    Climbed wayyyyyyy too many crispy critters this week. The kind you go up to make them smaller, find huge cracks and pick a spot to fall 1/2 of them just to cut some loss in the understory and not hang them up in tight spots. Worked on reassembling the brown ford an got that fired up tonight. Now just some last bits and pieces to button up and fine tuning. Then test driving. Got the white f250 back from its tranny rebuild Friday only to have the truck die Sunday out in the middle of nowhere trap shooting with the kids. Had it towed Back up the hill and got it back yesterday after they fixed the fuel electrical issue. So I ended my work week, after climbing nasty dead, climbing a live 150' sugar pine. One of 3 the HO wants topped due to IPPS beetle infestation. So I did the deed. Two more to do next month. Tried for a long time to talk him into leaving the dead tops as habitat for birds of prey. He would not buy it. So, at least I did a proper job of it. All the other dudes up here would just gaff it up and hack it up. Long week.

    When we were logging we used to leave a couple of dead batteries on the loader. We used old battery cables tied to the frame so it looked like they were in use. About twice a year they would come up missing. Two batteries were enough for them to carry and most of the time they didn't bother looking for anything else. The real batteries were hidden pretty good.

    Knowing when to come down for the day is crucial. Staying past that point is very dangerous. It's hard to do, usually because there's just a few more limbs or a few more blocks. I'm 41 and still have a hard time coming down when I need to. I've been doing more recreational climbing the last couple of years. That has really helped. It has helped me be more efficient in the tree. I work out for about 1.5 hours seven days a week at the gym. That really helps. I work everything but concentrate on core and legs. And end every workout with ten hard minutes on the rowing machine giving it all I've got. Makes moving through the tree lots easier. I would like to go to one of those classes. Sounds like you're off to a good start. The more time you spend in a tree, the better you'll get.

    Yup. I am 50 foot up a tree, wondering what happened to him. I was not happy on his return.

    You know you are in trouble when you ask for the new guy to fetch your water bottle hanging on the driver side of the cab inside by the steering wheel... RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE DOOR. And he brings you back the bottle that has been sitting under the spare tire in the bed of the flat bed that had gear on top of it and still contained water from over a month ago............ True Story.

    The behaviour in its entirety was poor. Still, freedom of speech is the issue. Be careful who you decide has it and who does not. ALCU in court established that the permit for the right wing was valid and they were legally allowed to have their day. King George can duck my left nut and has no significance. The what if is moot. Quit it. And if you don't think that civil war was not more than just about anti slavery. You are entitled to your opinion. But consider, the South was relying on cheap labor for King Cotton and not industrialization. That people, is one part of that times economy. Buy losing the election, first Republican president, the south felt unheard in politics. Yes, anti slavery was a huge threat to them. They also lost the ability, as a result of the election, to expand their interests into newly aquired territories. South also saw it as unconstitutional. Not saying slavery was right. Just that it was legal and part of a major economy at the time.

    America, where the rebels are patriots. Remember, it is how it started ;) And people often mistake the civil war all about slavery and the black slaves. It started as an economic war between the money in the North and the cotton growers in the South. The war platform of the administration of the time just tied human rights to it. The right of all men created equal. But the bottom line was over taxation of the cotton industry and more. Railroad barons were involved as well. More factors to it than what you might learn in Common Core these days.

    Most of my response was to Levi and not to you Stig. You sir, I know better and have an idea of your opinion (a lot like my own often) and how you can understand things once grasped. And I also understand your sarcasm most the time when you are being as such. You are a factual man that often does not tie emotion into your opinions.
