Really? Chain? By law?You'd probably be surprised how many climbers that've cut themselves outta the tree accidentally with their trimsaws severing their climb lines.
One of the reasons so many pros like to finish trigger cuts with a handsaw, before takin a ride.
Funny that I began my career in this biz trimming palms from the top down, flailing away, spiraling downwards, nonstop with my dual triggered Super 2's, nicking my chain lanyard without a care, other than dulling my saw!
I've noted how Australians are kinda stuck on chain use in their crane takedowns, by law!
Gotta stay on your toes n know when to duck dodge or hide, eh mates?
Steel, instilling confidence!
That's why you now have a hole in your hand... Gloves are probably the most overlooked PPE n the biz... And did you not have a rope to lower the saw out to the groundies to re-fuel... this biz is hard and dangerous enough. Not sure why you would ever need to "disrobe".. The entire story sounds like you;ve got systemic issues to fix... and what kind of 60' pine takes more than a tank of gas with a 200t... were you cutting wafers...I hate wearing gloves period.
Kind of slow on the uptake there Murph.Actually I just read that you hads a climbing line and took that off with the saddle... so let me re-frame... do you not trust the groundies to gas your saw???? WTF???
TV shows don;t usually make any money until they are syndicated.. It's all the re-runs that actually make the big $$$... her show happens to replay much better than talk shows which are tied to current events and celebrity events etc, and don't play well down the road, But nothing dates her show and women in particular love watching her take charge... her ratings have been steadily growing and she's by fat the highest paid tv star...I've heard she is paid a ridiculous amount of money.
I don't see why. I think she is an obnoxious *****.
The way I read it was he was describing the blood flow to a point that we would understand, it does not seem to me he had ground guys, he was just being descriptive, I would not call Jon dumb, (have you met him?),He mentioned "it was a two bandanna wound to keep blood from dripping on the groundies"...
So ya... there were groundies .... please don't defend this story... its a shame...
I've never met Jon but from my years of reading him and occasionally butting heads I believe him to be competent. Honestly the man is probably right on the edge of genius/ insane. Aren't we all though? thinking outside of the box!!!!
How did the paw heal up Jon? Hope all is well. Send me a pm on your lastest rigging pistol.
At least I can afford a bucket truck... all these years later and you can't.. maybe time to re-think your game!I'd explain in more detail, if I gave a flyin fug about a bucket boy's opinion of my non dependency on groundies nurse maiding me murph....
Do much tree care with that bucket truck Murph?At least I can afford a bucket truck... all these years later and you can't.. maybe time to re-think your game!
