    This is a time where a springboard shines. I thought the other day, do I need to put that springboard in the truck? I know what is coming from having done the bids. Nah. Was out at the customer's house and he added a dead cedar with a lot of sweep at the bottom, working against the way I wanted it to fall. Ended up cutting it off a short step ladder, and pounding wedges at max height. Worked out. This week's job was much easier with the spring board. Used it two or three times to fell trees just a bit short of obstacles or cut above defects in a super rotten double trunked cedar.

    I didn't follow, sorry. A munter hitch to rappell on the pull line, with a biner already on my harness is my trick. And shooting/ throwing for pull lines with a base tie. Means buying longer ropes. Mini made my 200' into a 150' and 50' yesterday.

    What can a person do when neighbors leave root pulled/ tipped tree leaning toward their house? 4 yards, common corner. Bev, elderly widow Lenore (my customer), Tyson, and Eric are the property owners. 2 Doug firs fell on neighbor Bev and neighbor Lenore from neighbor Tyson's yard. The 2 Doug firs uprooting/ falling may or may not have been the cause of the adjacent Lombardi poplar (Tyson's) and Doug fir ( Eric's) to be root-like. Cause is irrelevant. Lenore and been have had trees on their houses, insurance claims, and have rooted-pulled trees in neighbors yards aimed at their homes. Eric has shitty, giant all but dead 130'+ fir. It didn't have enough foliage to catch wind from the microburst. Lenore and Been want danger trees down. Short of that, they don't want to have another insurance claim due to negligent neighbors doing nothing for weeks (root-pulled) to years (dying fir). What should they do?

    Just put mine in the freezer to re-chill. When I'm that much cooler, the packs could weight twice as much and if be happy. Being overheated is about the equivalent of not working well in the winter because you're shivering, but not wearing a coat and hat. My winter clothes add more bulk, and about the same weight.

    I got my stumps as low as I wanted, yesterday. I bet they spend the money on grinding. Koi pond business in yard. Pics today. Koi, not stumps.

    Coolvest says core cooling is Critical. Neck cooling screws up some body temp regulatory system, as though your body says " huh, cool neck, must mean stuffs all good".

    Robert, best I can tell, 2 front and 2 rear packs. The zipper model is nice. The color and reflectivity is personal choice. I got 1 Hi viz and 2 later purchases are Hi viz reflective.

    You'll love it. I was not getting off to position the grapple by day 2. Might be more noise than you're used to. Hanging the BMG out as far as possible uncurled, with a horizontal boom, grapple closed makes it almost impossible to bang into itself... Unloaded, high speed travel position. You'll have the hang of it in no time! I was thinking today how much the BMG kicks ass, doing things non-dangle grapples wouldn't. Dave honed that design. I just use it.

    3 more days. Snow days to make up for. Never was in school on the solstice. Rarely was school cancelled for snow in Chicago. I had a lot of cold feet as a kid.

    Anything to say. Any of your recently acquired things? I'm trying not to fear more financing. A new chipper would be a good help. Feeding mine with the mini is not great, unless it's long maple... Then I smile. I actually did a fist pump today. More machine feeding, less me and employees breaking our backs. At the same time, I'm meaning to use a grapple truck more.

    My employee set up at the main job while I dropped D at school, braced a Maple to complete another job and got dollars. Met up at job site and banged out a bunch of dying Maple tops, leaving fell-able spars. Chipped most all of the brush. Mini was killing it on this job. Roadside fading Cedar to remove tomorrow. No drag for chipping!! Friend will come take wood with kboom. Homeowners have a koi/ pond business in backyard. Pics tomorrow. No $65k treehouse like last week but Not Bad. Maybe just bought a GRCS shipped for $2100 on TB. That should up my game.
