    As an objective, the Zone System printing guys always shot for visible detail in both the highlight areas of a photograph, as well as the shadow areas of a photograph. Ansel Adams was the inventor of the Zone System, I believe. Thanks. Here's a link to a Wiki page about it. Of course, in the first paragraph Ansel denies having invented the idea, claiming only to have codified existing knowledge, along with his work mate, Fred Archer. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zone_System

    Nice work, Daniel. Thanks for posting the great photos. Very clear, well-shot images. I have lately been wondering about the logistics of owning big equipment like most professional arborists do. Do you have to pay for a separate storage facility just to hold all of the equipment needed to do the work? Do you feel that the storage facility is secure enough? I hate reading about it when guys get hit by dirt bags that have followed them to see where they keep all of their equipment, and then come back later and clean the place out. It is a real punch in the gut. Thanks for sharing any thoughts you have on these issues. Tim

    Hey, Sean! When I just went to TreeStuff at about 3:20pm Tuesday 8-28-2018, the square advertising the greenteeth said the coupon code was "BESTTEETH" with three "T's" and no quotation marks. I hope this helps. Tim

    Hey folks! Just thought I'd mention a possibly important deal for the right person. TreeStuff is having a 20% off promotion on ISC products by using the coupon code BESTISC during the checkout process. A couple of minor problems I have with the way this promotion is happening is that TreeStuff does not mention anywhere that I can see when this promotion ceases to be. The way I became aware of the promotion is that on their main page, near the top, was a square that advertised the discount. A problem for me has been that that square has been alternately appearing and disappearing from the main page on successive visits. So, if I were you, and there is anything on the ISC product page that interests you, just put it in the cart and try to check out using the coupon code mentioned above. If you don't get the discount, just cancel the order. I'll try to leave a link to the ISC product page below. https://www.treestuff.com/store/products.asp?manufacturer_id=45 Thanks for listening, and hopefully this can save someone some money. Tim

    The main thing, I would think, is to make sure your body is out of the line of fire if any component of the system were to break. Other than that, I think your setup is worth a try. I'm an amateur, though, full disclosure. Tim

    If it makes you feel any better, Butch, I took your advice on this issue. I also passed it along to another person suffering from muscle cramping at night, and it helped them, too. It's a night and day difference in my life, with regard to suffering muscle cramps. Tim

    I'm not sure, but that might also be referred to as an "O-Rig" system.

    Dan, thanks a lot for being willing to tell the tale. It helps us all to try to learn what causes the mishaps, so that we can see the signs and prevent it from happening again. I'd like to think that you could generate your own work in the future, and be the guy who gets to keep the lion's share of the profits from the job. The situation with the sales guy earning so much more than you just seems so unfair, since it is you who risks life and limb every day. Ask questions of guys like Mick and Cory and Squirrel and Peter about how to start to become your own boss. Just my thoughts on this. Tim

    Tim_B. replied to a thread Motivation in Business Management
    Hey, Dan! Sorry to hear about your friend getting hurt. It might be asking too much, but I always have an interest in hearing about how these incidents happen. It can help others avoid accidents in the future. It's ok if you don't want to get into all of that, though. I'll understand. I'm not a pro like you, but I can relate to the circumstance of having your control over a work site slowly taken away from you by someone who constantly resists doing things in the way the climber thinks they should be done. I got lucky once that my ground man and property owner never got hurt by what resulted when he refused to listen to my opinion on how we should proceed. I determined after that day and that incident that I would never again allow myself to be overruled with regard to operations. I decided that a single question needs to be answered in that circumstance. The question is: "Who is in charge here?" If the person being asked the question answers back that it is someone other than the climber, the climber should say, "Wrong answer." And then proceed to come down from the tree, and start packing up his gear. That is where I stand on this issue, now. Thanks in advance for any comments you care to make. Tim

    I have purchased and used the premix cans of fuel, in order to avoid putting ethanol into my chainsaw's fuel system, as well as a blower I have access to. I've read that ethanol is really corrosive, and dissolves the plastic parts of fuel systems. I don't run a saw very often, so do not mind paying the premium. Also, there are parts of the country where it seems like they try to make it very hard to even find fuel from a gas pump that does not contain ethanol. The northern Virginia/Washington DC metro area is like that. I have not tried to find a marina that sells pure fuel yet, but if I all of a sudden needed to run small engines a lot, I would try to go that route. I think boats need the pure fuel to work right or something, which is why I'm guessing that the ethanol free fuel is available in those places. I love how the stuff I've run using the canned fuel seem to run. Start right up, and run well, no issues. Tim

    "The bark, leaves and flowers of this species are poisonous to humans and livestock, and it is also known to cause contact dermatitis in humans." That is a quote from the previously linked article. It makes me wonder if shredding it up and putting small pieces of it into the air could cause a problem for the person doing the chipping.
