    No, not really. Friend of my ex had one to remove from their backyard. 4-5' dbh. bad dropzone. I declined to bid on removing it. Needed more hands on deck. Would have been interesting. Largely a crane-out or massive rig-down. LZ was small, in neighbor's newly done-up yard. I don't recall exactly, but think it was around a 10k job done by a local, quality service.

    I don't think anyone is beating him up. Truth hurts, maybe. I only have observed fact-based observations about him/ his work from people.

    Low fat was a crappy fad from the 80's. Doesn't seem that low-fat and weight loss go together. Seems they took out the fat, and people ballooned.

    I've thought about Ring. Haven't looked into it. Fake cameras with LEDs might be worth something, over nothing. Stig, do you chip that often, or is it just maintenance for the lubrication and electrical?

    I don't think that safety consciousness is developed enough. Doing dangerous stuff, left, right and center, and not really avoiding simple stuff, like moving the trampoline that he hit and said 'oops'. Its a trampoline. I could move it one one hand. The butt log that stalled could have popped off to either side, crushing either thing. Rigging logs rather than take down an easy fence??? Ran his rigging line over his climbing line without knowing it. Could have burned partially through and broken when fully loaded. Too much, Too soon. What is with the black paint on the Stihl? Who do I know with huge amounts of experience, including lots of injuries in the past, who does that? Risking life and limb to sell some logs on a 'side job'? Did his groundie have the skill for that job? I barely trust newbie groundies to rig anything at all. Never do I trust my life to them with a huge log waaaaay too close to the obstacles. What was supposed to happen? Not heeding heat and dehydration, nor covering up in the hot sun... I hope he heals up completely, and doesn't become a fatality. Maybe I said this earlier in this thread, but I think I erased the post when writing...I tell people that full-on tree tree isn't for almost Everyone in the entire world.

    I bought some glasses on Craigslist, as the retailers and free programs were out of stock. Turned out to be Dahlia's classmate's dad selling extras, as they bought bulk for a summer camp program. Needing to figure out where to go in relation to the "marine layer" (clouds roll in off the ocean often in the summer, buffering the temperature for a while in the mornings, then it seems to 'burn off' in 10 minutes, suddenly.

    Changable, combo locks (Master multi-packs) with chains to slow down thieves, here. Run chains through power equipment inside the truck. Weld chains into tool boxes. A battery powered angle grinder will cut through about anything, given the time and noise. Slow them down, prevent smash and grab. Park against another truck/ wall meaning that they will have to move the truck to get access. I'm going to add a top door on my chip truck bed that is hinging and lockable. Why not make that huge area lockable?????

    People with lots of disposable income, and interest in the job done right, not right now. Olympia has the full economic spectrum, with lots of saltwater shore lines. I prefer saltwater air to city lots. I like people close to home, too. Call me snobby. I see it as efficient to do all the work at once, and then see them in a few years. Let your truck be seen in your target markets' neighborhoods. Park in the fancy grocery stores for an hour or two. Tell people you really appreciate word of mouth referrals. Let's you focus on doing quality work, not chasing down work. Doing quality work on the customer's timeframe and constraints will have work chasing you in a couple years. Take the time to talk to your customers, whether at the bid or after you have check in hand.

    Do you use a 'tensionless hitch'? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tensionless_hitch I wouldn't use a carabiner, for a pull tree.

    I was guessing from the initial overlap until the end of the overlap of the moon and sun. Dunno.
