Great video, Ben. It's always interesting to see what you do to prevent euc branches from slipping out of rigging.

@chiselbit @rico @colb @RopeShield
As a group directed comment-
Thankyou very much guys,
I have been absent from Treebuzz for some time now ..
between building my business and slowly transferring from being a full time contract climber to more of a company but still doing contract climb work
and building my own home off grid from scratch ( roads and drains take up a lot of my time ).
I would like you all to know that I appreciate your friendship both professional and personal.

And I have seen things Gentleman ..

Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion
Seebees glittering at the TenHouser Gate.....

18n years now I have humped rope, swung saws, breathed in dust whilst spitting back fire.
short of Helicopter work and setting explosive charges there isn't much else in my bucket list
besides climbing even higher or doing more dead diseased snot ridden shit sticks for roughly the same money I make now ,
So I now pause to take stock and ponder what is to come-
I promised a post called Headology several years back now ,
A man is only as good as his word but by his deeds we judge him.

I will return.

Ben.

Right on Ben. I think that’s one of your best videos so far. I really enjoyed watching it.
Thankyou very much Dan
I struggled with keeping that video coherent as a story line yet not so long as to be boring by the end.
unfortunately I don't really feel that I achieved either.
consulted with JBGrandWazoo who shared that any video over 10 minutes was prone to switching off the viewer and I agree with a few exceptions my video making goal is to keep em short and sweet.
I'm happy to hear I was able to keep you watching for the full stretch .

Thankyou Colb,
funny you should mention that because the first branch on the third day slipped out of the clove hitch , it was a wee thing so my best guess is that it didn't have enough weight to close the hitch tightly enough .
no one was hurt and no damage was caused but it does go to show that not all goes to plan even for the more experienced amongst us.

stay humble or have it thrust right up the pie hole ..
it's what has got me thus far.

Tree expulsion specialists realize how to deal with this kind of circumstance.
You need to expulse that shit, Ben. You've been removing this whole time - 18 years! Think of it! We should have been expulsing, with shears, like they do in "Ottawa" and the rest of Canada... :LOL:

@CanadianStan has fact checked this, right Stan?

Hmm - new one on me - I would have expected nothing less from the Hedge king but that may be a shortsighted comment speaking out of ignorance because I rate Hedge guys in the same category as landscapers ...

which reminds me I got to call a landscaper about a tree job he wants done next week.

Here is where I do most of my expulsions lately..
just plumbed in the sink for the washing of the hands .
I personally reckon it is the best thunder box this side of the black stump myself.

This is OGX2 - Off grid original gangsta. @JeffGu will be by shortly to embellish. I can think of a dozen shitty puns, but I'm really just envious of the craftsmanship. This is where Quick Mike deserved to die in the movie Unforgiven.

Well, @Hedgeking, whose profile notes that they are from Ottawa, notes that we should be expulsing trees, as noted in their post that I quoted. I guess I just assumed that you were in close touch with them - I mean all Canadians know each other, right? There's not that many of you... - and had approved that terminology collaboratively... :LOL: Hey, I've got to go pick up my son for COVID-19 internet school. See ya suckers, and have a great day!

I see you've added a font for the Holy Water, to cleanse your sacramental offerings before returning them to the earth and clay, from whence they came. Your cries of "Holy shit!" and "Get thee back, Satan!" coming from your little shrine must alarm the tourists a bit. You need a bottle of coconut oil, to annoint your bum during the ceremonies. Also, some corn cobs. Red ones and white ones. You use a red one, then a white one to see if you need another red one. Other than that, all appears in order. Not an architectural masterpiece, but serviceable.
