Re: OT: Building in isolated location

spro-- Your reason was my reason: I didn't want that tall pine falling on the just completed roof decking! (It would not have hurt the concrete walls.) I used a mix of DOT 70 and DOT 80 chain out to 120 feet. So, I was a long way from the top of the 75 foot (more or less) pine when it headed my way....

Re: OT: Building in isolated location

All-- Toppling tress is always a lot of fun . . . until it's not. The tall pine in this video turned into a lot of work in the hot sun. I tried to topple it. No give (at the ground level). Using the backhoe, I dug around and broke roots. No soap. Dug more. Nothing. Dug More. Still nothing. Dug MORE....

Re: Machinist-Specific Cell Phone Problem

atunguyd and All--

Nothing I've written, despite my best efforts, is close to funny. Nothing SteveHGraham has written is close to funny. But that joke that atunguyd wrote IS close to funny. Therefore, I hereby declare it off topic.

Steve--
I must admit; on certain days I have endangered my safety with as many as TWO delicious beers.

So you don't drink Bud Light?

Bill--

How does Bud Light perform as a lubricant/coolant on aluminum? A friend of mine uses Busch Light (not on machines). I might try some of that, since I believe it is even cheaper than Bud Light.

Re: OT: Building in isolated location

Glenn-- The viewer has the ability to speed up or slow down the video using the "SPEED" selection under the settings icon (looks like a gear and is in the lower right corner) in YouTube. Gives you ranges from 1/4 speed to double speed, so the video you posted can be viewed in pretty much n...

"DTH?" I thought that was floral company.

That's my answer and I'm sticking to it. :(

Here are some grainy pictures my brother took of the rig. Do they tell you anything?

Bill--

Do their territories overlap? My feeder is on the western boundary of our property. The build site is a half mile away on the eastern boundary. I am wondering if there may be more bears in or around "his" territory.

Re: OT: Building in isolated location

BIll-- Great picture! I will definitely cross check whatever I learn from the locals about the bears with you. My little brother lives about 7 miles away in the same type of area (it's all heavily wooded and hilly) and has never seen a bear. When I showed some of the pictures around at the trout res...
