    Depends on the friends, depends on the family. Currently working every 2nd Saturday on a friends tree(s) till they are both down. Quite large canyon oaks. Just Rob, me and the HO. He is relatively disabled, so he is limited to what he can do and how much he can afford. He also does a lot for folks that have no one to turn to. Vietnam vet. We trade. He'll come out ahead. Wants to trade me his fishing boat. I don't want a hole in the water to pour money in. So we will be making other arrangements. Again. He'll come out ahead. Other friend insists on paying me, but I give him a family discount. Again, a guy that really takes care of some folks that cant do for themselves otherwise. Both these guys donate a lot of time to our local youth as well.. Family, they try to pay. If they succeed, I just spend it back on them :lol: Everybody is a little different. It's like, I really don't like that bro in law. But I love my sister. SO I gave him a consult for free to tell him what my expert opinion was on his ash tree in Colorado being devoured by beetles. His was about the last one standing in the neighborhood. He had it treated for a few years consecutively. My sister hated the tree. I showed him some defects and what a threat it would eventually be to the house and how it was crowding out his nicer tree (a bradford pear :lol:) that was quite healthy and vigorous. Not threatening the house. Showed him how to make collar cuts and "thin it" so that maybe the snow "might not" break it. Sister was happy. Tree gone. Bro offered me a C note. He was happy I refused. I am happy my sister is happy. My opinion of the dude has not changed, but he feels I like him well enough. That is good to keep my sister happy. Hey.... win win... :lol:

    Hey, Rich, thanks for chiming in with your long-term results on those beautiful splices! Pretty cool to be able to get feedback on something that was posted so long ago. I was wondering if you might be able to enlighten me with regard to why you think your gear lasts maybe twelve times longer than the stuff being used by other crews? Do you think it is because of the way you store it when not in use, or is it something else? Thanks a lot, in advance, for any thoughts you care to share on this subject. Tim

    Wow, Al, cool story! Glad there was no mishap. Thanks for your thoughts on the subject. It's nice to know that such a seemingly simple rope is so highly respected. I had no idea about that 70% elongation number. It makes me think that it could work well as a way to temporarily support a failing tree, since it might give and take with the wind. Thanks again for your post. Tim

    Mick, it appears you're highly contagious, and the disease can spread across the oceans.

    Hahaha... That's good. One of our divers works at the Tennessee Aquarium and would be the perfect guy to do that with his audience. I'll show that to him and see if he can make it happen.

    That's just funny! And I totally understand what YOU just said! Even if don't understand it sometimes, I do recognize wisdom when I see it.

    Butch, I thought you were about to make a follow-on joke that related to Gary's post...I thought you were going to tell us that the dog got infected.

  1. Yeah, thanks....we can all learn something if we are open to it. Brian has issues, I reckon...I'll just let him stew and work out his own way to be involved.

    I enjoy your posts...glad to have you at the House.

    Your post on Murphy's video's was spot on. If nothing else it makes for forum education and I for one will never shut the door on learning! Like to add you to my friends list hear also. Joel/rskybiz
