    Politicians Union workers Government workers private industry workers everyone, go to work, do your job, get paid, go home. But in this point, the politicians, as I understand it, who walked out of work, to avoid having enough people at work to do the work they're hired to do. Why representatives aren't at more votes, electronically or in-person, doesn't make sense to me. IDK much about it, TBH.

    Guys are too tough for their own good, too often. Dehydration leads to being a DIChead, disoriented (spacey, where are my gloves/ glasses? what did I come to the truck for?), Irritable, and Combative (if you're looking for an argument, tell a dehydrated person that they are dehydrated). SOOO many people will wait until the engine growls to check the oil, and refill back into the operating range, by analogy. IDK, my method is that I can't read anybody's mind or body better than they can read their own. Employees are told to stop for water before they get thirsty, eat before they get hungry, and take any breaks they want. I've never hired a lazy person.

    If they don't stay for work, FIRE THOSE FUCKERS. We pay them to work. Scumbag politicians. (notice it doesn't say scumbag Republican politicians). I don't understand the 'send bachelors' part. Someone else clue me in?

    Not legal, I'll bet. We had a woman lose her face a decade ago from a 2x4 coming off someones truck. You've heard of DUI Patrols, and such. Here we have signs on the highway announcing Unsecured Load patrols. "Every state has laws that make it illegal for items to fall from a vehicle while on the road. In Washington State, the fine for transporting an unsecured load is $228. If an item falls off a vehicle and causes bodily harm, the driver faces gross misdemeanor charges and penalties of up to $5,000 and/or up to a year in prison. King County's unsecured load fee charged at solid waste facilities is in addition to any penalties or fines by law enforcement officers."

    I figure a heat-challenged body responds less effectively to all things, but a coolvest will not help directly to the asthma. I was wearing a buff yesterday, chunking and chipping. It helped dust, but made breathing a bit more challenging. A respirator for really dusty chipping helps a ton. For less dusty conditions, less so. When the soil is so dry, every step stirs some up, especially at a working pace. Maybe just have to tough it out. Homeowner works for the municipal waste water treatment plant, but is a hands-on guy, and recognized how much cheaper to fix, than guarantee no need to fix. Down below the black chain-link/ cyclone fence, the hill drops very steeply, and there is another house down there! Might need long, strong vertical-speedline rope slings for the wood, IF i get the bid. I don't really want it that much. Always hard to give up a good customer. Wraptor will help.

    Hills particularly need straps. Ratchet straps are easy, cheap and light but won't last forever. You might need to round off any sharp edges the strap will run over, if they do.

    Are you coolvesting it up? Like having portable a/c. I thought about pulling mine out today, but the shade swung around. I have this one to bid, a solid 5' even dbh. Septic system / construction killed it. The pipe from tanks ( under paver patio) to distribution box is right in front of the tree, possibly over the buttress roots. The homeowner's a project manager at a wastewater treatment plant. He is of the opinion that if I break the pipe, he'll fix it. That's a first. Primaries under the limbs uphill, downhill slope on other side, with the pipe.

    A sawbuck makes easy work out of that smaller stuff, many pieces at a time, upright, and away from dirt. You can find a good pallet-sawbuck video for an idea. Easy for the HO to tell the guy cutting the wood up.

    When landscrapers plant them 6" too deep, it takes a long time for buttress roots to show.

    Find a suitable tree, and with a belay-line to an appropriate anchor (SRT device on tree or someone with a saddle), practice climbing on spurs without a lanyard or climbing-line.

    Practice, practice, practice. Use a high-TIP and practice. Get some time with little spur-outs. No big deal. Gaff profile is important. How people get by without good gaff-work, IDK.

    Can you make a vacuum chamber? I mean, I know you can make one? Would it pull the bubbles out of the cracks?

If it looks like I asked a question, but put a period, it's probably a question.
Don't know why I'm question-mark challenged online. 😀 New Year's Resolution, better proof reading.
