    I’m having to step away from tree climbing and I’m getting rid of most of my climbing and rigging gear and my top handle saw. I’ll try to make a list of all the gear I have to sell with pictures and prices but everything is up for negotiation. Local pickup near Cincinnati or Northern Kentucky is...

    Looking for insurance/ advice for solo work

    Thank you for the reply. It’s great to have all the knowledge and support from good guys in the trade. I’m located in Ohio and probably should have stated that to start.

    Any recovering addicts here?

    It’s ok to be upset with yourself. We all get down at times. Depression is a bitch but it’s something that shows you can still feel. We all care about you enough to be here for support. You are worth it, I promise. I’ve been in the darkest and scariest of lows, near death and ready for it to...

    Any recovering addicts here?

    It’s a hard fight but you are definitely not alone. You’re strong enough to admit you have a problem and that means you are already in the right direction again. You can beat the urges. Fighting off a relapse is a intense battle, especially going at it alone, but all of us here I’m certain know...
