    My thoughts exactly, but I didn't wanna say anything lest Paul get the big head and whatnot...

    OM. haha, I was waiting for that. and a "why did you climb in that tree?" but my answer at the ready was/is " practice" no time limit, perfect weather, why not put the saddle on and try something out? just went and tied in two lines to pull it away from falling on the shrubbery. again, for practice.

    but you guys all said low and slow yeah? So I listen.
    Its all good.
    Hey Darin, do you put a little lawn sign or anything down at jobs you are proud of doing? I havent had any made up yet (too busy, go figure) but I want to make a bunch of 1 by 1 foot coroplast signs with my logo and phone number to shove in the lawn at curbside. might make easy for neighbors to call up. Cant be that expensive I dont figure.

    Worked again at the arboretum yesterday, removing a small (40ft) banyan. It was a cool job because there was a 100ft + tree right above it. Climbed up and set a block and used the GRCS to 'pick' limbs off the banyan, pretty sweeeet! My left knee is killing me though, had to footlock up the big tree twice and woke up today and could barely stand on the knee.

    Gonna have to investigate new ways to get up the tree for longer ascents.

    SRT is the way to go for those long ascents Jon. Way easier and more efficient.

    Today I'm going to remove two 6' tall sick palm trees and grind the stumps.

    He'd probably give you an odd look.

    I think you're going to need some foam on that job.
