    Worker hit by falling trunk

    This video could be added to Moss’s thread about the importance of communication in tree work, but I didn’t want to hijack his thread. Vid is only about 3 seconds, but it’s looped. Hard hat probably saved his life. Unbelievable lack of awareness by both parties.

    How would you spend $100k?

    My college roomates’ dad had a bumper sticker that said, “I spent almost all my money on booze, broads, and boats. The rest I wasted.”

    Too late. Like all people that voted against Hillary, I insist that my kids be raised in a house filled with greed and incompetence. ;)

    Agree. This is one reason I don't do social media. No FB, no Insta, no Twitter. My kids don't yet either. They can get their butts outside. Or they can read a manual iPad (book). I'm sure they'll fight me on this eventually, but it's a fight worth having. I say the less internet the better...

    Fascinating very short article about the cause of these school shootings. You'll barely need to scroll down to read it all. Totally non-political, non-partisan. A restatement of a conclusion reached by Malcolm Gladwell, if you're familiar with him. No solutions, but I think a good explanation...

    My point is that they're being overused in general, and for more important issues. This leads to instability. Laws are much better made by congress. Harder to pass, harder to overturn. You know, Constitutional.

    Agreed. I'm not a fan of EOs. Turns each president into a temporary Emperor. Law remains unsettled, always subject to reversal. People, like economies, do best in environments of certainty, stability and predictability.

    Using the federal government to attack his sworn enemies? Kinda like Obama winking while his IRS audited/harassed conservative groups? What's good for the goose... While you stay focused on this fever dream of impeachment he is ramming his agenda through. Made possible by Obama and his...

    A tremendously flawed man for sure. But again, thinking he's stupid plays right into his hands. Might even get him another term.

    God knows you can criticize Trump for a LOT of things...... but you deem him stupid at your own peril. Like it or not (I suspect not) he's the multi-billionaire President of the United States. Damn I wish I was that dumb.

    But we had even easier access to those tools of death before Columbine and we didn't see these kinds of shootings. Like I asked above, what the hell changed?

    School shootings basically started with Columbine. Really didn't happen before that like they do today. Guns were just as plentiful and probably easier to get pre-Columbine. So why no shootings back then like today? What changed?

    Mini platform in front of truck

    I'd be nervous about that setup. Lots of bouncing would be hard on the platform when loaded. I'd be very worried about fender benders too. Takes an otherwise cheap repair and makes it a huge loss if the mini is involved.

    Pain on Gaffs

    Let's zoom in on that...... Hmmm. Weird. LOL. Just kidding Rico. Those look great. I might get some. I shoot for $300 as a limit. Getting harder to do. I've been in Danner Super Rainforests for about 8 years now but they're about to crack $400. Gonna find a new boot. These Hoffmans look...

    Tokyo Railway Treework

    Very Japanese. Clean, efficient, and uses latest technology! Great rigging. Pleasure to watch a big job go smoothly and safely. Everything anticipated and executed beautifully. Thanks for taking time to put these vids together. I know it's not easy.
