    Got this beast ready to line out tomorrow. Had to fell a pondo that was next to it. It fit in the hole since it was skinny and brittle. This Sugar has a serious spread to it. 48" Dbh. Try and get some vid.

    Good article Patrick. I think about things like that a lot. I try my hardest to be as safe as possible at work. I do everything the way it's supposed to be done. Unless it makes the task more dangerous. Which as we all know happens more often than you'd think . I fell timber for years. I've owned my own tree service for even longer. Safety is always on my mind. What's the worst I've been hurt in 25 years? I fell in a well leaving the gym one night. It was an old well not in use. Had one tile above ground someone had backed into it and moved the tile about 8 inches. After leg night and I couldn't hardly walk I slip off in it. Nice piece of rebar sticking out. Rips my leg open up one side and eats all the skin off the other. Had to have stitches. Long story but we are never safe. I climb, race bikes, fly PPGs and all kinds of dumb things. And then that happens. Years ago we worked for a well known timber company. I was supposed to wear hard hat, steel toed saw resistant boots, chaps, ear muffs, safety glasses and a screen, carry a first aid kit with a mirror and a whistle. And about 8 other things. You can't do that in 100 degree weather and survive. Not to mention get anything done. Safety is great. I'm as safety conscious as anyone but things happen. In flying its called risk vs reward. You learn the risk and if it's worth the reward then you do it knowing the dangers. We do that everyday as arborists. Again nice article Patrick.

    I've seen a video where a guy uses 3 rings on an adjustable sling and the middle ring is a bit higher than the outside 2 rings. It makes a very nice bend radius. I'll see if I can find it.

    Deva, I should get a picture of the bollard on my Wraptor. I believe it is at least an 09 demo model. I believe I got to fly it at the WCGTG. Have to belay the rope now like adding weight to an SRT line. It will run up 9/16-5/8ths fine. It's on it's third clutch spring set and second set of clutches. 2nd fuel tank and clutch housing from a 60 foot fall. 2nd on off switch. 3rd set of fuel lines, filters and primer. Takes a licking and keeps on ticking. Nice score buddy. :thumbup:

    Hate what CA has become. Anyway. It is not just the immigrants. A lot of it is policy for aid. We still have a rash of folks that are homeless or just plain lost about everything and are under employed. Remember that bubble thingy not so many years ago when real estate crashed and people lost home on bad loans. Yeah, we are still feeling that here. Look up homeless in SF or LA. Plenty of news there. A lot of industry has fled the state as well since it is so expensive to have a business here.

    As I recall; you made cash arrangements, had the procedure done and paid it out right, only to receive another bill you had to dispute.

    Yup! You have to visit to understand it. Or grow up around it or live there. Some of those streets are beyond steep. They laugh at 8% grades. I bet people blow equipment motors from oil starvation on some of them.

    I believe if you really want and need to work, most likely you will find something. May not always be want you know or want .....but. There was one time in MA during the 80s that finding work was extremely difficult for me. I had worked my way up to press operator in a factory. When the factory was purchased by an overseas company, a lot of us lost our jobs. A lot of people lost jobs back then in other areas of mfg. Robotics and computers took some of them. Automation. And there was a recession going on. Less product needed to be mfg. I took the unemployment while I looked. Buggered my toe on a lawn mower and the temp disability helped. Then they had a program to retrain me through the unemployment office after my toe healed. State paid all my wages except .50 per hour by a company willing to train me. I can't remember for how long. But obviously cheaper at min wage for the unemployment insurance and it gave me work and a new trade that paid better later. Not near what I made at the previous factory, but enough for the time coupled with a part time gig I put together for myself. Seemed a good program for the times.

    That is how right to work is in AZ. Easier to find another job than get unemployment. I was able to join a plumbers union though. But the shop I worked for was non union. So it was more of a learn here thing, and maybe we can find you work later.

    Sometimes it gets a little hectic. I was in 5 groups but had to cut back a little when I got married. Two of the groups have a weekly practice and several shows a month. The other group only does shows. They don't really ever practice. And it shows but they have fun.

    Congrats Fiddler. Sounds like a heck of a group. I've got blisters on 3 fingers try to get in shape for February. Busy bass month. I'm in 3 different groups full time. Even then I still want to play more. We've only done one show in December. We've got a UCP benefit tomorrow that we play every year at this time. We'll be at SPBGMA first week if February. It's the highlight of my picking year. If anyone is close to Nashville that weekend it's definitely worth checking out. All the jamming you can handle. I'll usually sleep 3 ir 3 hours in 3 days.

    So we had a visitor at our job site today. We were burning a ton of brush, which usually flushes out game for the raptors. In fact, this property and a couple others, they have us and the HOs pegged as food source flusher outers. :lol: I was less than 15 feet under this one. Let me walk up and walk all the way around him.
