    A month after hurricane Humberto and the trees and shrubs are all greening up again, other than piles of leaf litter on the roadsides and broken trees in gardens, you'd hardly know a cat 3 went through...almost done here in Bermyland then it's back to spring time in Tassie...

    Nice! I am very fortunate that word of mouth works for me for the most part. However I am going to contribute a couple of articles to our local community newspaper, as I live in a rural area that should drum up a bit of extra work.

    My main line is SRT as high as I can get it...then I use my super long lanyard DRT to help pull me out and drop me into the difficult spots. When you just can't wiggle out on your main (single or double) the long lanyard can help get you there and 'trangulate' for better positioning

    Hey, Butch, thanks for posting this climbing tip. I'm a little embarrassed to say I've never even tried to tie the monkey's fist knot yet. You are saying to tie it midline in the bight of the rope, correct? And then just get two equal halves of rope together and whip it around the back of a tree trunk or over a branch, correct? I'm not sure why it has never occurred to me to try the monkey's fist knot, other than I guess I just figured I could use a throw bag to do the same thing. But maybe the fist behaves a bit differently than a throw bag does. I tend to carry too much stuff with me when I climb, because I'm almost always by myself. Anyway, thanks again for the advice. I swear I will learn to tie the monkey's fist knot now, just because of your recommendation. Take care. Tim

    The reason I said, "Not a barberchair but kind of similar...." 1. leaning tree (can contribute to the cause of a BC) 2. tree went where he did not expect it to (BC pieces can go anywhere in the XYZ planes) 3. BC can certainly strike the faller. that was my reasoning. He got caught by events and forces he did not expect.

    Butch's favorite post... It was actually the first post I remember him ever using to comment on work I did years ago. I may be able to find those pictures that instigated those comments from him. It'll probably make him crazy...:D

    I suspect inverters that can be run from a car are probably becoming popular with some people.

    Got another climber to work with me on the storm damage cleanup, I've been a bucket baby for a week and a half...once the broken stuff was cleared he started on the reductions, in it makes my heart sing to see another arborist use a hand saw and secateurs in a tree!!! He totally gets how the trees need to be done on this property, we think the same way. Back to climbing tomorrow...
