    We refer to "drag up" as an opportunity for union tradesmen that are getting layed off to gather tools, shake hands etc. It's giving them a freebie on the last hour of their last shift. Some guys that are butt-hurt from getting layed off choose to waive their "drag up" and leave site early and lose the hour wage. Funny how the lazy guys are still pissy and dumbfounded when they're the first cut. Sometimes working harder is working smarter.

    $35 to get our cat out of the pound yesterday. 3rd time we've had to bail one out in the eight we've had over the years but never the same one twice. Strange how some people just hate cats. I love dogs as well but I figured if I wanted a needy pet I may as well have kids.

    Ryan replied to a thread Husqvarna 365 Screw in The Trading Post
    I've searched the part number and I can't find anyone selling one in Canada online. I can start emailing and phoning Canadian dealers, getting several people chasing a single screw or I can ask if any fellow hosers have one they can throw in an envelope and send to me me at little to no cost. Now I have a copied list of machines that use the screw, with some of them highlighted with a "cool" emoticon, apparently meaning someone likes these particular models. Lucky me.

    Top left is where I lost it and moved bottom right up to "limp" with it. They all appear to be the same screw.

    Any Canadians have one of these you can send me? I can pay you or send a small token of appreciation back to return the nice gesture. My local dealer helped me out with the bushing (that I also lost) that is behind the chainbrake handle and flywheel cover but his parts list didn't show the screw so that was all he could do for me(?)

    I'm sure whatever the waiting period is, it's too long. A lady from my childhood kept a cancer diagnosis from her family for ten years before it caught up to her. Obviously that won't work for every type of cancer but I thought it was a brave way to go about it.

    When you drive west 12 hours across the prairies(torture) and finally see the mountains on the horizon the excitement just builds. Get into the mountains and the contrast in scenery is mindblowing. I barely got into B.C. and I already knew it was my favorite place on earth. I've heard the east coast is nice but I'll be heading west again the next chance I get. I want to own property in the Rocky Mountains. Even if it was a p.o.s. trailer in some resort town I'd be fine.

    I always end up spilling gas or oil. Best not to do it in someone's yard. The tools come closer to the work in a tote with my climbing gear. If they're not contained they disappear.

    To be honest I haven't touched my acoustics in months. I'd consider the rtoms if they had two 14's. I'm still hammering my e drums which keeps me going. Make sure you give us a review when they come.

    I find fasting as foreign a concept as some people might consider lifting weights 3 times a week would be. I'm interested in strength and fitness as opposed to trimming fat off of a soft frame. Different strokes I guess. Health and happiness is the goal no matter how you get there.

    I'd want something like a coiled rope with a bight passed thru, with the bight hooked on a cari tool with it's keeper removed if you can picture that. In a bail out situation it would be nice to drop the coil with one hand but that ease would make it impractical for anything that would snag it.

    Choking the stem with your climb line is a handy way to descend when you bury the tail of your ddrt system with spruce branches. Not that I've done that before.

    Another nice one Reg. As the zipped load reached the rigging tree, the groundman pulled to bring the load farther down the line (I think). Was it just his bodyweight or was there a 2 to 1 or something similar? Also, did you chunk the spar or flop it? I assume you didn't want to drop chunks onto a speedline rigged to a dead tree. And finally, how many gopros do you have and have you wrecked any?

    Ryan replied to a thread Yellow jacket refuge :) in Odds and Ends
    I had a nest in the crack where the front steps meet the sidewalk. I packed mud/dirt in there for a couple days but the industrious little bastards kept digging it out. I had read about the soapy water here but hesitated. Finally, I filled a mop pail with hot, soapy water and it worked like a charm. A few stragglers that weren't there for the bath hung around for a day or two but that was it. An old guy told me he used a shopvac filled with soapy water for a ground nest. Stuck it in the hole and left it for hours and says there were "thousands" when he dumped it.
