I got to visiting with him while he was sewing up my foot and he was really cool. Seemed like a true professional. He was a helicopter pilot in Vietnam. After that he went into the medical profession. He said he let his pilots license go because he didn't have the time to stay proficient at flying and staying on top of things in the medical field. He seemed very dedicated to his job.Hella stories, Buddy!! Docs can be dicks...but you still gotta love 'em. eeerrrrr??? That may not have come out right....
Yes it would have been easier to jack it over but this was the only tree that really needed persuaded and a half dozen wedges are way lighter than a jack. I can't remember how far from the road I was but it was aways.Wow that was a freaking kickass run of pics and stories, thanks for posting! It's a shame those mishaps happened but good to share so we can all learn.
I found it fascinating that you let the dozer sit for a day and then it was fine to run, no wrenches needed. And that a seemingly harmless T storm caused mayhem with a dusty road.
Btw, the pics of the big tree you fell- if it needed that many wedges in I was wondering if maybe jacking it would have been easier.
