    Yah Steve - retaining moisture in the heartwood and no serious cracks yet.
    that gave me the ring of confidence I needed to aggressively attack this one.
    (still a few interesting moments tho)

    I like the way Ben picks up these homeless guys along the railroad tracks and puts them to work doing... er... wait... was that you, Ben?

    Impressive, Ben. I always enjoy your vids. Thank you for taking the time to record and share them.
    Nice new light weight bar on that Stihl.

    Thankyou Craig,
    yah I prefer the rollmatic E - it doesn't last as well as the normal solid stihl bar but the flex can work to your advantage and is def lighter.

    The reason in part why I record this stuff is something RegC once said in one of his videos.
    something along the lines of " Once you cut the tree down no one will ever get the chance to climb it again - they won't get to see the views and sights from that tree ever again"
    so I document the journey and share my journey with you good folk along the way.
    Ben
