• Hey Guest,
    Just a heads up, The Tree House will be unavailable for about 10-15 minutes starting at 5pm CST tonight. This is just a super quick maintenance period.

    Thanks!
    Brandon

How'd it go today?

Not effin' likely. Even though I was born and raised there, I'll now leave that "paradise" to Brian, Gigi, and Brett. Florida is nothing like it was in the 50's, 60's, even 70's. It might be OK if you had no idea of what it had been. But I do know and miss the old Florida too much to enjoy it much now, at least as a place to live.

Long story short, yes I understand the old FL was truly a special place.

Exciting day today. Diesel rolled off its chocks and Down my driveway first thing this morning. Smashed the wifes rosemary. Big rocks stopped it though.
No harm to truck. Just sprigs of rosemary here and there in the under carraige.
Worked. Got paid. Getting ready to run to the valley for the lift for tomorrow. 1/2 way there. Truck on fire. Exhaust pipe came apart and started the wood bed on fire. Then the crates of oil. I got in the back and chucked the crates out into the road. Extiquished the wood with water I had on board. T owed it home. Lost some gear. Pair of climbing boots. All my throw lines. Some wedges. Odds and ends. Most the gear it never touched. I had fuel cans. Rigging and climbing gear. The winch. Saws. All saved.
Fire dept dumped a bunch of water on it to be sure.
Truck is ok. Im ok.
Should have it all fixed tomorrow. Just have order some stuff.
My buddy Frank says my truck is suicidal.

Laidout a house and some property corners. Boring day, but I saw a persimmon tree on the way back to the office, and it was *loaded* with fruit. Kinda late I think, but I bet they were amazing. They're best after the first frost, and have a touch of fermentation going on. I was gonna turn around and get some, but it was kinda in someone's front yard. I'm 99% sure it was a wild tree, and it was in the RoW, but I'd have felt weird picking fruit. They probably don't even want it. I can't imagine why they'd leave so many glorious fruits on the tree if they did.

Road trip with the baby crane today, 110 miles round trip. Clogged up the MassPike on the hills. :lol: Set an effluent tank filled with wood chips. Weird septic system near a lake. Had 24,779 at 45', load was 24,329. :/: Lots of wires, and a steep setup. I think we only had about 86' of boom out. Walking on the loose side on the driveway was like sliding on ice.

Dave, are you sure it was wood chips?! I have plastic chips in mine for aerobic bacteria to cling to. An air pump delivers the air. I’ve just never heard of using wood chips but I’m not a master septic installer either.
