    treetopflyer replied to a thread Bulldog Bone in Gear Forum
    Ohh yeah Randy! Now you just need another bulldogbone if you dont have two haha and you could string a web up there with them lines ; ) . I have two bulldogs and when employing both at a time with similar setup to what your descriptions you certainly can build lots of super safe angles for feeling safe as all get out. I like the thought of having an access line staying in place that's lowerableble and climbable if another climber should need to come up. @ Cory thanks man. Everyone around here already knows trees are the answer , but doesn't hurt to reiterate! : ' )

    . I have found on taller trees useing a static base anchor leg of line attaching it to a more responsive line that runs bette r in the bone for working end such as tachyon works really well for eliminating the excessive bounce :D

    Ordering from Australia I have never had a incorrect order from treestuff and get my deliveries in six days to Adelaide, shame I can not recommend some other suppliers that I have dealt with in the past. In australia I order from treegear and they may have made the odd error but try hard to make it up to you the same values I love from treestuff. and the odd free t-shirt never goes astray - thank you Luke!.

    Burham the worst one was a infected Norfolk Island pine which was entirely coated from tip to tail in sap, every section of trunk, crotch or limb was coated in white sap ranging from a thin skin to pockets thicker than my thumb. By lunch time my pulleys had turned from inny's to outy's , the cam on my pole strap was gummed to a stop, my prussic had glued to the rope in fact I was sticking to the tree by that point. Only solution we had was petrol which I had sent up, this freed me from the tree and opened the cam on my polestrap and with another climbing system I was able to descend and then could see why the grounds people were complaining about how the work rope was running by looking at the pulleys. Never had as bad again but this heavy sap stuck in some slings and rope sections hardened to the point that we threw it out or cut it out of the materials. Since then I have been wondering how to wash the sap out while it was still fresh and had not hardened yet without using a petroleum based product on the ropes which as a general rule I have been avoiding.

    I would have just warmed the truck up and been done away with the 201 but not everybody has that passion or luxury so I sold it at a loss and bought a rebuilt 200t for the same money. much happier now. sorry you had to go through all that nonsense Treehugger just to try and get a working saw.

    cory the faster growing eucs like flood gums or tassie blues and my old foe the lemon scented will barber in the right conditions. I have learnt not to try a scarf close to a obvious knot or union when under wind loading or side weighted. lemon scented will also tear in the most horrible manner leaving extended wood splinters several inches to a foot long - they make great toothpicks.

    I do not have any objections to Aussie week, my posts on another thread recently are classic Oz behaviour in many ways the larrikin son stays strong still in the wide brown land. Graeme is spoken of in the same tones as Gerry or Reg though those gentlemen may be too modest to be placed on high that is the general concensus that Graeme is our old breed and someone to inspire or emulate.

    La becasse, I would recommend the Proposition , not a happy film. a sunday too far away, the man from snowy river, The Tracker and Red Hill. that should give a broad view of the countryside, my favourite movie as a kid was storm boy.

    well coming in at 187cm and 65 kilos I am told that I am a little bit lanky but there is advantages both on and off the ground. I will endeavour at about every turn to take advantage of any camouflage whether natural or manmade to 'take care of business". having learnt the hard way the perils involved using the chip truck and how that has repercussions led to bold and ingenious schemes on how to accommodate my pre-existing medical situation and the desire to avoid using the customers toilet or going into their houses. I use the magicians trick of hiding in plain sight quite regularly, amazing what people won't or don't see when they are 'elsewhere' and not really paying attention. being able to enter small places like gaps between sheds and fences or under bushes is quite useful in my case. But this one time I was caught out quite literally like a dog in the desert looking for a bush, any bush will do. having just reduced a sweet gum and sailed down I heard a horrible rumbling in my belly followed by some violent contractions and knew there and then that I was in a pickle, I went dashing for a vacant block two doors down and pelted towards the back fence where there was some african box thorn on the fence line it being the only form of cover in this otherwise empty paddock - nothing but low grass between me and the main road. unfortunately didn't finish the race and messed myself pretty badly, turns out my over indulgence in chocolate covered almonds the night before had come back to haunt me so I filled my daks with ' Hot nut slurry' for lack of a better term. my undies now being totally unretreviable I decided to try and very carefully remove my boots socks and cutter pants and without any further contamination so proceeded to clean myself with a local weed called soursob which is a bit like a green baby wipe - soft and moist but not really absorbent but no prickles. having removed my boots, socks and pants without further incident I was in the process of dumping the rest down when a learner driver and instructor choose that moment to set up on the kerb directly in front of me for some parking practise. I looked over at them and then went well if this is what you want then here it is, dropped my strides exposing all and sundry then went about cleaning the affect area before restoring my dignity to a more fitting style for public places. they continued to conduct the lesson I went back to the boss and explained why I had rushed off we both had a good laugh and finished the job off. which brings me to another question - alternate materials for wiping ones arse - what have you improvised with out in the field?

    I stealth poop all the time - back yards, front yards, bushland, parks, medium strips , nature strips in behind shopping centre carparks I mean like anywhere I see a opportunity - doggie clean up bags are great for not offending the customer and no shovel needed. come on folks if you can pick up after your dog why can't you pick up after your self? fyi I had major experimental surgery 25 years ago to my liver, small intestine and bowel so if I need to go I go! and yes tucker I have crapped myself and had to go commando at work a couple of times in the past - don't like the way the jewels roll under the leg straps with no reg grundies to keep everything where it should be. It has got to the point where I would rather go outdoors than enter the customers house - nothing wrong with an outside dunny except if you are nervous around spiders. I once went in a long drop with a beehive on the inside wall - they didn't seem to mind - didn't sting me anyways.
