    We're still around. Most of the chit chat is at another place.

    Yep, hear that loud and clear. I like to race nitro off road rc buggies. The track, although dirt off road, requires considerable upkeep. Its the only one in Wichita KS, and there's only 2 regulars that can be counted on for volunteer work.

    I've never been to a gtg so I don't know what is expected as far as logs and such. I'm not a racer so even if I organized a gtg, I wouldn't know what to prepare. I'd help with one though if I knew when and where ahead of time.

    Hey Carl, I haven't been good at keeping the lights on :p
    This thread , what it is, still is important.
    We didn't try to kill it, but we did, start another that took off like a rocket.....
    Any one of us 4 state guys could have
    Copied the title off and started it.
    It's like hanging out at a coffee shop,
    Or saw shop

    You can come over but you must host a charity cut or GTG.

    If'n there was a GTG at my place, there wouldn't even be room on the lawn to park all the saws, much less all the lawn chairs. Y'all would have to walk a couple hundred yards just to get all the trucks parked on the street.

    I only went to one event anyway. Had a good time, but i'm not much of a chainsaw racer. I'm a chainsaw user, and not so much for fun, but to make a living. I really liked the company, though.

    I don't recall that you were there? GTG down in Arkansas?

    As I recall, it wasn't exactly lost; I just cut it down with the top. it was just a matter of coming up with the pieces.

    We don't usually call that topping when it is taken down to the last foot above ground. Dan's was worried about that tree falling and squishing his shed. His equipment couldn't get him high enough, and he apparently wasn't able to find anybody else to climb it and cut off the top. So...we called it a demonstration, invited everybody to watch at a polite distance, and then we had a chainsaw party cutting it up after it got to the ground.

    I was really impressed by my two assistants. Hedge & Freehand were like a forestry clearing machine going up that steep hill. I had a hard time crawling up that hill, and they were swinging saws and marching right on up. We lost a lot of time getting set up; I was rather concerned that there wasn't any hope of having a rescue crew within a couple of hours, so I spent time setting a rope that would allow my helpers to get me out of the tree if I screwed up in some way.
