    My first thought when I saw the thread title was duct tape, a tarp, shovel, rubber gloves, bleach, lime... etc.

    A snack isn’t bad but I won’t eat an entire lunch on Spurs. If the strap makes you feel better then use it. Something like that can help one keep a clearer head when working. No fuck it cuts is kind of along the same lines

    Nah...when in doubt do it. Take the time to add a strap when that niggling voice makes you wonder if you need the strap...a few minutes. Don't add the strap and really needed it...that little voice becomes an eternal shout that says, "why didn't you pay attention???"

    If they could add friction to the string preferably using micro barbs or similar, that would help lock it in place as it could stick firmly to clothing and itself.

    I know, no stub left behind! PB and J and a cereal bar were not worth going down but worth taking the time to cut the stubs later. The strap was used on the last crotch that was questionable. More of a mental help than a need I reckon.

    You are so right to explain those stubs! Boss here (MB) has a rule.... "no stubs!!" That was probably his first comment to me years back when I posted a work picture..."no stubs". That was it...succinct, smart and it stuck. I do leave one sometimes to contain my top rope to descend...but those stubs invariably snag something later if I leave any. NO stubs! Good rule. Good work there, Patrick. Is that a long yellow strap (if so, what's it for?) or did the bark tear that far???? That's gotta be a strap in the last picture?

    Tree09 replied to a thread Martial Arts in The Rec Room
    I have started to think that body shape is very much influenced by the work one does. Most guys here are lean, but then again most guys here have been climbers or loggers for a good portion of their working careers. Climbing punishes large people, so you will be inclined to be very fit while not bulking up. Logging is almost the same, walking miles and miles keeping a quick pace will reward leanness, but the chainsaw work and hauling rigging will reward both leanness and muscle bulk. I know a man who is amazing at pipeline laboring. He's a big guy, 6'3 or so, with arms the size of my legs. He has a bit of a gut, because walking isn't needed that much honestly, and size is greatly rewarded in the working conditions that are experienced here. When i explain him to others, i say take the 5 best laborers you have ever met, glue them together, and that's this guy. He will work all day with hardly a break, in extreme heat or cold, rain, you name it. He works at a very fast pace, and is so strong he simply just overpowers stuff if he has to. He is paid very handsomely for his efforts, way over what scale would be even though he is a working supervisor. His gut does not interfere with his job, so it likely won't go away. I eat way more than he does, and have a bit of a gut myself, but there's no way i could even comes close to doing the amount of manual labor this dude does all day every day. He basically is the best laborer/ spread boss I've ever even heard about, and his body has developed as it has to handle this. Like a blacksmith from back in the day will likely eventually become a hulking brute, i have seen that ones job will determine their shape and size. I can tell how long someone had been in the trades by how they walk and move, and i can usually tell what their profession was. I know nothing of martial arts, but those guys didn't have to perform manual labor all their lives, so their fitness is determined by what they did in the weight room, which would appear to be not very much. But just because someone has a bit of a gut doesn't mean they are fat and lazy. I will admit their nutrition is likely off tho, as I've noticed on myself living on the road like i have.

    Long day spent on this EAB victim. Signs of blonding earlier this year motivated the owner to get it removed. I had a nice lunch break on the stubs, they provided much needed relief from the spurs.

    In one clip it looked to have a two pronged "U" termination that probably hooked into clothing...done on bare skin it might puncture a bit..less than a bullet, though. OK...you got me curious...I just found their spec sheet...it shows what I thought I saw:

    Tree guys are all about control...we use ropes and gear to create situations where we can minimize danger as we control dangerous limbs and loads. We usually have the luxury of time to study, rig and control danger. Our use of rope becomes 2nd nature. Law enforcement folks deal with danger often, too...but they usually have only options of (empty) hands on a perpetrator or a firearm to control a bad situation...and time to make decisions is short compared to us. I have long wondered why law enforcement does not use rope (2 men, one 20-30 foot rope) to subdue bad guys (or mental patients) armed with knives or sticks...but it would probably take too much training to make it efficient. This new tool for LEO's is awesome...based upon the bolo. A long overdue tool that spans the gap from lethal to non-lethal reaction. <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/5SywpLbxAYs" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe>
