    On Saddle Blood Stopper Pouch

    Great advice. I was thinking about buying a second one to open and practice with but your advice about not having to open the package never crossed my mind. Thank you.

    On Saddle Blood Stopper Pouch

    This might be a little off topic but, does anyone have an easy way to lanyard off the tourniquet pouch so if you fumble it taking it out of the pouch it doesnt drop to the ground? I was thinking some packaging tape and some light cord...

    Rooster next door

    I dont think I could live next to a rooster. ATH brings up a very good point, what value does it add? My vote it no, thats why they must ask for permission because its a stupid idea. If you lived in a rural area like I do and they didnt need to ask for permission then it would be out of your...

    Power Lines on One Side / Safe to Climb Away From Wires?

    LOL! Thanks for the laugh. Luckily this is out near the curb in the front yard and not out back. There are 2 service drops coming from the pole next to the tree. Between the drops and the regular lines, I'm sure the guy is going to be shooting salad all over.

    Would you climb this angry tree?

    That is one mean beech. Better watch your back.

    Power Lines on One Side / Safe to Climb Away From Wires?

    Same here in NY. If there's com lines with no power, those things could have a 5" diameter branch laying on them for 6 years and never be cleared. God forbid I hit it with a backhoe though.

    Power Lines on One Side / Safe to Climb Away From Wires?

    Thanks again for the advice @Jehinten. I called the utility today and they said the home owner needs to call and they will open a ticket to top the tree to a safe distance. All material they cut stays on the property but they will bring it down to below the line. This is a win for the customer...

    Power Lines on One Side / Safe to Climb Away From Wires?

    Mutually exclusive in my opinion. You can be one and not the other. I guess it depends on your market, business goals, professional aspiration.

    Power Lines on One Side / Safe to Climb Away From Wires?

    Thank you, I will remember that. I may even call the utility myself to discuss with them. They would probably appreciate it if I provoded a pole number too.

    Power Lines on One Side / Safe to Climb Away From Wires?

    That noise is called "corona". Its the surrounding air becoming ionized and discharging like static. It's common on high voltage and especially audible on >100kV. Good read here gents and thanks for sharing your knowledge as well as some of the ANSI guidelines. I had a recent client ask me for...

    Thoughts on Minimum Pricing for Small Jobs

    This ^ I have a tiny operation but still tell people my minimum is $200 for a tree that can be walked up to, cut and walk away. Its price of admission really. I recently did a cut and walk for a guy that was $600. It was a dirty rotton SOB though. It was 3ft on the stump, had a wound from...

    Rope Wrench - Hitch/Rope compendium.

    I've been noticing the Michoacan hasn't been tending nicely. I think I'm going wash my hitch cord and see if that make a difference. It was being so problematic I tied a Distel and it resolved the problem. Anyone have a similar experience with the 9mm RIT cord or the Michoacan?

    harness bridge forces from multiple rings?

    I havent read the replies yet but, rhe first distinction worth noting is that the death triangle is very different than what you have drawn because your setup does not have the third leg of the triangle. This causes the resultant vector force at your anchor to be parallel with the direction of...

    to steel core or not to steel core

    For what its worth, (I've only been climbing a little while) I cant imagine fighting a blake's to adjust my lanyard like you are. I use a log rope lanyard, a prusik, 2 beaners and a micro pully to tend the slack. Fighting with nonsense wears me out by the end of the day. The saying, "just...
