    I've been climbing on my rw a lot lately. Cmi pulley 10" stiffy, with a michoacan that's been the only hitch combo I climb on now. Love the RW it's way simple should have brought on forever ago. Climb high, nice tether it looks compact. Have u tried a rope runner I'm getting one soon I hope, just thought u might have some input.

    NO_bivy i run a lot. About 5 miles a day almost every day of the week, so i do know that swimming def, burns more calories then running though, your going to be a beast when you can swim a whole 2.4 miles non stop. Good luck nutrition is the key to any regement though, so eat clean.... Good luck to you.

    Bad on the body. I think they should come up with a powered milker that grips (gently) one way, and easily slides the other, like an ascender and powered hammer, a la blacksmithing/ powered desk staplers, but geared to hammering rope.

    I wonder if its like the Pepsi Challenge, where the market grew due to adverting, and they both won, rather than just a fight over market share. Dentists and such won, too... put there kids though college. Increased use of splicing services?

    I always limit the amount of areas where people put tools. Ideally, where they belong in the truck is plan A. Plan B is one "staging area", as Butch said in the Groundman article, near someplace you won't be dropping things, under the eave, on the deck, next to the flower bed, and especially out of the area where someone can back over it with a mini/ truck. The job I'm working now has a great slot in the trunk of the tree that magically fits the bar end ;) , so that we can both see where it is, and it doesn't fall off the top of a log then have the log roll over it or the mini crush it one way or the other. Gear is hardest to damage when its off the ground.

    Maple wreck over a fence and road. Day 1 5 months ago, an included-bark fork ripped out, taking out the neighboring church's furnace. Last week, without a storm, another bad fork split, landing in the yard, on top of some building material for a garage in the middle of being built. They go lucky, and didn't have any damage to the funny osb/ foam sandwiched panels, or the trusses. The rest of the yard had been cleared for fruit and nut trees, and a patch of grass for the young daughter, then this tree failed. The whole landscape is being redone, so I don't even have to worry about impact. The big trunks will make a dent, unless I can flop them onto a chip pile (mulch for the orchard). All the material can be chipped onsite or dumped around the corner at the church's community gardern. The mini will move the chipper in and around. I couldn't drive it in with a truck, due to the site situation. My chipper is at another job in the country which was the original plan for the day, but rain changed that. It didn't work out logistically to go get it first, so I just stacked material for the chipper until I was out of room, and we were out of time. I learned an important lesson, remember than when a tree loses a big piece in a storm, the lower trunks can be cracked without total failure, for 5 months! I was thinking of rigging off that leader to swing pieces from over the fence into an open drop. Didn't get a Before pic, and was pretty busy with this one. Mostly dry conditions, but it rained for half and hour while I was up there. I'll speedline or lower the street side of the canopy into the yard, to the chipper. Annual pruning customer's flowering Thundercloud plums. Their family is a distributor for children's clothing, and gave Dahlia a rain jacket and matching boots from their inventory. A nice tip!
