    First World Cup memory..

    Yes I know what you mean. I watched the whole of the 1966 finals, remembering The Argentina team walking off 3/4's through the game. Eusebio scoring a penalty for Portugal in the semi and of coarse the final on a very small black and white TV in the lounge! I think that's definitely what got me into football. Oh well young team, see what we can do in the Euro's! Martyn

    The Evolution of the Arborist Climbing Harness

    My first harness was made by Barrow Hepburn the GT76. No leg loops and no padding, the only safety feature was if you could see red through the grey webbing, it had been strained! The harnesses where made in Battersea and where basically a copy of the USA climbing saddle. But did the job In the early seventies. Minimum order was only 100 a time. Martyn

    Mine was a Mac 6 not a bad saw for the seventies, no chainbrake but a good climbing saw for the times Martyn

    Tree work in Spain.

    I have brought back a few chainsaws, mainly top handle Stihl's, from Spain, when the pound was at a good rate! I just put them in my large suitcase, but these where new and always insisted that the dealer didn't run them before hand and leave them in the box. Not sure you would get away with that with used machines. Have you thought about driving? Martyn
