    Some storm work from Yesterday. Steep wet grassy slope in a creek draw. We have been clearing this draw out for a couple years now since the fire went through it. Almost took the guys house. This tree was green but the roots were done. Last part of the video you will see 1/2 the root crown and stumps going down the hill on a 2:1. I have been using that pine stump for the portable winch redirect for over a year. I just left the stump there knowing full well I would need it again. Exploiting the only flat spot close to the creek we can get the mini to. Fodder. <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/wBfLmnYpSCw" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    Find myself evaluating the jobs ill take on. Especially since my crane guy passed on. Looked at a 6k crane job and walked. Told them, you can't afford me. Just did not feel up to the task. The crew has been borderline co-operative and efficienct. I did not want to add a new unknown from an outside crane source. My energy and patience are on the edge. The young guys can have the big job fun. That 45 trees in 1 acre I did was about the last I'll see of those. Crazy days.

    I never have filed the chain much on the 150.. Damn thing usually gets buggered when the bar tip gives out and I just buy the set. I have the files though. Touch up...get to work. The 2511 is my go to these days though.

    Ahhh. I may use 2-3 Loops a year on the small saws. So it just doesn't warrant me buying a spool.

    I put the Sthil chain on it that I run on the 200t. Worked great. Much better than the Oregon it came with. FWIW,it was one link diffy on the spinning one from the Oregon.

    If we could work the jobs on the books, we would be in the money. Booked through May currently with a 6 week back log in the wings. Two years of fires and a couple of exceptionally wet years is keeping the credit maxed out. Hateful.

    Rear Mount seems obviously the smartest for tree work. But I got this baby for 49 k so. . . I like it.

    hey gerry,
    just wanted to chat with you about the RI ITCC. is it possible to get your phone number?

  9. Hey Gerry- 2 quick questions for you...

    1- I'm on the verge of buying a video camera to make hd quality splicing vids (some to sell, some to youtube). I'm looking at the canon HG-10. any thoughts? What's the secret to getting HD vids up on youtube?

    2- I'm getting inquiries from people wanting to climb the redwoods. I think you saw a thread from a trip where i took some people up...but these are up in the state parks where, as you know, climbing is prohibited, Any suggestions for some private land where the owner would let me earn money on their property? I'd be glad to pay, of course...

    Hope all is well...

    love
    nick
  10. Aloha Jerry!

    I wanted to write and thank you again for setting the whole rec climb up. I'm really looking forward to meeting you.

    I know you closed the number of people several weeks ago so I feel bad for asking - a very close friend who lives in Portland is thinking about driving down to see me while I'm in humboldt and I told her I would have to check with you first to make sure it is okay. I am camping nearby but I would want to hang out with her so I was writing to ask permission if she could tag along with us.

    If that doesn't work, no problems at all Jerry. See you soon~!

    ~~~ Jon
