    PCTREE replied to a thread Motorcycling. in The Rec Room
    Do a track day and just watch who is faster than you. Next session follow them out and follow their lines, don't go WAY beyond your limits following them as you can crash when the sudden realization that shit they have race slicks on. You know what I mean find the right rider and follow him. if you really feel faster following him you might want to introduce yourself to him and figure out if he is cool with you following him, if not punch ups can occur I liked the Duke because its not a race bike. I personally never want to race again, so expensive to win. Track days are a blast though if you can find a good crowd

    Squish, I have been looking for that exact bike. I have a KTM 390 Duke which I like a lot but went to the track last weekend (watch for thread) and am thinking the 300 super sport class might be fun.....

    Brian I would be quite happy to make the kind of money you are talking about. I have no heavy equipment so I would gladly take the work you may not be able access with your bucket and/or may not want. So feel free to hit me up! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    I like that set up Gary. Especially the bar holding ropes and harnesses. Once you put in some shelving that should be a pretty sweet set up. Thanks for the post 👍 Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Thanks for the information Brian. I hope people don't think I am one to take advantage of people! There are times when I do well in business I start to feel bad lol. The market here really sucks thanks to a few hacks and recently two large Tree Service's that are trying to pay off all their new equipment. They are bidding jobs so low it would be foolish to try and compete. I have learned that the hard way this year. Their focus is on strictly volume and not quality. Like you said the big money jobs are already done. I think the whole experience would be good in general though. If I can help people get their homes back in order and make good money doing it then it's good for everybody. Also I don't want to be the cheapest or the most expensive. I want to lay my head down at night knowing I helped someone by providing excellent service. At the same time I make money. People need someone they can trust during these stressful times so if anything it's a win / win for both parties. Don't know if I will make it in time though. The soonest would be by the weekend. Thanks for all the input! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Bump: I was thinking about renting a U-Haul, loading it up and heading out that way. I have a Toyota Tacoma and no room to lock up all my saws, ropes, rigging, climbing gear, etc.., Not to mention all the other supplies needed for however long I plan to stay. If my ex can keep the kids I would like to go for 3-4 weeks maybe come home for a week or two then go back for another 3-4 weeks. I might just rent a big U-Haul trailer first trip then come back and buy a bigger 3/4 ton crew cab truck with a locking bed cover. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Shoot years ago in the middle of winter Charlotte NC had an ice storm. Friend of mines mother said it was worse tree damage than a hurricane. I drove down there with a couple of guys. An hour or so out all the radio stations started telling people not to hire out of state tree guys. It was crazy we were treated like scum and never got a single job. Wasted time and money on that trip, never again

    PCTREE replied to a thread HH 2 in Gear Forum
    Sherrill ripping off the Comm systems was inevitable as I had no legal protection and they have NO ethics, the really disheartening thing was the arb community never even mentioned it. I put years of my life into Ropetek, every free moment I had and introduced a rope ascender at 1/4 the price of the next available unit, constantly fought retailers who wanted to raise the price so they could make better margins. I built the Wraptors to be a safe and durable as I could for tree use and did so in the US at an affordable price. Same with the HHs, cheapest climbing device out there and bomb proof. I sold the comm systems for $310 per helmet which was the exact same price you could buy the components from the cheapest source but already assembled. I did this as I knew how important they were for safety. Everything I did was genuinely to help the tree workers. Im just burnt out on it, I focus my energy now on my tree company which BTW makes way more money than Ropetek ever did and have started to ride my bike again which I gave up for 7 years. I still have lots of ideas for products but with Sherrill lurking to steal everything there is no incentive to put effort into them Yes Im a bitch

    PCTREE replied to a thread bad pick in Climbing Forum
    From a crane Ops point of view I really don't give 2 hoots if a pice flips like that as long as the climber is safe. Think about it that pice is top heavy admittedly but only by about 400lbs (????) So bottom line is you effectively have a 400lbs load moving at the speed of the mid tips in a circular motion and then coming to a gradual halt. Theres very little additional loading. That pick didn't look too big to me ( if rigged correctly} . I assumed the but hit the strap and popped it but RB says no. Guess its gotta be shitty strap combined with friction of the strap on bark as the relative angle of force changes. The guy in the lift was lucky as shit!! Guess there was probably no ONE cause just a myriad of Jackassery

    The material is 4041 steel, very wear resistant but can be drilled conventionally​.

    Wow that is an old one. Believe it or not, but I turned that dogbone on a lathe and drilled the holes. Cannot believe the amount of time I used to put in for ropetek, those days are done.

Biography:
I learned how to climb working for a very successful tree service in New Orleans in 1996. After working for that company for a year I decided to start my own. Didn't work out then so I became a professional firefighter which had great benefits but wasn't happy. Finally after years of dragging through my days I was forced to make a choice. I decided to begin working for myself which led me to climbing again. Started new business in 2011. I am no longer a "hack" ;) I am a State Licensed Arborist who is learning to be a great Arborist!
