    I find that appeals similarly...so yes, we are agreed, Butch :).

    Indeed...yet again I find myself impressed. Not really so much at the skill level you display day in and out, Stephen...there are more than a few I know that can bring your degree of game to the table. It is so much more the relatively short time it has taken you to get to this level. I know of NO ONE in the more than 40 years I've been in the biz who has stepped their skills up from beginner to your degree of accomplishment in the time frame that you have done so. Kudos, my friend.

    Glad y'all are having fun...please continue and especially please ignore my lack of understanding the appeal. Seems ridiculous, which probably shows both my advanced age and lack of imagination.

    Fine rig, Reg...for a Ford, it's totally top drawer :). Really, that generation of Ford diesels are awfully hard to beat no matter what brand you throw into comparison.

    Not really Reg. The gap at the codoms was terribly tight towards the end. I made the cut towards the middle instead of boring it. No pinch on the saw that way. He would lift and they would float away towards the road. Load never passed over me.

    Nice truck Reg! Won't pull fast, but she'll pull. Here some picts from caning the remainder of the stem. Better Stig? Out camping with the scouts this weekend. Just came down to the beach from Fremont Peak. No Internet up there.

    Sorry to say I've come up empty...must have passed along all the copies I had, Tommy. If I run across one in future, I'll remember your interest.

    Damn Pete, that is seriously ugly. I had to use the basket on the crane today after two picks and some binding of the trunk and a branch union. Nasty bugger. Don't know if Mike got and pics. Nail on the head Stig. Hate these dead buggers. Some fodder from yesterday after rigging some logs off so the crane handled the last 4 picks over an electric box and a drop off. Used the crane to load them onto and into trailers and went to the next nasty. Levi in the pics for reference.

    Top it they asked? No says I. Probably already dead from beetle attack and topping not only bad for the tree, but the turpine Released from topping will probably draw the beetles in to finish the job. So today, we start dismantle after someone else topped it. All stripped and chipped today. Upper topping at 100 feet. Tomorrow, negative blocking and gin pole now that the codoms are stropped in two places. Crane on Friday for the larger wood before we go crane out a nasty cracked and dead oak.

    Bid the job by the tree adding them all up. Remember that clean up and wood removal can be 1/3 to 1/2 of the entire bid. http://masterblasterhome.com/showthread.php?19429-45-Trees-3-climbers-3-weeks-of-residential-logging

    I must not be seeing things as they really are. I can't figure why most if not all of those couldn't be felled. Pictures never tell the whole story.

    I see what look like potentially good deals frequently on Craig's List. Often units removed from an RV.

    Yes...but if you have a large deep freeze full of food, one time keeping that from going bad could pay for itself. We don't have one. Power outages are not too uncommon here. Longest I can recall off the top of my head was 5 days. That long is rare, but half a day, or a day...once or twice a year. A few hours is several more times a year. Being without power doesn't inconvenience us much at all, if it's less than a couple of days.
