    Deva...you absolutely must get secure storage arranged, inside. No ifs, ands, or buts. I'd go insane if I were in your situation, re some of my prime business assets out in the open.

    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.

    Stig, in this part of the world, you and your company would not be called loggers. Probably the most common term would be "custom cutters". "Loggers", in contrast, are more like general contractors in the house building trade. They might hire custom cutters, often the log trucking, and usually have in house capacities for all steps in between. For my money, I'd rather be a custom cutter than a logger, any day.

    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.

    Very pretty, Mick. I rode a Norton 850, back in the deep recesses of time. About the same vintage...I think '73. White with black pinstripes and trim. Was too much fun, too fast, and I feel lucky to have survived those days :D.

    No careful working with all the skill in the world can ever keep the off the wall, strange, and in the end unavoidable mishap from taking any one of us down. If you think you are immune from accidents because you are smart, know your job, and pay attention all the time to all potential risks...I think you are mistaken; you can still be struck down by the freak occurrence that cannot be anticipated. PPE can sure help buffer us from those crazy events, but are no guarantee either. But it's simply not working smart to eschew their assistance in mitigating the damage from accidents.

    I never hooked up to anything nearly as heavy as those logs, nor with tongs as large either...but I have pulled some decent sized wood with tongs...infrequently it was some trouble to get a solid grip, but never was it hard to knock them loose.

    Well now, that's a good point. We ran a Lewis with a 056, never with bar oil in it. But we never tried to swap back and forth to a bar and chain from the winch. So I still don't actually know. But I'd be inclined to believe Bailey's.

    Personal note, I no longer have that medication that had 40% alcohol in an inhaler. I am on 3 other ones to replace it. My meds cost about 500.00 monthly billed out to my insurance. Not counting doctors visits to keep then every 3 months now. Used to be once a month. So. Now other companies get to add to their bottom line

    You can still get arrested with out a drop Mick. My breathlizer (spelling?) Came up dirty because of my asthma medicine. I was profiled coming from a bar, pulled over for crossing a shoulder line, which was bull, and told and written up as failing my road side test, which was bull. I had a witness. I went to jail with my blood alcohol level showing .12 for 5 hours. They watched me hit my inhaler at the hospital and denied it. Yeah, simple solution, don't embibe in anything and drive. But lawyers, mfgs of all the gear for DUI tests, and agencies that train law enforcement make tons of money. Private jails make tons of money. The system is set up to break you and place you in the system while adding funds to bottom lines. My little incident cost me thousands with lawyer fees, impounded car, DUI classes, fines, etc. I got off lucky because I pleaded down my charge and won in a sense. No DUI on record unless I screw up. Which ain't gonna happen. People think "the system" makes the money or government. The money goes to those that support the system. Or orbit the system. It employs people and makes things.c

    Block chain looks like more of what I can use Drop box for. Drop box here at my place shares files or a data base with 3 computers and a phone. So anyone updating the data base (of which each computer and phone has) automatically updates the other 3 as well. In fact, we can sit down and do data entry on say invoicing all at the same time with different books, adding to the spread sheet (data base file) this way. We can also do that on Google Docs. But Google acts as our data base storage. Google would or a cloud would be more of a block chain. As far as Bit coin. I have a hard time grasping it.
