    Easier to get up on the weekend. Really really nice to get up on the weekend and not have to dash off into the weather. I love having terrible weather on the weekend. I feel like terrible weather has to come, let it come on days I don't have to be outside and it will get it out of its system and miss me.

    Astute, Interesting observation Jer. I love that time when you told me you were "made for it." You referencing my poem was music to my ears after looking up to you for so many years. Man I've had a rewarding life.

    I grew up before the issues of energy became what they are today. Gas was 25 cents a gal and diesel was 18 cents and it appeared that was the way it was going to be forever. Ha! Use as much as you want! It was cheap!

    I have smoked green buds in a vape but found it sends a tickle and a cough much deeper into my lungs than normal combusted buds, which we know are no bueno for the lungs. have you found that?. Not going to try liquified weed thats too weird.

    thats cool. it definitely seems like a highly highly addictive nicotine vehicle so keeping clear of that seems the way to go. The people who I know that cape definitely have nicotine in theirs and they are completely inseparable from them.

    It seems that people who vape, vape all the damn time. with no break ever. Like with cigarettes its a break here and there but not all the time walking in a cloud of sickly sweet smelling overpowering aromas of weird food steam. There also seems to be no sense of boundaries. People have been trained to light up their cigarettes at a safe distance from non smokers. Vapos seem to believe that everyone loves the way it smells. They do it everywhere! I love tabaco, cigarettes, chew, cigars, pipes. all in extreme moderation. It used to be much more but now its very rare that I partake. I still love the drug though. I just can not get on board with the vapos. I have one friend who after him and his wife started it, I just don't want to hang around them. Its like they have this apparatus hanging from their lips all friggin day without stop.

    I learned the taught-line hitch in 1969. Using manila rope. I'm here to tell it was the best damn thing going at the time. By the mid 70s synthetic rope (nylon) had essentially replace natural fiber rigging in the arborist trade. The Blake's hitch came in the early 90s and solved the problem of the climbing hitch creeping. What a godsend. In the mid 90s the French Prussik with the minding pulley improved climbline control dramatically better. By the year 2000 numerous mechanical devices were being developed, in the attempt, to surpass the current limits of climbline control through fiber on fiber. Up to my injury, and retirement, in 2007 I tried out practically every mechanical device there was, and in my opinion none of them could beat the control I could get through fiber on fiber. But that was 10 years ago. Since then a half dozen new mechanicals have made their debut, and I can not help but wonder if they are really as good as all the hype says they are. With the current development of SRT in working arborculture today it appears the mechanicals have reached a brand new pinnacle in line control. What's next?

  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
