    Cory, not a dig at all, just an observation. First of all, when I talk about "people" in general, I don't mean everybody. Obviously not everybody wants to make content online. That's totally fine, and I get it. I'm talking about the type of person who has thought about making some stuff, whether it's videos, or anything else. I'm saying that 99.999% of THOSE people, will never do anything online, because they are afraid of "johnnypants49" (random, anonymous dude on Youtube) shitting all over whatever it is that they made. You know what I mean, like picking out that quarter of a second moment, in minute 3, of their video where they didn't exactly follow the Z133 standard, or whatever. It's the black-and-white argument, either your video is super-duper great, perfect, all-time incredible, or ........ it sucks. And that's just where the internet has taken us to. And I'm fine with that, it's just interesting to me. Yes, of course, anything you post online is going to get pulled apart. Trust me, I know. I ask the world to pull my stuff apart everyday. Thank you guys for your feedback, I really do appreciate it. One thing that really stands out to me, is that even after going out of my way to make a video that is as short as possible, people still complain that it's too long. That fascinates me, and I love it. Regarding the argument that people (who might actually want to make videos), can't make videos because of a lack of gear, is something that I reject entirely. Every one of us is walking around with an incredibly powerful super-computer in our pockets, which just happens to contain a completely amazing digital camera/video camera, that would have cost thousands of dollars just 10-15 years ago. That in itself just boggles my mind. Thank you friends for the feedback. I don't post stuff here so that people can tell me how good it is. Exactly the opposite. And I really appreciate that. So, kudos to you all. Seriously. - Patrick

    Egregious indeed. This is why 99.999% of people will never post anything. This made me smile :). Thanks everybody for the feedback. On a side note, this video is doing better than most of my stuff to date, not sure if it got picked up by the algorithm or what. Will be interesting to see how it does in the long run. Cheers, Patrick

    TreeMuggs replied to a thread Ups and Downs... in MBTV
    On second thought, no, a vertical speedline would not have worked in this scenario, at least not any better than negative rigging. I was using multiple rings to spread the load over the entire leader, which was on a good lean, fishing pole style. With a vertical speedline I would just have a rope going from the cut to the base. That initial shock load of the wood slamming into the rope would put a crazy tension on the end of the leader. I think fishing pole was better in this situation. Just my opinion...

    TreeMuggs replied to a thread Ups and Downs... in MBTV
    I actually hadn't considered the vertical speed line before in a situation like that. The arm I was on in this video was at least 30 degrees from vertical. But yes, a vertical speed line would have worked for that wood. My problem with the technique is the hardware on the piece (whether it's a biner, shackle, or whatever) slamming into the hardware at the base, where the rope is tensioned. Is there a more elegant solution for a vertical speedline than having 2 pieces of steel slam into each other? Thanks.

    Ropes can go in a chipper just as fast in a bucket as if you're climbing. I try to hang the rope on something that will tear away. In this case a plastic saw scabbard.

    CoreyYLTG replied to a thread Motivation in Business Management
    I'm a one man show who hires subs for the work I have. I myself also sub as a climber. Last year I just fucking hated doing tree work. I was beyond burned out with it and just about everything in life. So I jacked my prices way up and became honest to the point of rude with customers hoping I would work less. I ended up working less, but making more money for way better clients. Tree work is expensive because it is expensive for me to do it, and expensive for the home owner to not have it done. Rational people understand that and will pay a premium for quality. Customers I don't want don't understand that. Good luck RegC.

    Not taking that bet ar all. I love me some toys but I still use a Blake or taughtline on conifers or other trees where I climb on a rigline because I don't want to gum up my good stuff.

    Reduce canopy and thin lower for wind penetration. Or leave it alone and clean it up when it blows over. I'm a tree guy and not a cop so do whatever.

    This would just be for crane work, so normally a shackle or bull ring on the cable. It's only an issue when I'm hanging slings for another climber, which involves me bombing out of the tree as fast as I can 20 or more so times.
