    Excellent capture Reg 👍👊

    What size lines did you use to secure the log?

    Good stuff. I remember you posting some pics of that before. Well at least I think so. Anyway, good way to think about customers, yourself, and your company.

    Even though your a very confident man, you got to admit that dropping that spar was a "puckering" experience.

    Well done Reg. Some good work done on that project. I would have been holding my breath watching if both lines held. Of course the crew would have thought I was cool as ice...
    Interesting how a limited gene pool and a limited labor force seem to be so closely related.

    That was awesome, RC. I was hoping for a vid from you any day now.

    The very beginning was artful.

    So you chipped everything and, what, log truck for the wood?

    The vid production ( if that's what's it called) was great, narration on top of stills and vid.

    Great to hear your thoughts on a job that runs over the time estimated.

    So I'm not completely clear on how you kept the lines evenly tight given their different elevations on the trunk. How'd you guard against 'zippering'- one taking all the weight and breaking, thus transferring all the weight to the next one, etc. Also, I would think it would be tricky with all the surrounding timber to have adequate space for the lines to move with the falling tree without getting hung up prematurely.

    Were they clearing to build something, or just hacking back the encroaching jungle?

    Than you sir.
