    Pretty slick,I met a few climbers in my 8 weeks out there, next time I'm there I might work with a couple. I mainly just ewwed and ahhed this go round. I might have to find out how to pack the wraptor,395xpw and 372 xpw and gear but that would mean I would need to work a day or more to cover expenses lol. I do have a new found respect for steep ground and did experience a good bit of rugged stuff out there:cheers: We have ground here as steep but there its all steep or it seemed like it. I now know your species at least so when someone says Madrone,Blue gum,Ponderosa,Coastal Redwood,Bishop etc I at least know what tree it is! My work out there was however not typical tree work so I will only post one pic and say that your culture sorta got to me almost making me one of those tree huggers:rolleyes:

    Thanks ropensaddle. I spent some time out your way in Jasper. Amazing country, and one of my favorite places! Yea, its hard not to become a tree-hugger if you spend a little time a Redwood forest. I am a tree-killing, tree-hugger myself!

    Nice to start out with some photos that are decent to begin with.

    The first redwood reminds me of the one in the old high school lawn area here in Medford, about 2/3s it's girth. Looks like a fun size trunk to work with if one has to be worked with.

    Old Fir removal from the mid 80's. I want to give shoutout to the man on the Hobbs device (3rd Photo), Bruce the Moose Baker, the best mentor a young climber could ever ask for. You're a true logger, bucker, and mean motherfu**er. Love ya Bro!

    A good sized windfall an old-timer and I finally got around to skidding recently. The wood is as good as it gets, and I will try and get some pics when its being milled.
