    Well I can't exactly repeat the drop...might well revisit, even leave a note at the door. Trust me a flashlight won't help, that ivy is like two feet thick in places...and eight feet high

    Angle of light in the situation can make a difference...go at a different time of day...use a flashlight, probably in shadows.

    Shit. I must not have clipped the module onto my helmet properly I was dangling over a roof, heard a bang...then next time I tried to talk to my groundie, nothing. So I realized the bang was the module falling onto the roof...it must have bounced and gone plop right into the deepest darkest portion of a thick ivy hedge on the wall next to the house. We looked in the gutters, in the alley, we raked we shook...that module is stuck inside somewhere way deep. So, do I have to buy a whole new unit? :(

    Hey, treebilly! Please forgive my ignorance, but what was it that you saw during that second felling that prompted you to post this? Was it the smaller tree that fell over and came back in the direction of the stump? Thanks in advance for any comments you care to make. Tim

    It's nice to see them treating you right, Reg, as well they should. That commute itself was a huge safety hazard, in my opinion. Good luck on the job, and I hope you can get some good rest in between days. Great video, as always. Thanks for sharing it. Tim

    Sugar would just make me fall asleep faster. What works for me is protein, no carbohydrates. I'd start eating beef jerky about 30 minutes prior to the time I'd normally have trouble keeping my eyes open on a daily commute home from work. When I ate the jerky, the sinking spell just never happened; I was just awake and alert for the whole commute. Without the jerky, things would get a bit dangerous. Avoid breads, crackers, etc. Just meat with a bit of fat on it is ok, in my experience. Tim

    If you had an accident and worksafe investigated, you'd be in strife. I've come from a jurisdiction where no-one gives a toss, to being trained in one where steel toe AND chainsaw protection was mandatory, to here in Oz where the minimum is steel toe for ground based chainsaw work...happy medium.

    I see high level functional skill...no fluff. Many of the moves embody a concept we try to use in bando...a block is a strike, a strike is a block. Parries that efficiently slide and become a cut or stab. Using the half-beat for timing. They look to have their stuff together.

    Well it depends Mick, if you get called right at the beginning, usually a pager alert after a 000 call in our area, it can be everything from hopping out and getting wet stuff on hot stuff, right through to calling for more resources and helping direct them. It also depends on your rank and skill set and the size of the incident, single brigade, multi brigade. On big campaign fires where Incident Management is set up, you report in and are assigned a sector and work on the plan for that sector under a sector commander. We did control of backburns that had been authorized and set, we did structure protection... moving flammable stuff, setting perimeters, waiting, waiting, we did blacking out of hotspots, aka dragging lots of hoses for hrs in end.

    That is part of the appeal of the Amazon book publishing deal. No up front money required, I don't think. Books get printed and shipped only after a customer orders one and pays for it.

    Just for the record, I was not trying to propose that Gerry re-write the whole book all over again. I'm just proposing the use of the Amazon self-publishing facility to take the best PDF version that currently exists, and making it available as a paperback book. Having said that, I know nothing about publishing, and don't even know if a PDF document could be used in that way or not. Thanks. Tim Edit: Here is a link to the main page for Amazon's self publishing information. https://www.amazon.com/gp/seller-account/mm-summary-page.html?topic=200260520 Clicking through on the hard copy link will lead to more details about the royalty arrangements. I'm thinking that Amazon's whole game in life is to try to make things as easy for people to do as it is possible to make it, and I would hope that they propose what writer's think is a fair deal. After all, it is in their interest to try to get as many writers in the world as possible to use their services, just like all of the customers who like to shop on Amazon. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    I'm not Gerry, and I don't play him on TV, but I thought I'd seen him say somewhere that he has no interest in going through the grind that is publishing once again. Maybe if Patrick or Stumpshot could figure out a way to make it happen without involving Gerry in the pain involved, he would give his blessing to the project. Here is the link to the Amazon self-publishing web page, just in case anyone is interested. https://kdp.amazon.com/en_US/l/print-on-demand They require no money up front. Books are only produced after an order for the book is already placed. The downside is that I'm sure Amazon gets a significant percentage of the profit from the sales of the book, which might increase the cost to the end purchasers, and reduce the amount that goes into the pocket of the writer. However, it does make the hard copy available to a much larger audience, potentially. I think the production of the book would be in paperback form only, also. I don't think they produce hard cover copies. Thanks for listening. Tim

    Hey, Stumpshot! Thanks for that offer! It is well understood by me that Patrick has the final say on any issue of distribution. Every time I have wanted another copy of the PDF as a gift for someone else, I have gone online and purchased it from Patrick's website. I would not copy or share it without permission, as it is the biggest bargain on the internet, and well worth the money every time. It is even ok with me if Patrick thinks I should just buy another one, as I knew what I was getting when I purchased it the first few times; no promises were made about free upgrades when the improved versions became available. What I was most interested in hearing from you was about the current state of the edits that have been made to the PDF. Did you do just one revision, or have there been more after that? It did not get discussed further after about October of 2018, if I'm recalling correctly, so I am curious as to how far the document has come, and whether or not you feel as though you have completely finished making changes to it. Thanks in advance for any answers you care to provide, and for all of your efforts on behalf of all of us, to make improvements to this great book. Sincerely, Tim

    Bump. I was just wondering to what extent all of the photo editing ended up changing the original PDF? I bought two or three copies of the original, unmodified PDF, and am wondering if anyone out there owns copies of both the original and the newer ones, and can comment on the difference between them? Thanks. Tim
