    Seems like the spar that broke, the rigging point was lower than where you were cutting. If it had been higher, less force. But that piece that broke probably weak anyway. Better rope running might have helped. Add it all up in physics, force won. Kudos on everyone living another day.

    Licensed Timber Operator. We need it for the permitting process and if we sell the wood or wood product.

    Back in Cali. Started my LTO class. And since any tree work I have done does not count towards my hours of 3000 I need for my application, I'll have to take a lessor rated restricted license until I can accumulate those hours over the next 2 or 3 years. Basically, a firewood type harvest license. Oh well, getting an education for when it comes time. At least I know the players and the game better.

    I bet you could! I was just looking at cost/benefits...you are right for sure, it isn't a Jaguar, nor is it trying to be.

    Google tells me that beastie costs right at $20,000. That is insanity. My 2000 Jaguar XKR cost about half that. Of course, any top of the line NEW motorcycle is that much or even much more. So it is insanity to ME, I should say...the Jag is so much more machine, I don't even think it worthwhile to compare them, now that I look at it calmly... :)

    Nope. And that whole business of rope climbing wearing spurs is craziness, sorry but that is my well earned opinion.

    These being over 100 inch dbh...yup, probably :D. Not that an overhead safety line helps except if you have to bail :). Bounce and Old Monkey were the only contemporary aged 'Housers to really knock it down. That's no slam...it is harder than it looks, and without some trial, error, and blood, sweat, and tears it is nothing short of a tough go. Jerry B. and I, enjoying our Elderhood to the max, just set the high safety line and stood around looking important :D. Been there, done that, pictures do exist, so we had not much to prove, thankfully. And now that I think about it...I don't recall any overhead safety lines back in the good ol' days...Do you, Jer? :/: 8). Sure was a fun getogether, absolutely.

    Darin was just as strong on that huge Doug. Amazing abilities the climbers here in Butch's Treehouse have displayed, time and again.

    For those not with us back then...7 years ago now!!! And for members of longer standing who'd like to wander down memory lane :D. Sean the Bounce absolutely killed it in our spur climbing festival getogether. A great climber, old school and new. Link to the thread, lots of great pictures, many by Jerry Beranek. That was some fun. http://masterblasterhome.com/showthread.php?13393-Treehouse-Flipfest-2010&highlight=flipfest

    Totally a question of learning the required technique. In addition to Sean's pointers, always rotate your foot forward, never to the rear.

    Nice, Dave. I still say when Butch and I get to be billionaires (he promised to tell me how he did it when he does :)), I'm going to bring you and your tools out here to Oregon to build me my ultimate shop/garage.
