    Reminds me of watching cable D8s rooting up large oaks as a little boy. Sand was hard on them. Within 20 years most were replaced with wheel loaders with rakes. Never saw one of those root up a massive oak though. Ron

    Haven't seen a bridle set for a while. Pretty cool.

    I'm out at Williams now. Probably the best weather I've ever lived in. Above most of the fog and below the snow.

    In our rural setting when one works alone or with just one other, it would be nice to have two 911 callers in a life threatening emergency - the one at the crisis and one who knows where the first is and the general lay of the land. 911 can make the decision whether keeping the second caller on the line is beneficial or not. In addition, I believe that my firewood buddies could respond quicker than, and could be of on-site assistance to, emergency personnel. Your thoughts?

    Do any of you have a short code to text if you have an immediate life threatening emergency? Something short that could easily be group texted prior to the 911 call, unlikely to be accidentally sent, and that could be understood to be serious - not misunderstood to be that I need help because I am stuck in the mud, have a hung tree, or it's hot and some extra hands would be nice.

    Thanks,

    Ron

    Pretty cool, but a dozen of them would be pretty pricey to buy and maintain. If I were a backwoods hiker or hunter, I would probably consider one.
