I've passed underneath it on an aircraft carrier nineteen times. It was trey cool.

 

Me too... my Dad was with me on tiger cruise in 1996... I told him that not many civilians get the chance to ride a Nuclear Powered Aircraft Carrier UNDER the Golden gate Bridge.

 

he thought that was pretty cool.:D

Did ya'll do the walk? At the bow, as the bridge passed overhead? That always felt strange...

 

Yeah... Dad thought it was pretty cool to just stay under the bridge as the ship kept goin'...:)

Here is a couple of pictures of some scrub oaks that are shaped into a kind of a cylinder with a rounded top. They are at a motel and we trim them every 6 months using a stihl hedge trimmer.

Just so you Brits don't think we are ignoring you here is a job we did about a month ago. This was a dead cypress tree. The wood looks huge and it was, but it wasn't very heavy as that wood is light anyway and being dead was even lighter.
