    I'm glad that we aren't getting that snow. Ended up being a decent day of work, weather wise. worked on the ground during some rain, before fighting my way around a big, old apple. Worked at the next door neighbors'. Ended up with a rough looking pruning of a large apple that was let go 10+ years after major heading. Multi-stage restoration/ reduction...easier for regular pruning, and fruit production/ picking, along with being more storm-resilient. Bad apple canker should be helped with air and sun, I think. Lots of mulch generated for them to spread under the tree, which will hopefully help. A lot more light in their yard, which it really needed, as its the southern exposure in our sun-starved winter. Got some big bamboo out of the job, too. 20' or taller. A large Arbor Trolley load, rolled right from their driveway to mine. 2" in diameter on the larger stuff. Should be interesting to build something out of it. Dahlia suggested a treehouse. The irony is that this rental has one tiny tree on it. Got a new electronic control module installed after some more troubleshooting. Chip truck back in action... equipment is running at full strength. Now to find a second good groundie. Wraptor is at the shop...bad accelerator pump. Should be back soon, along with an MS 361 (first saw I ever bought) and an MS 460. I was itching to get this F450 and get rid of my 1/2 ton pick-up, but I might just outfit the two trucks. 1/2 ton is fully lettered, and pulls the stump grinder trailer or small trailer, plus its an automatic, and my parking is ridiculously tight for backing the chipper and trailers with a manual dually with poor visibility. It fuel efficient, too, relatively. Back-up can be a good thing, plus storm work might mean splitting up. Some of the driveways around here are much more manageable with a SRW automatic, too. Going on 10 years in legal business, come July. 10 years ago, I had that 361, $25 pole spurs, a rock climbing harness and two rock climbing ropes, gri-gri, screw lock biners, and a $75 used, little Mac for climbing. Astro van and 5 HP craftsman 3" chipper/ shredder.

    I banged over a handful of trees on Friday with my expensive husky splitting ax, with a plastic handle. I can still feel it. I normally use a wood handled 5# maul. I'll compare when I bang over more. Better yet, I'm going to let my employee bang then over for me. I'll pull the trigger.

    SeanKroll replied to a thread Who Vapes? in The Rec Room
    Different CBD strains (different chemical compositions) for different ailments... Multiple Sclerosis, chronic pain from injury, tension headache from stress. This is not medical... Like alcohol, the product is identified, however, the label also indicates the location where it can be sold, such as the Green Lady East store location, or Green Lady West location. CBD AND CBG are both the "medical" components that don't get you 'high'. The are Vapor Lounges around here. I don't know anyone who vapes, personally. Less tabacco use than average around here, I'd bet.

    Flash, that's high CBD cannabis, not get you 'high' high--THC. Everything is labeled to the .01% here. THC A, THC B, CBD. Could be 20.89% THC A, 3.09% THC B, 1.87 CBD Or 1.09, .087, 20.89 CBD. Those big clouds are not 'pot' clouds. A cloud like that off a pot vape pen would have you high as a giraffe's ass, and coughing your lungs out, possibly do hard you'd puke from the force of coughing.

    Desperation. At an isa conference a while back, the presenter said tree businesses were right behind restaurants as the best candidates for going out of business. Tradesmen don't always make the best CEOs of their companies.

    Managed to figure out that root crown excavations and girdling root pruning took longer than estimated. What's new? New guy started today. Short term. He got a positive email about a previously disclosed interest in getting on Yosemite Search and Rescue from the NPS HR Department while we were working today. He'll likely head that way in 2 months. I enjoyed hanging out with him. Pretty chill day of grinding the last stump and chiseling roots. I'm going to be having dinner cooked for me tonight from the looks of it.:thumbup:

    SeanKroll replied to a thread Trust in Climbing Forum
    That was a rock climbing mantra, Jerry. 15-20' falls are not uncommon in rock climbing (highly dynamic rope). 100' falls in extreme climbing can happen without issue, if "clean" (step to overhanging). Longest rope jump is around 1200'. The take-away is that when situational awareness, proper technique, and proper gear are used together, you're protected, not bulletproof, but things should work out okay.

    SeanKroll replied to a thread Trust in Climbing Forum
    In rock climbing a long time ago, a solid climber told me his mantra is "Climbing is fun. My gear is good. Falling is Safe." If anything doesn't match up to those three things, change something. Developing a similar mantra might build your confidence. And setting up a big swing and going to town. Congrats on the break through.

    Hourly rate, for sure. Your original post hinted a flat rate.

    SeanKroll replied to a thread This is the Akimbo in Gear Forum
    I suspect that sit-stand gives more of a sawing effect of the rope on the redirection crotch than rope-walking. More bounce. I'm excited for the Akimbo to come to market. Meanwhile, the tried and true HH keeps on tickin'.

    Congratulations, Nick! Perfect location, next to the dump that you're already using daily. Lots of room. You'll save money from efficiency, even if you pay money in rent.
