    Don't go diving in ponds to get them. I read of a rescue diver (Public Safety like I do) that went diving in a golf course pond to retrieve balls. He came down with a hard to diagnose medical condition that killed him within a few days. It was from the accumulated pesticides in the water from the golf course maintenance program. He was dead in a hurry.

    Storm pic... I hired another climber, he was in one tree I was in the other, we have to cut out all the salt and wind burned tips from the casuarinas....head them back to the first live twigs or to nodes if the branches were really mullered... This is at a high end property, dead tree tips are not allowed!

    Yeah...apparently that is next level stuff...but I might invest, I have a friend who works for the network:/: I mentioned before how getting the power turned off involves lots of money and an electrician to be there for turning off and on...lotta red tape.

    It was great, both homeowners watching, put it right where it needed to go. The front and back limbs went first, then that top section down to the join, then a hunka lumpa of the trunk...done by dark.

    So Deva...I recently did a similar course in Tassie...I asked whether I could cut trees that were juuuust resting on the plastic coated (cause it's not really insulation) service drop (220v)...answer...no. That sucks because of course people wait till trees are IN the wires before they call! Neither can I cut branches above low or high voltage wires... I can cut trees that are 500mm away from low voltage but I and my tools have to remain 1.2m away... And I can cut trees that are 1.2m from high voltage but I and my tools must be 3m away Also I have to have an accredited spotter present who does nothing but watched me work... How does that compare to what you just learned?

    I too like the stein telescopic hook, but I've managed to destroy two of them, pulled them apart where the sections join. Very, very handy to have that wee bit extra reach.

    Mountain lion roaring? When I was probably 8 years old I would stay with my cousin in S. GA....near the Florida line, in Adel, GA. There was a swamp in the deep woods behind his house on their farm...I knew it was there but never went to it. We could hear swamp panthers that sounded like that on some nights. I remember they sounded like a woman screaming. Cool to hear that again!!!

    If I had enough light left this evening I would have taken a picture of my avocado stump up at about 10'...it was 'Jed-esque'...haha, thin level and parallel...turned the 6' lump just right to miss the edge of the patio...channelling all my treehouse mentors!

    A month on from hurricane Humberto things are beginning to resprout and leaf out...I have almost finished the restoration pruning for my client, the big baygrape has been balanced and thinned, ficus cut back hard, coconuts cleaned up, white cedars reduced, dead tops of fiddlewoods cut out... Took down a tall avocado this evening, looming towards a friend's roof, I pruned it about three years ago and it grew about 10' in some sections..even the new sprouts since the storm were already almost 10" in some spots! Went there after the main job, finished it just on dark... There is still lots of small debris around and lots of broken trees in gardens, but generally the island is looking neat and tidy again, give it another month and you'd hardly know unless you have 'the tree eye' I'm tired now though a month of six day weeks in the heat and humidity...enough already!

    I saw something similar to Kyle at my gym a few years back. I would take my own 3 strand manila rope and hang it from the ceiling trusses...the owner let me set up a padded V crotch and I would toss the end thru the V and anchor it to a piece of equipment. It was a "non-chain" gym...neighborhood, not a Gold's. Lots of guys commented about what great training it was but almost none of them ever tried the rope. The one guy I remember trying was a beautifully sculpted body builder...looked like Adonis....like this: He grabbed the rope and pulled up..couldn't even get his feet off the ground. He couldn't believe it. His grip strength was very poor, could not handle his body weight. He took it well but I could tell it really shook him. Here is what some of my ropework was then. <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/_-DcAz8h11I" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe>
