    Found a pipe holding up a massive amount of pin oak today. It had cracks we could fit our hands in this morning, fresh heaving of the ground and sidewalk, and o lot of perfectly healthy foiliage and wood above 12 foot. Dealt with a bunch of “privledged” people that were upset it was coming down till they saw the last cut. I think I’m gonna haul it home and build a sweet bonfire for trick or treat next week. I’m planning on setting it upright, stabilizing with greener logs around it, filling it with dry wood, and cutting out some holes for flames and air. Should be one heck of an attraction. Prolly should let FD know ahead of time:D

    Yeah, I took alotta pride in my Presidential Physical Fitness Award patch, sewed it to my pop warner football jersey. I guess it morphed into something else after the Apollo generation. As I recall it took quite a few pull ups n push ups n muscle ups to win the award. Then came the space shuttle n star wars...... Jomo

    Humans are designed to be loaded on the core and to reach above & pull, tug, twist. I greatly encourage my children to use the monkey bars and overhead rings and pull up bars on the jungle gym. Pete Egoscue makes a big deal about how constrained into a limited box most motion is in modern society -- how to be fully functional in your joints and range of motion, you have to reach overhead and look up -- pick stuff up off a top shelf, bring it down to the floor, repeat. Ever hear of the book Dinosaur Training: Lost Secrets of Strength and Development ?

    I love the ideas offered. No one has seen this but you and you know best, but tossing ideas around is a great thing. I find ( and this is no way referring to Reg) that many times we grow accustomed to working a certain way and forget how many ways there are to skin a cat. Did this tonight when asked my opinion from pictures of a bid. I saw a way to go from a tiny drop zone to a big one using a different method than what the estimator is used to. Kinda screwed myself out of an easy crane job (needed 100 ton plus for the radius) but also puts the one day job less than a crane removal in close to the same time frame and beats out the competition by over a day. Anyhow, I love how ideas are shared here

    Or as August reveals the dark mystery in a recent video: you climb up (spikes & lanyard or otherwise) and set the block where you want it. <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/f3i57Bb2YW4" frameborder="0" allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen></iframe> To me, there's nothing particularly unsafe about the general method. I've been at a 2 story restaurant that featured a dumbwaiter to get the food to the 2nd floor. It rode on a track, with a counterweight that ran down the track on the opposite side of the shaft, geared pulley above and looped control rope to get it up & down. The car itself was oak and cedar, let alone fully loaded with food, probably weighed 200+ lbs. Same basic concept here, just no "rails" or tracks for the load and counterbalance -- thus the possibility of interference on the way up!

    Had a nice afternoon at the golf course. lifted 2 Spruce, 2 White Pine, 2 Maples, and an Elm for view, removed a little 4 stemmed birch, then took the tractor w/batwing to do the last mowing at the conservation club next door. Put a few things that might freeze into storage. More mowing to do tomorrow, and some brush pick-up

    Knowing how it can be hard to rip with a saw I wasn't sure: full comp for more teeth cutting, or skip for a deeper bite.

    There's a hilarious vid of an extremely agile and adept spider monkey antagonizing a pride of lions, trying to take a nap beneath the wrong monkey's tree. Swingin down on em n boppin them in the head, laughin at em, till he drove them all off. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=NRyGzlf6SpQ All we're really missin's the prehensile tail. I love the vid of the GoPro on a squirrel too. Jomo

    I think he was meaning a TP 275 Mobile wood chipper, not a saw. <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/UCjFrICOHKQ" frameborder="0" allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    It would be like coming full circle, evolve back into a monkey. I know right! That just blew your mind.

    Any possibility of using a floating block? If so maybe using the VSL as a highline and have the chunk on a lowering line to control the descent speed. Just a thought but then again you have seen the job in person and I am sure this is not your first rodeo.
