    Drop and flop oak - S. Georgia style

    Yup. Anything posted to the old gypoclimber.com website was never to be seen again after Butch abandoned it. Anything after that and before 2008 is gone, unless it got bumped forward, like this one, right about the time of the software change (that time around). So that's about 8 years of...

    Drop and flop oak - S. Georgia style

    Bump for one of the oldest threads in the current TreeHouse archives. A bunch of members no longer participating, including the OP. Which is too bad. But on the other hand, plenty are still posting, more than 15 years later. That says something good happens here.

    You surely are not the only one, Stig. If asked for a show of hands, mine would be among those raised.

    How'd it go today?

    I also was thinking about Jed a lot today. I spent the bulk of my day outside, burning lots of blown out branches from the big winds a couple of weeks ago. Watching the smoke curl away into the sky. Don't know why, but it made me hope he was as peaceful as I felt at that time and place. I'll...

    Pointers on Big Tree Felling

    To add to what was said in posts 2, 3, and 4...see post #1244 in this linked thread; for some reason the link seems to send you to the following post, #1245. https://www.masterblasterhome.com/threads/milling-thread.10040/page-50#post-963964

    I’m a sucker for a bargain

    You forgot to mention the crocodiles and the sharks, Fiona. :D

    What sad, sad news. Breaks my heart. What a loss, for us and for his family.

    I’m a sucker for a bargain

    I can see both sides of it. I personally would use "is" in the original sentence, but I don't think "are" would be really incorrect.

    Pointers on Big Tree Felling

    Took a while, but located this post of mine... A method for cutting faces in stems bigger than your bar length. https://www.masterblasterhome.com/threads/question-for-stig-short-bar-technique-for-open-face-or-conventional-notch.21269/#post-932450

    I second that Treemotion

    Still online website...rec saddles still on offer, but all working saddles sold out. This question came up in another thread, but without search I am lost :).

    What's the weather like in your neck of the woods?

    To truly repair damage from deep rutting is nearly impossible. Cosmetically, sure. But restore hydrologic function that interfaces properly with undamaged adjacent ground? Theoretically possible with a few soil types, but difficult to achieve.

    Wanting a new bar

    Thought I'd update my feedback on this Oregon chain. After some much more demanding cutting, I'm still not getting any excessive stretch. After that initial bit of use brand new, it's acting pretty normal on that score. Cuts well, smooth, sharpens easily. Holds an edge in 15 to 24 inch...

    What Did Ya'll Have For Dinner Tonight?

    Had friends over for drinks, dinner and conversation last night. Pork chops on the grill, risotto w/ mushrooms, and a colorful garden salad. We haven't been making risotto until the last year or so. M has it down, yummy!

    It's true, the NT leg pads were awfully good.

    How'd it go today?

    Certainly not for this old forester. I know well the mental gymnastics of that job. Did more than a bit of it myself, of course. An additional challenge presents itself when your task is the contract inspector, after the thinning is done. You have to figure out what species are lying on the...
