    How'd it go today?

    You have a point, but I lost my taste for mechanical adventure and spontaneity years ago. I spent a good bit of my life driving stuff that had no business being on the road. The sense of victory after a successful simple trip was kinda satisfying, but I don't really miss it :^D

    How'd it go today?

    How much are fuel pumps? I mighta replaced that for the hell of it, just so I wouldn't have to do it later.

    I was thinking that. They're made to tough out storms. How's the root structure on them, and how do they decay? IOW, what would make you say "Nope!" to a palm tree?

    Tree felling vids

    At least it was slow. I've seen a couple videos where guys got thrashed on the stem; hit with the saw, and damned near thrown off.

    The Official Treehouse Articles Thread

    This article isn't super interesting, but it links to some other mildly interesting articles too. What I like about it is it vindicates my design preference against modern lighting. IMO, candlelight is the wavelength to emulate, with incandescent lighting a runner up. Amber switch lights are...

    I guess they're gonna be saw logs? What length to you cut at? I'm always undecided, so I leave them as long as possible. I figure it's easier making them shorter than making them longer :^D

    O.C.G.D. Thread, part two

    Very useful Jed, particularly the hitch instructions. I've been looking on the web at different pictures of setups, and seeing what people are using as hitches. I've tied a bunch of different hitches, but the only one I've used is the classic prusik wrap, which isn't particularly good for this...
