    I can do a quick touch up in less time than I can swap a chain out. Mostly because if I remove the bar I gotta clean and dress it.

    That wouldn't fly here either. With very few exceptions, my kids use Mrs. (Ms.) and Mr. XYZ when addressing adults.

    Good luck jay. Hopefully I captured the bad luck for the day. Sitting at the urgent care because I took a nice swing and lost track of my foot placement. Buried my left spur into my right heel. Doesn't hurt much but I need to get a tetanus shot. Kinda mad at myself at the moment. Boots are no longer waterproof.

    I'm going to see the original treemek in action soon. I honestly can't wait but am also a bit saddened. I'm approaching the big 4-0 and need to back off on the physical side a bit but not sure I want to let go yet.

    I don't get to do many conifer prunes(never) but when I set a line I try to be close to the stem and get the down line as close as possible with at least a whole wrap on the way down. Funny to read this as I had to do it twice today. Removals of course.

    I cheated today in the snow. It's cold weather and I had my guys blow the snow off of the wet land area we have to cross tomorrow. All small trees to be removed. Hopefully it'll be frozen enough to not need timbermats for the miniskid to drag it out. I hate snow by the way. Several times today I couldn't see my guys on the ground. Thank Paul for the Ropetek comm systems

    Just like a dead tree. They rot at the transition point first. I would avoid concrete but if you use it as a footing make sure it drains at the footing level. If you pour to above grade, this at least makes replacement easy.

    I'm not even gonna look inside next time they tell me it's scored. I'll just run it till it explodes. That or take it home and do a complete rebuild. I'm sure between some common sense and advise given here I can figure out how. This one goes in the parts pile.

    Got a brand spanking new ms461 today. Getting a new saw is great but I'm a tad upset over my old one. Top end was just rebuilt ( less than a month on it) and according to the dealer the bottom end locked up. Piston and jug were toasted. I think the carb boot had an air leak causing it to run lean. Now I've got a box of parts.

    Where does he get those wonderful toys? Damnit Carl, I was hoping to beat you to one of these. I'm going out to watch the original treemek in action soon. We both know how "serious" my boss can be with things but I just wanna see it up close and watch it work. From what I've seen these things are awesomely built. Very well engineered machines. Even better, I can drive there to see them put it together. How long is the wait if one was to order it today? 3 months?

    As much as I like the other style videos, this one came at a good time. I guess I just like a variety. Some talking ones and then a cool Hollywood style.

    I shit everything down around 4:00. We were just clearing out scrub brush and I looked down the ROW to see that two decent sized trees had fallen across. No time to be in the woods. Of course the big old rotten ass oak is still standing. It's coming down tomorrow, AM or PM, I'll decide in the morning. I'm just tired of looking at it and it's the last thing on that section till I can have the stumper and restoration crews take over. I did manage to sneak two more low climbs in this afternoon. Inspector had to poop for one and I asked him to run and get us some Gatorade for the other.

    Got to be a weird feeling reaching that deep with no visibility. I just got grounded by the inspectors. 30 mph sustained winds with 45-50 mph gusts. I'm just so terribly upset about this;). Gonna go hunt down some ground work and short trees that are not in the woods.

    You were good for another couple of inches Stig. Kinda had a crappy day. Was irritated from the time I woke up. 90% chance of rain and no call or text. Get to the shop and no one was called off. Everyone was whining about the weather but went out. I left and was about 40 feet up a tree when the guys showed up. Because of the tight location we left the chipper overnight ( right under my next removal) and no one else seemed to think it was a good idea to assist the driver backing in. After 20 minutes of waiting on them the chipper was moved and I did my thing. Truck was full and they pulled the chipper up and unhooked. Drive right off the matting and buried it. I gave them a ride back to the shop and have been doing what the young guys do on rain days. I seem to have caught a good buzz and it's not even 2:00 pm.

    The Ariel service guy came out today since I had problems with my truck on Saturday. The good news is im getting better at diagnosing the problems. Bad news is I was right. The pump is done. It would give just enough to make things look like they wanted to work but not enough to do it. Only reason I came up with that was the outriggers were slow. If they were fine I would've guessed the safety interlocks were messed up. Overnighting a new one. Spent the afternoon climbing. Hit five smallish maples from on tie in and took out two more tall ones before the boss shut us down. We all were hoping he would since it was pissing rain all afternoon. Days like today I wish I had a wraptor. I'm whooped. My hats off to all of you that climb daily. I used to and wish I still did when I have these kinda days. I'm out of shape.

    My family supports you. We eat the heck outta some cauliflower. Well actually we eat a very wide variety of veggies. Today was a well needed break from the gas company. I did a quick ditch clearing for the county. 28 floppers. Whack a log off for firewood and chip the tops. Brought the skid steer home and gonna make a lot of logs into manageable wood tomorrow. The youngster on my crew is gonna help. Said he'd do it for food and beer. The wife is making a big batch of chile and hopefully I don't drink to much of the case tonight. I'll pay him good as well. We've been putting in so many hours that I have nothing ready for next winter as far as wood goes. I really don't want to see all of my overtime go to the electric company to heat my house next year.

    Loved it. That's how I prefer to work. Usually our guy that grinds stumps does more damage than my crew does. That mini is a great tool to have. Wishing I would've bought one years ago and been light years ahead of everyone.

    Looked like the circus was in town this afternoon. Should've went with my gut and just climbed the damn thing. Both of the bosses were convinced I didn't want to climb it so I put the truck in there. Three hours later I got to start the removal with a 2005 international 4300 taking up most of the drop zone. It is what it is, and that's a mess. Gonna finish and winch the truck out tomorrow. I'm getting tired. Only a month left of this nonsense.
