    People will do some pretty awful things when scrambling for a dead persons money.

    Poor bear. When there's no Butchs to be found, chicken will suffice.

    Because if those handful or two of rich bastards didn't have all the money, maybe I could get my hands on a bit more of it. Share the wealth brother.

    Sure hire the cheapest if all other aspects of the received service will be equal. I doubt that's usually the case. Impact, cleanup, length of time, reliability. Lots of variables for the consumer to consider besides just 'the cheapest'. I say no union, fend for yourselves.

    Crazy conditions Stephen. Stay safe man. I hate to think of all those dead trees and saturated ground. Let alone poor visibility and a freaking bear!

    Crazy job. I never would've guessed it was a job, but it makes sense I guess. The only way to somewhat try to control men fishing is to have independent observers. Wow. I bet there's no corruption at all in that line of work.

    My best bud from high school did the pacific crest trail end to end, Mexico to Canada, straight out of high school. Man I wanted to do it so bad too. We planned it all together, read all the books, planned out the drops. I had no funding though, I went logging while he went walking. Such is life. He road on the back of another buddies motorbike down to Mexico and then walked back.

    Beavers used to chew me up a hell of a lot of treework. Chewing on trees near homes. Dealt with some dicey compromised trees because of those furry bastards.

    I'm in decent shape, if you think swinging a heading rope is anything like running a saw in a tree, well you've never done team roping, I can tell you that. As the header if you haven't caught in the first handful of seconds, it's all over. And the curious part about it, is I had carpal tunnel surgery on my right hand(I'm left handed) and while there's discomfort it greatly helped the numbness, lost strength though. Don't need a lot of strength to swing a rope. But I could never do it with my left hand because of the numbness. So the ironic part is if I hadn't had that surgery On my offhand I'd never be able to team rope. As headers swing with the right in team roping, there is no real way around that. Of course I get by. I'm a chimney sweep now, and have to use my hands quite a bit still. It's nothing like the abuse of running saw all day, or pulling on cold steel(highlead logging) with all your might. It's not the only reason I left treework behind, it burned me out. I'm detail oriented, and can worry every last detail. The constant stress of laying it on the line over and over again was wearing me out. Now as a sweep, when I worry every little detail it just makes me better at my job. Lol.

    I'm still watching, but I don't even do treework anymore. My wrist, tendons, hands weren't gonna take it. So I sold out. But I still have interest in the industry and it's innovations. So I do wish you the best of luck with your device.

    Being able to ask questions is good. Good luck with the rest of it. I'm up at 2:30 about to go plow a whack of snow. Always nice when that shift gets done, then I'll be doing a couple of chimneys this afternoon. Just a sucker for the punishment. Lol.

    One more reason to not have tats. The possibility of attracting a barracuda attack. Makes perfect sense to me.

    Crazy Stephen. I hope things stay stable for you. Literally. What a worry with all those dead pines around. Some long dead, a bunch of erosion isn't going to help rotting root systems any. Be safe my friend. Jim, way to go on the training. Any overall feel on how it's going so far?

    I don't know what I'd do if I was face to face with a barracuda. I snorkelled a bit in Mexico years back but luckily just saw friendly critters/fish.

    The ocean it's serious business right! I was a strong lake and river swimmer. Lessons all my youth. Toodling around in the ocean was a real eye opener to me. Up here it's full wet suit, otherwise you seize up after awhile. Maybe bareable for a short period on a hot summer day, but not long. I swam/surfed lots in the winter up here. That's when we get the surf. Cold, dark, heavy water. Not to mention what can be lurking below the surface! I'd do it again though!
