    Default What Happened To Mike Majors?

    Do any of you guys remember the CA big woods climber and rigger Mike Majors? He did a big Redwood removal years ago with Don Blair, Ken Johnson and some others utilizing 2 Hobbs lowering devices and it was featured in TCI Mag?

    I'm trying to track Mike down and ask him a few questions, but can't find him.

    Never heard of the brother, but that's cool. I 'spect he's never heard of me, either.

    Mike, I thought I remembered, but then the Mike I was thinking of was Mike Maas. Went through a rough time, I Hope he's doing well.

    Don shut down the San Mateo store (sent out a notification etc.). He is available at his home base for certain things. I would think that Arb History and talking about the greats would be one of them.

    PM me if you want the last #or email I had for him. Goggle probably works too.

    Fast forward to 1:50 of this video and see Mike Majors ziplining some really big pieces.

    That was cool! 108k views??!? That's a lot of views for a tree vid.

    You should get Blair to join the TH!
