    Jobber plus Quickbooks?

    I use QuickBooks online. I am not familiar with jobber or it's features. I do know that QuickBooks makes it simple to manage all accounts associated with the business. All client information, estimates, and invoices can be created. All company purchases and expenses can be documented. Clients...

    Basic Gear Needed for ddrt

    I believe the best climbers are those that spend the time to thoroughly learn all the ground work before throwing a harness on. If you are looking to be a decent climber, I suggest learning the ground first. You will literally learn the ropes and understand what is happening on the ground. Being...

    I don’t love what I do....

    For the record, I do love what I do. Also, not really pissed off. So it seems people do go the length and hate what they do? Interesting. I don’t think I would be happy with that. I started doing tree work and stuck with it because I enjoyed it. I just don’t see why anybody would invest the...

    I don’t love what I do....

    Again, the subject or question was whether or not somebody would continue doing what they do for as long as they do it, and invest the time and money to learn and advance their skills if they do not love what they do. This was not an evaluation of my character, work ethic, or why I was...

    I don’t love what I do....

    Well your response implies that I am irresponsible or that I don’t work well with others. Why would I honestly post this topic if there was a legit reason for them letting me go. If there was a legit reason I would not have went on to treebuzz to post this topic. I wasn’t aware that every single...

    I don’t love what I do....

    Actually, I’ve been around for a bit. I just don’t post much, and yes there was no good reason for me being terminated. He said word for word “you haven’t broken any rules or violated any company policies. This is hard to do but we are letting you go.” I seriously thought it was a joke. I did...

    I don’t love what I do....

    It was a boss who fired me for what it seemed to be no reason actually. I had to hear from another employee that he had said those things. He would not give me any reason at all. I was his top climber. Yea some people definitely do suck.

    I don’t love what I do....

    Today I was basically told that I do not love what I do. This was quite funny to me. I have been climbing trees for over 13 years now. I am a certified arborist and plan to open my own legit tree care company soon. What do you think? Does anybody go to those lengths if they do not love what they do?

    tree stuff, its been real....

    I just recently had an issue with equipment not being shipped on time. I called TS and they responded fairly quickly, but said my package had already been shipped. I was a bit upset because it had been over a week and I still hadn’t received it. Ten minutes after I get off the phone, I get an...

    Bridge connector...which swivel...ABR...???

    As far as swivels go, I have used the rook, petzl open, and the rock exotica nano swivel. Rook is a bit clunky for me. I like the nano for its light compact design with the rubber grommet. Keeps from side loading and doesn’t extend my system off the bridge very much. I had also used the basic...

    Making the switch.....HAAS?

    Thanks for the tips. I really love SRS. I feel it was a bit more physical at first because I was using muscles that were not used as much. I get more done SRS and have more energy at the end of the day. Can't wait to get my rope walker system next week. I will look into the Yale 11.7's

    Making the switch.....HAAS?

    I get that rope choice is more personal. I was really just looking for a few ideas as to what works well with RW. I am already fast and efficient as I have been climbing for 13 years and have dialed my skills. I'm quite skilled but want to be better. Just looking for some ideas to start with as...

    Making the switch.....HAAS?

    What I have been doing is crossing a loop runner over my shoulders and clipping into the "X" and then to my RW. The kit I ordered comes with a chest harness so I'll be set when it get here.

    Making the switch.....HAAS?

    Thanks guys. I have ordered the Velox kit with the Ct ascender and the chest harness. SAKA looks nice but I got impatient looking for a kit with everything I needed. I found a ropewalker kit with HAAS Velox for $200. I think that's a pretty decent price considering most retailers online are...

    Making the switch.....HAAS?

    After 13 years of climbing, I finally decided to actually spend some time with SRT(SRS). I had tried it before, but never gave myself enough time to actually get used to the differences. I always felt like I should just stick with what I knew and that was DRT(MRS). Besides that, I really...

    Unicender for sale

    I have a new unicender I am willing to let go for $200. It has never been climbed on other than an on rope test in the shop. I have decided to go a different route. I am willing to trade for a zigzag or possibly make a deal on some other device such as RR. $200 you pay shipping as well unless...

    Long duration in spikes

    I never could find any comfort in any type of pads other than the super wraps. I've used the steel insert super wrap pads since I first started using spurs. I have tried geckos which are nice and lightweight but pads are not comfortable at all. The edges just dig into my shin.
