    Why was MasterBlaster banned? I forget...

    [ QUOTE ] This whole thread is so 2007...or was it 2006? [/ QUOTE ] Ha! No joke! Drama baby, drama. It is just the internet.

    Texas comp

    Sounds like a blast! I won't be climbing this year as I have moved on to more intense recreational addictions that get my arse further from the ground. Plan on stopping by and lending moral support.

    Dynamic cabling

    [ QUOTE ] How about Guardian? [/ QUOTE ] Unfortunately, after looking at the Guardian, it shows that it isn't dynamic, it is non-static

    Dynamic cabling

    [ QUOTE ] Why dynamic? [/ QUOTE ] Because dynamic like the Gefa takes all of 10 minutes to install and it isn't invasive. Plus I don't have something failing, I just have a dynamic situation I want to keep dynamic....but with security for the target. I'll google gaurdian.

    Dynamic cabling

    Howdy tree folk! I am curious what is out there for dynamic cabling? From which vendors? I am NOT a fan of cobra. Really what I am looking for is this stuff as I have installed miles of it but can't find it in the US. It doesn't have the shock absorbers like cobra or the hassles that...

    Where did you go to school?

    Texas A&M Forestry You have to be able to do the job to get top money as a climber, but a degree is great. It opens a lot of doors. Plus, if you get tired of climbing for a living and want to pull down more $$$$$, you have options if you have a degree. If not, you are stuck where the...

    What makes a good foreman?

    I agree with Tom. Gotta make that step away from the enlisted men. It is a lonely place. Don't get too focused on all that excellence in tree care tripe - blessed is he who expects little - you'll learn to be happy if everyone shows up for work (and they're sober).

    Salespeople I need your advice!!!

    [ QUOTE ] It's always good to hear sales arborists say they aren't in it for the money. [/ QUOTE ] That is cool and all if it is a hobby. Other than that, I don't know about you lads, but I leave the house in the mornings to go sell for one thing....$$$$ Winter coming on, I would push...

    Door knockers in Oz caught in Channel 9 sting

    Yeah, but this guy had a company shirt didn't he? A truck nicer than Ek's? How do you know he wasn't insured? So he asked for a cashie - what treeman doesn't like the odd cashie instead of the invoice and wait for a check in the mail. If the old dear can't properly manage money, she needs to...

    license/permits to do hurricane relief work Texas

    How are the folks doing working down there? I was there on Friday. The cream has been skimmed. Seems a climber can only earn a few hundred an hour for the 1st few days after a storm. Climbing for a few benjamins a day isn't worth it for me. My cousin was getting quotes for a leaning (not...

    Boy, 10, killed as dad cuts tree threatened by Ike

    A 9 yr old girl was also killed plus 2 homeowners. That was just Sunday, Monday, Tuesday. I wonder how many have been to the ER. I saw some really stoopid stuff going on there. Heck, I was the only tree guy I saw with a helmet. People don't climb up the poles and try to hook up the...
