirrels exploded out of it. Two ran to other trees, one just lay there..thought it was dead. My son approached it with an axe, thinking to do a coupe de grace and that one came back to life and headed for the woods. The last one came back 40' up the tree and met me. I saw him coming and wasn't sure whether to sh**t or go blind. I drew my Silky and prepared for a tree fight. Rocky went to the other side of the tree and disappeared. That was a worse feeling than seeing him tearing up the tree! The tree was hollow and I could only guess he snuck back in the holler while I was looking around the trunk for him. I made the next cut wondering if he was going to bust out of there while I was cutting and start a real fight. Got the chunk cut, pushed it off and when it hit the ground Rocky exploded out and headed for his buddies in the woods. Crazy ass squirrel...survived TWO tumbles inside a hollow log from 35-40 feet. They are tough critters. I would not not want to mess with a mama squirrel.

    The mud has been horrible, hard to tell they are white most the time. Sam was short for Samson. Thanks Stig. I hope some day to get a video of Sam and the kids on the trampoline. It can be quite entertaining :D

    I hope you are dry inside and working on that shop. Crazy weather bro. Should be flooded streets all over LA. Probably mud slides too. We'll probably see more levees break and dam crisis here today. Be careful out there.

    Excellent Paul. Just as easy as the HH. You just clip back into the center ring and do it. I swapped back and forth in the tree just like I do your devise.

    Why yes Sam... That top went KABLEWY all over the burn pile :D <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/E52E0SAPyZM" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> Well, today, we start another week of high winds and rain... Storm supposed to be as bad as last month. :P:|: Gets old. Woke up first this morning, after going to sleep grateful I got to climb and prune live trees for 2 days, to a call from a competitor. Seems I needed a heads up that OSHA is crawling all over us now and they got tagged. Their guy got caught starting a saw wrong, and then they started checking everything. I think I posted semi recent we had a guy killed up here pulling a top. SO now we have 8 inspectors listening for chainsaws and seeking them out. Ohhh goody.... So I have a week to make sure all our paper is in order, double check and triple check all our safety procedure and gear. Guess we need to keep to those 15 minute safety meetings and document. Yada Yada Yada. My friendly competition might very well end up subbing to one of the big companies (or getting leased by them) to keep in business. I guess they hit them pretty hard in fines. Ahhhhhh the life :|:

    Low and slow. Test... But easily adjusted once in the tree as well in case. It has two adjustment points. So you really need to dial it in just like a hitch for the rope you are using. Is it sliding when you weight it? Tighten the cam (s). Is it binding too hard? Loosen a cam or cams. Low and slow. Then try some short ascents. Up, down... Up ... down... How did it feel? You are already familiar with how your hitch cord works on your rope... This is just a mechanical hitch.. You want it to grab when weighted and tend nicely when advancing. Like anything, you don't just pull it out of the box and go work climb on it. Common sense.

  1. Yeah, thanks....we can all learn something if we are open to it. Brian has issues, I reckon...I'll just let him stew and work out his own way to be involved.

    I enjoy your posts...glad to have you at the House.
