  1. 😂 Sorry Jamie, as you were! I’ve got PlantSnap, which has proved golden on a few occasions, but has then failed to identify Blackberry and Hornbeam! I had some decent knot apps, but they never seem to last long before being deleted. Vivino is worth getting, fine arbs are like fine wine, improving with age until we are corked!
  2. Not easy slipping them past you Mr. J!
  3. It’s like chicken tikka, but ‘otter.
  4. For everyone. And cold beers for everyone after work. (Champagne for the climbers).
  5. Haha, good lad! Sense of humour always helps.
  6. Pete Donetelli was a co-author. He died in a rigging accident! Good book, like. No one will be interested in a new guys input on rigging, though. Driving, towing, reliability and willingness to graft are the foot in the door attributes. As is looking after the kit and staying off your phone.
  7. Lose the pine for a start, you can’t reduce them meaningfully.
  8. Deep fat fryers were invented for a reason.
  9. If you’re needing chains to feed a gravity fed 3” chipper you will be long dead by the time you’ve done a reel. That’s not a dig, it’s a fact. Even if all your saws run 3/8, including your top handles (?).
  10. PL on it’s own (for solo stuff) is peanuts. It’s a pikey move not having it.
