    I was wondering why ya pulled the wedges out of the pouch, then dropped them. I don't know why you were worried, that tree didn't look nearly big enough to hurt you.

    You normally in Western WA? I'd like to tag along, carry your mix and oil, whatever just to learn if your even near the area.

    Thanks for the video.

    First, let me say to all the haters. . . This only confirms and solidifies the Patterson-Gimlin film.

    Of course I mean this all in good fun and jest.

    Yeah... Montucky is awfully close to Wyoming... So I probably wouldn't be going anyway...

    Though I knows some folks in both WY and MT that think they owe me so...

    Nice.
    Replacement radio remote controlled PTO winch for my tractor is next on my 'solo and proud of it' circus act shopping list. Long overdue.

    Big shot, wrist rocket on steroids...

    Uses a weighted bag and some tiny line, then use it to pull the proper line up, stole that from the arborists...

    Doesn't work real slick if you want to hang cable, cause cable is heavy. But the new rigging rope that arborists are using is pretty tough stuff, for little trees like this one, its fine, anything more I still wan't cable up there. And if there is a bunch of limbs it can be tough to get the line where ya want it.

    But a Big Shot is like $150-180? throw bags about $12, throw line $30 for 200' and around a $2 a foot for good rigging rope, all told around $300, while hiring some dingus to climb em at $100 a tree... pretty much pays for itself in short order.

    I'll climb em if I have to, but its not something I look forward to, so I try to find anyway out of it I can

    P.S. I still don't trust rope, knots are natural weak spots, and anykind of sharp anything will cut it, you have to take your time and set it up proper like, cable is much more forgiving.
