  1. let le tell you guys, about this crew where the boss says no lunch break anymore, 8hs long day and guess they just complied. I pay my crew per hour...2 hs of work 10ms break, lunch 1/2h break. After knowing what the previously mentioned crew takes, my crew started being payed for luch,😁
  2. from all I heard this seeems th emost logicak [email protected] Thompson
  3. will try a different tether and let you now
  4. My srt combo zigzag with rw with a 27cm tether gives me a lot of sitback when after ascending; you try to descend. Is this due to the lenght of the tether? In the petzl combo zz plus chicane, the lenght of tether seems to be around 15cms max?
  5. in southern europe sometimes over 40 cs, drink water, salt, sugar/honey, lemon.Dont touch isotonics as they are full of shit and dehidrate more then the opposite. Use f50 uv longsleeves, not sunscreen. I passed out twice on the canopy was not fun, but one learns to avoid it.
  6. some time ago cut a Ficus carica, got splashed with some sap, it was cloudy. Next day some spots and itchy, learned about photodermatitis, burns activated by sun light, it was not nice
  7. @Paul Cleaver the collapsed side is facing south only. When summer arrives that spot get 40ºc, i expected severe dry burning of all possible growing nodules, also the age of the tree plays big part in its development and they are reluctant in producing new leaves at the center, at least in this hot environment. But I do believe there are a few more 100's of life in it
  8. @Mr. Squirrel just enough reduction to keep council workers and phone line crews away from it, as the tree had some branches within their reach😁
  9. during first inspection on my propping
  10. living in southern europe, average 30c degrees, coolest trousers ever is Sip Samourai red color
  11. so I think I am a tree man cause there was lots of joy in the end from not killing it, more pleasure then any huge tree being rigged with complex techniques. A few centuries more of standing, more pics will come when desert sands finish and sunlight returns.
  12. here is a before and after, a ugly twisted, wraped around another tree pine, with electric cable under( red line)
  13. coffee. The most consumed drug in Portugal.I am an addict😄

  15. Thread tittle as a wrong name in Flow should be Control. So got another Petzl rope this time is Flow 1.6mm and as bad as the previous, 1 first meter is very bumpy. My splice seems way better then Petzl, tighter eye, which hasn't moved, changed or deformed after 5month use, just a bit to big for passin the ZZ. I am very happy and will do it again, when used enough I going to cut open my splice to compare with Petzl's
