    I was going to congratulate him on the chaps in the last video, instead of the comfy pajama pants.

    Meanwhile, the Kask helmet is going back. Tried to wear it for a quick 1 hour chip session, but the muffs keep popping back out, won't stay engaged.

    Got the new mirrors for the bucket truck, installed them today. Now we just need to cover up all that orange paint and decal it up!

    Bend the wires in a little, gently.
    If it looks like I asked a question, but put a period, it's probably a question.
    Don't know why I'm question-mark challenged online. 😀 New Year's Resolution, better proof reading.

    Thanks for the tip, but didn't work. Seems as though it's just not compatible with my two foot head. Works fine for the two climbers (narrower faces), so one of them took it on. I'm just going to get the Vizr for my Petzl Vertex

    Interesting how a limited gene pool and a limited labor force seem to be so closely related.

    Excellent. I've been flying one I bought from Rico.

    Speaks to the product, that you buy a replacement.

    Do you use it for take-downs, pruning, or all around?

    Use it for everything Sean. SRT, Ddrt, pruning, TDs, bucket work. Good all around saddle. Got 5 years on the 3.1. The fall arrest suspenders were still good, so I had the new connector straps (spares) put back. Good to go.

    Another Husqy 550XP showed up on the doorstep today. We liked the 550XP G so much we got a 2nd one, since it's a great package -- power to weight ratio, great for limbing, bucking, and medium felling. It was supposed to be used, but showed up without even ever having gas in the tank!

    Now to mull over the options for another aloft saw: used 200T, brand new 201 TC M, or Echo 2511T. Might go with the middle option for now, as a medium climbing saw under warranty would probably scratch the sweet spot (for reliability!).
