    The drug test thing is becoming an issue for us. We had two climbers in the last few weeks that would rather smoke pot than keep a 60k with full health insurance job. Neither had a family to raise but I don’t get it.

    I start off my morning with a tall drink of water and then usually a Gatorade while my cup of coffee cools a bit on the way to work. Since I’ve started with a glass of water first thing I’ve felt a lot better and my joints hurt a lot less. I also set alarms on my phone for every hour to remind me to take a drink. I carry a 32 ounce Yeti bottle with me everywhere. Five gallon jug on the truck and I’m amazed that between the three of us is almost empty every day. I also eat small meals all day long with a good sized dinner.

    They just don’t breed like us anymore. Honestly I’ve been lucky with my crew. My third guy is usually a newbie but my second thinks the same way I do. A broken rake is what? $20? That’s $20 bucks more I could make of the boss doesn’t have to replace it. Almost everyone thinks that bosses/owners are just swimming in money and it’s no big deal when they rip a mirror off of a truck or a gutter off of a house. I know shit happens but it shouldn’t happen on a regular basis. Things are changing for the better, but in my mind it should just be common sense. We had a foreman a week ago set an out rigger half on and half off of an asphalt drive way. Big surprise, it broke. No one thinks. And of course he said sorry I messed up. Like it’s not a big deal to replace a drive. I looked at the pictures and then went out to double check my suspicions. The dumbass didn’t even put pads down. Perfect break from the dimensions of the outrigger. Company policy is pads on all surfaces. In my mind it’s a fireable offense. Stump grinder guy broke two windows in a week. Didn’t bother to set up the shields and ground with the nose guard tied up. Laziness and an OSHA violation. All I can say is my back hurts from carrying these guys. In my buzzed up state I’ll end with this. Not many take any pride in what they do anymore. Most think that they are entitled to a well paying job with out doing the work. How’s that for derailed rant!

    Tim. The answer is because most other people don’t seem to give a shit. They lose or destroy things.

    Everyone in the northeast has lymes I’m pretty sure. If caught early the antibiotics can help. But often lymes goes unnoticed and it borrows deep inside you and is hard to eradicate. Under a microscope it looks like a corkscrew.

    I keep 1/2” and 3/4” and that’s it. 3/4” will handle anything out there. To cut it I just tape it off well and use a sharp fillet knife (as Rajan has shown). Burn the ends and shape a bit. I’m not into cutting trees in half most times so a 3/4” only gets brought out on large spars. 1/2” stablebraid is my go to

    Cory I’m not really sure on the wear time yet. I’ve met guys that replace them yearly and mine still looks almost new. Just like every piece of gear it will be user dependent. Honestly my runner that I’ve only had for a short time is showing more wear than the zig-zag. Then again I got into a lot of large removals with tiny drop zones that I was doing the Ironman landing multiple times a day https://youtu.be/yocBQlw_mCA

    RR is more sustainable because all the parts can be replaced. Good to read you Jed. Hope all is well brother. I’m camping and have both the RR and the ZZ with me. If it would stop raining long enough to play I’d do a head to head on DRT,DDRT,or MRS; whatever the hell its called now

    I just bought the ZZ the other day. Super sweet. The new guys can’t use it yet however. Learn the old way and then graduate

    ZZ was my first mechanical. Put a Reon rounds tether to it and it works flawlessly SRT. I use it somewhat a lot. For doubled rope it’s hard to beat.

    Iím looking for a grinder, rg50 or bigger or something comparable. Also looking for a bucket. Under cdl, chip box, diesel. Looking for quality on both. Been seeing a lot of crap out there.

    I love this log splitter. Certainly saves the back. Works best if you use straighter logs and cut nubs but still. Better than the little back breaker splitters. I have the brush and clam shells for my grapple as well. The brush gets used the most. The clam shells are great for big jobs when there is a lot of debris piles to be picked up or when removing grindings. Otherwise it’s easier to load the brute can and shoulder it to the truck. There are tons of cool toys out there but I think it’s key to know when to use them and when not too
