    I embrace its premise. Some of the words, terms and phrases are dated, and reflect that of the time. Don Blairs' father had a lot of passion, and was a true credit to the standards of quality we embrace in this profession today. I admire it all. Thank you for the fine post, Frans Smith.

    Thank Justin. I hope you come through up there unscathed. I told my parents they should check in with their friends up in Merritt.

    He just made it sound like every brown person hates him because he is white. Why do they hate him but not me? Im as white as they get, yet very few people hate me for my skin color. Why is his experience so different from the rest of ours is what Im trying to figure out.

    So, evac lifted after mid day. Went and got feed for all the critters. They had a supply station in town. They have an overage from all the rescues going home. Power came right on after we supplied up. So we have full water tanks again. The Sheriffs were taken back that we stayed, wondered why we did not call for feed and water. I just said, hey, you guys were busy and we had enough to get through till today or tomorrow. Why tax what limited resources we had further? I think they respected that. Picked up the kids and stopped for a bite. Sat with a few fire crews and thanked them for the valiant work. Still a lot of hot spots. Flare ups. Soooooooo with more winds coming and higher temps, we stand at the ready in case. Client scheduled for tomorrow mails me after he just got home from evac (literally lives around the hill from us so we both got evac lifted today). All set to work tomorrow... bla bla bla.... we will start over here and do that over there. I was reasonably stern and polite in my reply that he could probably get stuffed. I only have the rental truck to move kit anyway. I have to make at least two trips just to get started. Not to mention refrigerators to clean out and every fucking thing else going on. Call rental company to extend my rental as everything that was to be moved and or worked on, parts ordered, went to hell in a hand bag on evac orders and vacating a town. What a tool. I love collecting his check after a weeks worth of work every month. So I'll be nice, remind him who is in control of the ship. Get some work done maybe starting tues and possibly get Friday off as well.

    hates a pretty strong word.. I have rarely ever experienced hate in my life based on my skin color. lots of distrust, wariness, skepticism but hate? I don't expect anyone to like me anyway without getting to know me so none of that bothers me in the slightest. Im not buying that Brian has that many enemies based on his skin color. I do believe that there are people that hate for a lot of varieties of reasons that is sort of a general percentage of the population sort of thing. Those would be Haters and they come in all shapes sizes and colors.

    Fi, that is what is basically happening here. Fire was trying to take whole small towns. Huge amounts of resources moved in finally. Mean while, our CA politicians keep cutting fire budgets:X Here is the dozer line they are cutting for a fire break behind my area and why we are still on evac., several doers wide. That is down in the last area burned. All chemise and manzanita. Hot, fast burning fuel. They are going to try and wrap that up today and repopulate our area.

    Need a break. Little flare ups are persistant. Pisses ya off. You see other evacs lifted and here ya sit Watching the helicopters And crews go by. Map shows the hot spots further out, but the crews are still mopping up, dealing with flare ups and cutting more fire line behind me. So still no power, and restricted movement. Most tree guys I know don't handle not working so well, I am probably no exception. Right guys on the road block, I can get out and in. We have a lot from out of the area right now. Soooooo not really wanting to get trapped out. Still have plenty of water and fuel, but animal feed is getting low. See what tomorrow brings.

  9. Hey Gerry- 2 quick questions for you...

    1- I'm on the verge of buying a video camera to make hd quality splicing vids (some to sell, some to youtube). I'm looking at the canon HG-10. any thoughts? What's the secret to getting HD vids up on youtube?

    2- I'm getting inquiries from people wanting to climb the redwoods. I think you saw a thread from a trip where i took some people up...but these are up in the state parks where, as you know, climbing is prohibited, Any suggestions for some private land where the owner would let me earn money on their property? I'd be glad to pay, of course...

    Hope all is well...

    love
    nick
  10. Aloha Jerry!

    I wanted to write and thank you again for setting the whole rec climb up. I'm really looking forward to meeting you.

    I know you closed the number of people several weeks ago so I feel bad for asking - a very close friend who lives in Portland is thinking about driving down to see me while I'm in humboldt and I told her I would have to check with you first to make sure it is okay. I am camping nearby but I would want to hang out with her so I was writing to ask permission if she could tag along with us.

    If that doesn't work, no problems at all Jerry. See you soon~!

    ~~~ Jon
