    New gear

    The guys from Petzl came over from France yesteday and showed off some of the new gear fro this year. Damn sweet Double rope rig, nice throwbags and new throwline among other things. They really made the Top harness super comfortable. And the Zig-Zag is slick. I already see a way to run it in SRT.

    Unicender glitch One came in to the shop last week. Failed on a climber while aloft. No injuries or fall, just a little elevation of heart rate. I sent the bad unit to Rock that day.

    1" block

    CMI came out with thier new 1" block. Going to be beating it it down the next few weeks. See how it does. I like the simple makeup. Not a clean as the DMM, but made here in the USA, and not too steep in price.

    440 is back

    I was at Woods this afternoon and found out that the 440 is back in production in the US, for a while at least. Good news I figure.

    82 yards with a Bow?

    I read an article in the back of the Northwest Sportsman, which sadly is not even close to the quality of Fishing and Hunting News which it replaced. Anyway, the article talked about how this pair of hunters had ranged an Elk at 82 yards and took the shot. They claimed they practiced at this...

    Anybody watched Watson and his moronic adventures in the Southern ocean. These guys are the worst in seamanship I have ever seen. Whale wars. Too bad for the whales, these clowns aren't much help.

    Kunde gets broke in proper

    Here's some pics of Nathan Kunde doing his first 0 impact removal. It was a bitch too, no drop zone to speak of. Everything had to get drifted out about 40 feet from the hole and set in a small spot by the house. The kid weighs like 105# so considering the block and big saw weigh half what he...

    weekdays or weekend?

    I'm curious which folks would prefer, going to training seminars on weekdays or weekends? I am thinking if an employer is paying for their emplyees to go, they would prefer a weekend schedule so as to not lose production. The same line of reasoning could be applied to the individual treeman, get...

    English, do you speak it?

    Our wonderful PC state, which by the way is in a several billion dollar budget shortfall, has another clever move. We are now required to get a boater safety card, an easy way for the state to get 10.00 from every boater. The kicker is the study guide printed in English costs 10.50. The guide...

    Would you do this for free?

    I'm in a bit of a spot here. I had told the developer that owns my property that if they had a tree that was sketch for them I would take care of it. Meaning, local, 2 maybe 3 hours work kind of deal, maybe even a couple of times. Well he wants to know if I will go to Delaware and do this...

    Folks here around the PNW, the Perseus meteor show will be good early tomorrow morning. Should be easy to see in the East from about 0200 till 0430. I have always liked the idea of burning rocks from space hurtling into our atmosphere.:evil: Check it out.

    Crazy Kids?

    I started a hazard analysis for a developer today but wasn't able to make much headway. All the corners and monuments had been pulled, watershed boundary marker, etc. Out of about 200 trees only a handful didn't have crap like this painted on them.
