    That's the heart of my turf. I've had a Wayne PO Box since 1986. Let me know if the 75 elevator bucket truck would be helpful.

    I stay local, haul local and dump local. They are already EVERYWHERE I go. You are supposed to take a free online course from Penn State. I think some eggs are already laid for this year, though I haven't seen any masses, I haven't been looking. This is BAD. Where's the job? https://extension.psu.edu/spotted-lanternfly-permit-training

    I cut the stump down a few feet on this one just on the off chance that the next tree hit the stump it wouldn't lift the but. <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/NZBHRfjYU5I?start=170" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    Ft. Bragg was spared. Big ruckus over the whole deal. Lots of folks upset, and it's not over with yet.

    Oh, preserving the knowledge and lore of hand falling method in the face of increasingly popular and more economic mechanical methods. Not easy today. The terrain is the all limiting factor separating the two, and the hand faller is being chased by the machines ever further into steeper and more difficult ground to work. You got to be smart as Superman, and near as strong, to stay alive.

    This is the top that spun 189 degrees on the way down. While I love Gerry's teaching on wind resistance and think that would be a good subject for videos, if you are trying to spin a top, wind is more something to overcome that use to your advantage. I've given a lot of thought to this spin of this top and tried to put all the factors together. Early separation is a must. VERY narrow face, and then as Sean mentioned a torque from the pull line and a hinge set up to hold on one side. Not sure which plays more of a factor (which is a very important distinction), the hinge or the pull, but it makes sense that you need to have a pull that continues after the piece starts to move. Usually, the pull line cannot keep up with the speed of a moving top. So you'd need a line that's set fairly low (COG or below) and a moving truck to get much torque. I AM guessing the timber fallers will adjust their cuts to allow a tree to spin after it brushes another tree. Probably more just by using a narrow Humboldt than having the notch hold on one side. <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/7Y5_bGt-sL4?start=673" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe> SO many factors to dial in. It seems more of an academic inquiry, than something that has much practical use in the field. But still this is the stuff I think about in bed. 13:21 the notch is pointing straight up Just took another look.. the hinge was tapered. 3.5" on the wide side... 2" on the thin side, so that makes sense.

    watching those feet touch down and knowing what a relief it is reminds me a bit of the old days after climbing a big nasty tree...

About August Hunicke
Biography:
Born (1968) and raised in the Alaskan bush. No power, no running water my entire childhood. We lived almost entirely off the land, eating salmon and moose meat primarily. Bought rice, beans, and wheat in large sacks periodically. My father was originally from Southern California but after Vietnam wasn't welcomed home. He made his own home with my beautiful mother in Hatcher Pass Alaska, far from stores and cars and highways. He built the log cabin I was born in. He delivered me and my brothers and sisters there and raised us up working hard. He read us the bible and taught us about God. I'm not ashamed of it nor do I think I have to plead with anyone to "get saved." Growing up, I was embarrassed at times by where we lived and thought we were poor because we didn't have light switches and drive a k car. Now I know we were rich. Rich in substance and heart and capability. I thought I was lazy as a child because I didn't look forward to all the hard work. I found out later when I entered the work force in the tree and also commercial fishing industries that I was not lazy but in fact stood out as a hard worker. I live in Oregon now, 2 miles from my now civilized parents (light switches and all) because they moved here. I have a beautiful wife and little ones. I want them to be close to my parents. Home is wherever my parents go and I intend to carry on the legacy of love of my father until I die in all my relationships, including here at the Tree House.
