    Hold everything as lightly as safe. consider some Galeton hulk-gloves to cut vibes.

    Probably no bears or cougars there, Stephen. Looks like that would have been way worse using a full wrap;). I love back chaining up to my hinge herky jerky. Did he cut that far side off? Couldn't really see. Looked questionable. That whole dangling from a climb line, no lanyard was so rookie. Woulda been a terrible time for a springboard ;).

    Got a CS2511t. Had to look down every once in a while to remember that I was not cutting with my Silky Sugoi, it was so light, with the heavy echo bar and chain. Easy to bog down when cutting full bar length with metal dogs, so had to be delicate with the pressure. Zip Zip Zip. Going to make the 193t look heavy.

    He had his Safety- Squint going... Have I ever mentioned One-eye Bob, One-eye Levi, or One-eye Guy.

    I've enjoyed the support on this storm work from Tyler, being the only can-do on the crew is my normal.

    terrible PNW weather. yesterday it was sunny and 74. Worse today, I think. ;) I think Tyler will be a Coolvest believer after seeing them in person, though when I showed them to him, it was a bit of flurries, right at the beginning of his trip.

    Birch is known to give me problems, if the engine isn't turned up to the right setting (mine chips at variable speed, from 1-10, so to speak, unlike hydro chippers). The little bits build up too much. If someone doesn't speed up the engine and puts in too big of a brush piece, my discharge chute clogs, as its tangly, and my blower fan speed is proportional to engine speed. Not much else, in my market, wants to clog up the works as badly. Rare occasion, operator error. Running at variable speeds saves lots of gas and engine wear. Maybe the stringy nature of birch fiber is part of the equation. I have very too little experience with eucs to weign in.

    Big props to Tyler Durden, waay out to reduce a buckled, so double trucker-strapped, trunk. I drank coffee and picked up sticks...well, maybe a little more.;)

    Tyler Durden put on spurs today, first time for the trip... Dying fir... Dead fir. I went between speedlining and pulling the top for him, and a row of firs to fell up front. All put on ground only... No cleanup. I'll probably need to knock over a few trees for the neighbor, now.

    Giving each other a hard time, like the guy stopping for the wank while tipping... This might go beyond the 'give each other a hard time'. For me, if I'm doing second grade math in 10th grade, by analogy, I would take a brick over the head of subtlety from my boss, rather than get fired for incompetence.

    Nobody wears velcro shoes. I think that its simply a matter of if they feel like learning. If they were about to be fired over it, they would learn RIGHT NOW!!!!! If you tell them not to come into work until they are done being Day 10 rookies. 180 days in... If they are wearing velcro or slip-on, be worried, very very worried. A double-slipped square knot is way harder than a bowline...my daughter, who is 6 can tie both a shoe-lace knot (double-slipped square knot) and a robe-belt knot (double-slipped square knot). She is about to progress to a clove-hitch. By the time she's 8, she will tie a clove behind her back, guaranteed (she likes magic, and trying to do things behind her back). Use Mick's approach, and call they DTR until they can not be DTR (day 10 rookie). From then on call them groundies, until they want to be a Groundman or Arborist's Assistant. Ask they if they want to be a stick-monkey, not a Groundman. Maybe that all they want. If someone kept teasing me about being a waste of space, because I was being a waste of space, I'd prove them wrong in a heartbeat...but then again, I'm not a groundie for a reason.

    Trying to engage the new folks. The thread title is Welcome New Members, not Introduce Yourself as a New Member (to the sometimes very experience-heavy, revered silverbacks like Jerry's, Graeme, Reg, so maybe intimidating for a new member) Thread. I know that if they read the first post, should anyone start 2902 posts ago, they will see it says to introduce yourself.

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.
