    Well, been a busy one here. Finally buttoned up the 4x4 that started leaking tranny fluid. Cooler line broke and I broke the cooler trying to put in a new line. Ordered a new betterer cooler and made the brackets to locate it more sensibly on the passangers side with a gap between it and the condenser. Last owner strapped it to the condenser and the hose clamps rubbed it bad. Finally got the pressure pump I ordered installed this last week. Sponge baths for a week when that broke. No water pressure in the house from the tank. Not reccommended.. Just a trickle from gravity. Robs truck broke something, digging in on that. Finally got the right o rings for the John Deere trans filter. Damn that sux to get in right. Freezer helped, but I bought like ten of the buggers as I destroyed 3 before that. Now I have to order upgrade brakes for the 4x4. It just ate another set of rotors. Da.nDa.n all the weight we shuffle on the hills we do. Love trying to stop a 7500# plus chipper with a moth 1k in the bed on an 8% grades coming into town behind tourist traffic.

    Not really... I sorta thought I was helping. Now I think they throw any crazy ole shit at me and see if it sticks. I say put me on the mainstream stuff... see what happens. I'm still doing the deworming thing...

    Just a heads-up... don't opt for any experimental chemo treatments. Stick to the regular concoctions. I agreed to the prior, but I've since told them to belay that stuff.

    Only a couple times. Mine got smashed in the back of the truck not long after I bought them. People that don't pay for stuff sure GAS about it.

    Once the kids grow up, we'll have more, and the property will be paid for. Then I can slow down and do more cash.

    Spider lift with about a 90 foot reach would be great, a 75 would also work. Just hard to pay for. The one guy with a bucket truck up here, chose to refinance his house to buy it, giving him more time and a better rate to pay it off with. It hardly pays for itself. Just allows him work to keep bills paid so to speak. Limited by access and terrain. Trouble is being able to charge enough. Fixed income is the majority up here. Then a small group of government and utility workers, then large group of low income. When we bid at 250.00 hr for a crew and kit, we are hard pressed to get work. When I had a larger crew. He has to do that daily. Always worrying about work and will constantly low bid stuff when he goes hungry to get work. We flex our bidding according to what comes to the job and get more work, but don't suffer the low bidding issue. Granted, my stuff is paid for and paid for itself when demand was high. Demand is lower now. When I break it all down, I can't afford another mortgage payment. Nor am I able to charge for one.

    Does not take long to get out of shape with what we do. Excellent catch on the beech. We have that happen a lot with our hazard trees here near the ROW. Had one that was marked that they lost record of, right next to the house. HO called them over and over. Then called us scared watching the death wobble in the wind. Thank the gods there was another tree 15 feet away to tie into.
