Quoting Ossqss:Ya think? The bugs of the future could be different. As long as they don't mess with the NFL Sunday ticket, I don't really care :-)Live and learn, just about every week, no?.......
Quoting auburn:yep me too..but my 12yo gets it with ease..haha
Quoting Ossqss:Stuff to consider, Gnitght :-)>
Quoting theshepherd:So, halfway up the giant hickory tree I notice some honey bees coming out of a hollow that was hidden by a thick growth of water shoots.Not being able to speak "honey bee" and assure them I meant them no harm, I rappelled back down to "ponder" the situation.Do I exterminate the bees?No.Do I leave the limb in the way of my satellite signal path?No.I decided to cut the whole tree down and let the bees move their nest. Which they are working on doing.Yeah, I know. Sheph murdered a gorgeous tree. But, the fact of the matter is if you cut one old hickory near the end of it's life, 10 will take it's place. Kinda like killing big spiders, eh?My brother-in-law, who is an x-CB from the Nam days asked me what kind of knot was that around my climbing rope that I had tied from my Swiss Seat that I had thrown together from a piece of boat dock line. I told him it was a Prussic knot. "Ya should have learned that in Basic", I told him. He said "no, and he wasn't in Boy Scouts either". :)I'm "sure" Ranger Rick remembers, eh?
Quoting RTLSNK:MORNING SHEP, YEAH WE CERTAINLY WOULD NOT WANT TO WAKEROB UP SO EARLY IN THE MORNING, HEH HEH HEH, ^_^Oh, sorry, caps lock again, should I spray that buttonwith WD-40 or Graphite? Maybe 3 in 1 oil would work.
Quoting Ylee:Shep, now that the tree is down, just think of all the BBQ you can do! :)
Quoting RTLSNK:Indeed, the triple sliding hitch, great rope climbing tool also. You make one for each foot and one for your waist. Great for lugging a heavy pack up a mountain also.
