    Good catch Stig :LOL: Luckily the couple times I've gaffed out early in the piece I wasn't very high up, so I learned to adjust my positioning, and/or take a full wrap, or throw another lanyard up higher...keep spikes sharp. The worst is the person with their butt sticking out while arms are hugging :lol:

    I didn't know, that's still really young, i was thinking 18 or so.:? There was a time in life when you can look at someone and tell how old they are, at some point that ability disappears.... that's where I'm at.

    Doing the work I've done in my life, including all the horrible miserable stuff, is what made me what i am today, and because of that fact i wouldn't really change a thing. People often look back and say they wish they could have changed things, but they forget that they did those things for a reason in the first place, and those things made them what they are today. Just as storms and wind make a tree strong, our troubles in life and crappy jobs make us who we are. Absofuckinlutely, still, no harm in whatiffin’

    While I TOTALLY agree with the rest, I'd love to have you come fell a Beech tree, making the stump as low as we are required to, with your gigantic PNW dogs, Burnham. Can't be done. I bought a set of those dogs years ago, and found that out. They sat on the shelf for a few years, and every apprentice, I had, fell in love with them, because they just look sooooooooooooooo cool on a saw. They all gave up on then and eventually, I raffled them away here.

    I always said they don't pay us what they do because they like us :lol: Those dues are nothing but a drop in the bucket compared to the advantages. Yeah the steelworkers diversified back in the day when steel production started dropping, they cover most plant operators anymore from what I've seen. I enjoy my job, it does get tedious and monotonous from time to time, but the work is rewarding. I don't enjoy the travel, i basically am on the road all the time when I'm working pipeline, and lately even building trades now because of a slow local heavy construction economy. I enjoy pipeline work way more than building trades, and not just because of the money. Even though the wages are higher, they seem to not step on a dollar to pick up a dime so to speak, overtime is expected and if you are being productive you usually can just keep on working. They seem to get the tools you need without as much hassle, and the work itself is pretty cool without as much headaches. The ability to use my own welding rig and tools is awesome, because i have exactly what i like to use on the truck, and if i don't it's my own fault. I also enjoy the time off so i can be with the family 24/7, rather then an hour or so at night. I just wish i started this kind of work earlier, but looking back i probably wasn't ready maturity or skills wise. Doing the work I've done in my life, including all the horrible miserable stuff, is what made me what i am today, and because of that fact i wouldn't really change a thing. People often look back and say they wish they could have changed things, but they forget that they did those things for a reason in the first place, and those things made them what they are today.

    He was probably thinking 13 and lusting after her.:lol: Surprised me, too. Usually you don't see that muscle build up and control in someone so young. Respect!

    A sawbuck makes easy work out of that smaller stuff, many pieces at a time, upright, and away from dirt. You can find a good pallet-sawbuck video for an idea. Easy for the HO to tell the guy cutting the wood up.

    Seems like you two are smarter than the majority, out there on spurs. EDIT: That came off in a way that I wasn't intending. I totally agree, it ain't rocket science.

    I tend to agree...hugging the bole...slip. Lean back a bit more...no slip.

    Important note, the eye can be fooled. A single Turn and Half Hitch has only 1 radian Pi power arc of Nip and Brake forces and Round Turn has 3 such power arcs. On the graph above jumping backwards on the exponential growth rate shows single Turn left way behind; not in the running... This carries into all kinds of systems and knots. . . i think a base knot of 1 Turn just hangs on, But Round Turn(RT) different class if performed on the mount (also Crossed Turn base of Clove is Round Turn with more enforced friction) or on the Standing Part is great increase in knot forces. >>But not RT or Crossed Turn on host mount, followed by RT on Standing Part because the RT (or Crossing RT) on host consumes the 'power' needed to get strength return from RT on Standing. . The 3+ half circles this way, or upgrading Square Knot to Surgeon's (as linear 3 half circles are close to more perfect knot of long eye splice) i think is an extension of the above 3 half circle arc on bollard theory above; only 3 arcs now alternating/opposing/self balance used to apply to linear pull as some key to knot workings. . i think these things here are key to all knots and all other rope friction systems as well.
