    Tree09 replied to a thread What3words. in Business Management
    I think it's a brilliant idea. Many of my job sites are in a cornfield in the middle of nowhere, places that don't have addresses, and the current pin dropping doesn't work between apple and android. I'm going to look into it more, especially if it's a gps coordinate system that works flawlessly between systems and is super easy to send info. If you can actually tell people 3 words and they can find an exact spot that's very impressive.

    I worked in a town this year that had mostly number street names, but not intelligently, they had north and south numbers, then had north 11th north etc. Odds and evens weren't used for ns/ east west either. It almost seemed like they started good, but did more and more shots as the night went on and lost control of it lol. I feel terrible for the mailman and the emergency responders there, i don't know how many times they told me a street and i was on the other side of town

    Cory is hardcore tho :/: :lol: that sucks, mainly for him, you dodged a bullet by getting rid of him before something bad happens. He only stole a sawzall (which i would want back), and didn't actually mess up your operation. Guys like that stay worthless, you can't fix them

    Awesome there as well, the world needs more bass vocalists!!! Also, hearing the down the the river to pray also makes me think of the actual meaning behind that song, which of course is an old slave song, teaching their kids how to hide from dogs. Very common theme in traditional gospel music, same underlying meaning as wade in the water, basically go to water to hide your scent from the hounds. Such beauty coming from such misery, as is true with most music.

    Having something to steady yourself is very nice, that's why stairs have hand rails. They allow you to steady yourself preventing a fall.

    I could definitely see how just dropping down on there would be much nicer than working out of a boat! This was my problem working construction after doing tree work for a bit, no matter what i was working on, i wanted to set a line and so i could just go anywhere... climb down this and up that just to go right over there?.... eff that I'll just swing right to it hahahahahaha. Are you wanting ddt so you can pull your rope out of the way or because you aren't used to srt? Srt is very easy man, I'm shocked you aren't using it yet (if that's the case), trust me if i can do it so can anyone. I would think srt would be safer in case the rope tail gets caught on something too, which would be a high likelihood working on wrecked cars in a river. You don't need a bunch of gear to work srt, even a 3 to one rads system works decently enough and can operate using a petzil rig or similar device. When i finally did start applying rope work to construction, i approached it exactly how the industrial rope access work was done so that way it was done to the standards expected in that discipline. I'll admit i found it overkill, but then again there's a reason they demand such overkill in the first place. I'm not familiar with rescue work rope standards (the environment you will be operating in), but i imagine they are similar to the overkill i experienced and forced myself to deal with for professionalism and safety liability. I would bet that the crews you are dealing with look to you for your expertise, because they likely understand your badassery and multiple discipline expertise. However if the standards are as the industrial side is, i would voluntarily adopt them so no questions could ever be raised about your actions and experience. You could always girth hitch a friction saver to the boom to get an anchor point. An srt line is also retrivable with an alpine butterfly with safety carb acting as a jam knot, and can actually be used to limit the rope tail as well.

    It sounds like you definitely should be using a yo yo, aka retractable. In construction, you aren't required to have a chin strap because you aren't climbing like that, with hardcore pendulum swings and such. I have seen a crew of rescue guys that were on site have actual climbing helmets, but that's it. I think you are thinking too much and worrying about a helmet when you need to be worrying about using the wrong fall arrest device. Using a retractable with a tie in about waist high would result in a fall to about the bottom flange of the beam, where you could easily get back up from. A 6 foot fixed length lanyard would definitely be the wrong choice for this application, as you are taking a longer fall than needed and a retractable would actually work better on the safety cables because it is right next to you.
