  2. What's wrong with red bull ? I like it [emoji6]
  3. Knocking a decent size tree down then watching machines do all the clean up [emoji4]
  4. In 18 years of contract climbing I have never turned up to a job and refused to climb the tree or trees I have turned up and changed the plan of works possibly felling or the tree cant be rigged cos of it been dead for so long or possibly said we need some sort of hydrolic assistance crane such like ! I have always since I first wanted to climb never wanted to be the man that says no I wanted to be a problem solver not a problem creator that's my view on why I'm there to solve getting that tree or trees down as efficiently and safely as possible I have a couple of times had to think of the sherbrook dead tree video above the sky walk as a bit motivation if Graham can do that I can certainly get my arse up some poxy 80ft dead tree in England 🤣
  5. Did a ash tree this week in some pretty band winds plenty of targets some big wood and some very long extended heavy limbs i did half the tree and for a change some one els climbed in the afternoon what a refreshing change to not have to do it all [emoji4]
  6. I relate to this 100% Is there any solution than just been up a tree every day ? I've had the day off today instead of enjoying the day I just cant help feeling if I was working I'd be in a better mood
