    I have two 21 year olds. Occasionally I bring in a friend also. These two are green as my other 2 were giving trouble and had to be severed. I do not like talking to much at work. These wet behind the ears are so slow. I am plodding along. Surviving.

    Stephen there is no way I want to compete with guys around here. My skillset is higher. I do clean efficient drama free work. That being said I do not cut corners. Safety is my top priority. Others can lowball and cut corners. I give a quote and walk or say I am not interested. My ground staff currently suck. So no patience taking on big jobs. I work smart and am looking for high end prunes and easy removals. You are wise letting those jobs slide by. Spend more time with your lovely family. Less stress equals a happier life.

    Some storm work from Yesterday. Steep wet grassy slope in a creek draw. We have been clearing this draw out for a couple years now since the fire went through it. Almost took the guys house. This tree was green but the roots were done. Last part of the video you will see 1/2 the root crown and stumps going down the hill on a 2:1. I have been using that pine stump for the portable winch redirect for over a year. I just left the stump there knowing full well I would need it again. Exploiting the only flat spot close to the creek we can get the mini to. Fodder. <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/wBfLmnYpSCw" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    Find myself evaluating the jobs ill take on. Especially since my crane guy passed on. Looked at a 6k crane job and walked. Told them, you can't afford me. Just did not feel up to the task. The crew has been borderline co-operative and efficienct. I did not want to add a new unknown from an outside crane source. My energy and patience are on the edge. The young guys can have the big job fun. That 45 trees in 1 acre I did was about the last I'll see of those. Crazy days.

    I never have filed the chain much on the 150.. Damn thing usually gets buggered when the bar tip gives out and I just buy the set. I have the files though. Touch up...get to work. The 2511 is my go to these days though.

    Ahhh. I may use 2-3 Loops a year on the small saws. So it just doesn't warrant me buying a spool.

    I will be 52 in may. Still climb 4 to 5 days a week. I enjoy it and use 98% SRT. I just keep things efficient and smooth. I decided lately no more big removals if rigging is involved unless a crane can set up. Just not worth the wear and tear. Let someone else have that fun.

    I put the Sthil chain on it that I run on the 200t. Worked great. Much better than the Oregon it came with. FWIW,it was one link diffy on the spinning one from the Oregon.

    If we could work the jobs on the books, we would be in the money. Booked through May currently with a 6 week back log in the wings. Two years of fires and a couple of exceptionally wet years is keeping the credit maxed out. Hateful.

    We'll, yesterday I was reminded why I hate chipping in sleet and rain. Stringy material, blades were due for changing, wet dead material. Clogged chute. Just trying to do the friend a favor when the weather cut loose. Probably the most miserable 1 hour chip job ever :lol:
