  1. Big Pine in NZ on a 45 degree from a bank hanging over live 11kv,no roping points or anything,had to shimmy up and dismantle it all over the lines while trying to keep my rope and all the branches from clashing the lines. Wasn't really that keen on it but had to be done.

    Be a sad day if my wife and nan were reading this forum! Not that i have anything against it but c'mon that's taking the piss. As long as posts don't breach the forum guidelines whats the problem.Everyone's so different with their own opinions there's no way you can not expect clashes etc.. its life. Obviously people take the piss quite often probably me included. I wish there was a section where we could call out all the non paying companies etc...especially when it has happened to numerous subbies! Guess this post will get flamed but that's my view.
  3. Nothing arb/forestry related in NZ is transferable to the UK,its all about making money,went through this whole thing nearly 7 years ago.Your cert in arb will be fine but you will still have to gain NPTC certs to work,although some companies will let you work with your NZ certs.

  16. Ahh mike mike mike,Its not a need but a requirement for most company's insurance in the UK.Every company i have worked for require the standard PPE to be used /worn on site. In the end if it stops me from hurting my self one day then yes you can call me a bell end! There you go i have taken the bait!
  17. My pfanner zermatts seem to be doing the trick,although to warm in the summer,amazing in the winter 100% waterproof, good enough to climb in as long as your not planning on entering any comps in them.Very comfortable and good on the ground.I wouldn't mind some airstreams for summer
