    A photo from over 30 years ago. Standing on a 125 foot redwood spar after blowing a 105 foot top. Going for a Hap Johnson "coffee break" moment! FullSizeRender copy 2.jpg

    image.jpg Being long n lanky's an advantage dealing with big conifer's like that, no doubt!

    But being a munchkin has advantages too.

    At least in eucs n stuff!

    I'm 5'8" @ 155.

    Live long n prosper Rico!

    Do you know Tom Craven Rico?

    Craven Logging Lake Tahoe?

    Gave me my first genuine Spencr Logging Tape!

    He pretty much worked his magic from the ground though.
