    I got a Rock Exotica prusik minding double pulley (kinda big) and a Rock Exotica double rescue pulley with bearings. Works for me, 5:1 is awesome, can feel the rope stretching and the tree bending. If I had to buy again and wanted to save a few bucks, Id probably get these from Camp. Shop around and you might find a better price. Camp makes nice stuff, and you probably wont find double pulleys at that price unless its Chinese junk. For another 20$ each, you can get the Pro model of them. I believe the difference is bearings vs bushing. https://www.moosejaw.com/product/camp-usa-dryad-double-pulley_10308560

    I’ve heard/ read about shrooms being practically a cure for PTSD. Some positive stuff with MDMA too. Even if it’s not, it’s a helluva lotta fun! My favorite place for such activities is around Devil’s Hole in the Niagara Gorge. Very tranquil listening to the rapids. Just don’t get the idea to go swimming.

    Was it running hot with the one broken fan blade? I’d think not much but sure better to replace before a 2nd one breaks. Got a broken fan blade on my truck, it’s friggin plastic.

    Your groundies must love you. I’d have shut your truck off after about 3 minutes of that shit.

    Shot in the dark. Pressure wood is going to see less pressure as the limb hangs more vertically and tension wood will see more tension. Maybe to the point where one can just yank the branch off by hand and toss or drop it. That same scratch on tension side would still pop it off.

    Mick’s right of course. When in doubt, rig it down. I’ve always felt Sycamore held hinges pretty well. What’s the story behind those pics, Butch or Jerry? Dynamite? Did it just crumble when it hit the ground?

    No matter how many times I see the pics, I’m still blown away every time. Wonder where the lumber ended up, and how the boards looked. Wonder if those folks that own the boards know any of the history of it’s origins.

    Plus if you already got MA set up, it’s easy to add a prusik and have progress capture in case the rope puller does slip or even if it fails completely. It’s happened before.

    Jonny replied to a thread Best rope puller in Gear Forum
    As far as I know there’s no arb supply shops in our area, closest is probably the Vermeer dealer in Albany and I’m not 100% sure they sell climbing or rigging stuff, just that many Vermeer dealers do. Everything I got gets ordered online. If you’re interested I got a new Red w white tracer 150’ 1/2” 12 strand I’ll part with for what it cost, I forget the make, but I got 300’ and cut it in half, and it’ll probably be a long time before I need to use the other half. Came from eBay for .50c a foot, was either Canada or US made. I’ll bet Brocky or someone could ID it if I put a pic up. Feels like True Blue, pretty heavy and stretchy. PM me if you’re interested.

    I use 12 strand for my maasdam and it works great. Sometimes piggyback it on some mechanical advantage.

    Is Chiavetta’s just a Western NY thing or do you guys all eat this stuff? Best chicken I’ve ever had, no question. Can order it on Amazon. The company makes an Italian salad dressing too, very good stuff.

    Beauty! Think of it as an extension of your climbing line that could support you, me, and Roseanne all at once. I spy some 8mm Ultratech too, that stuff worked great on any 1/2” 16 strand.

    Jonny replied to a thread saw gas deteriorating in Chainsaws!
    Bummed about my source of ethanol free 89. All 31 Noco stores/ gas stations in the area got bought, and new owners ain’t doing ethanol free. It was so convenient, there was always one close by. Found a gas station on the local Indian reservation that has ethanol free 91, but some of the spots on the rez have had complaints about water content in the fuel and complaints about fuel not being metered out correctly, meaning paying for a gallon and getting around .9 gallons. That was years ago but still think I’ll be buying premixed soon. These days my saws go weeks and months without being run. I’ve used fuel that was probably sitting in the can for 9 months, no problem.

    You might’ve been employing a junkie. Purely speculation. Fast cash in this biz will attract them though, along with potential of high dollar tools. If he wanted purified, spring, reverse osmosis water he shoulda brought it. Grown ass man still needs mothering? I’m sorry to hear this. FWIW I’d jump at the chance to work with you, along with a few others here. Maybe if all is still well when my little birds fly the nest (6 years) I’ll drop in an application.
