Yo Buddy!

Depending on the traffic, less than two hours - 108 miles NE.

Depending on when we want to get together, we will put together a PLAN so all can stay at the guest house (10 bedrooms) at Four Winds Peace Center. The Center is currently in hiatus ATM.   

Personally, we want this to take place this year - August or September seems about right for lead time...   

Aside from rejoicing in person, what might be the agenda for such a meeting?

Looking at the scenery?   



For me I would l like to have the opertunity to be with a group of people that come to value :-[

That late in the year my familay will not be able to come.

To my surprise my wife said I can go solo for a weekend ;D

As the details develope let me know. I am 8 hr away.

Thank you for your kind words.

No one, no shyster mortgage company,
nor any government entity
will ever deny me of my home.



We enjoy a dozen chainsaws - all Stihl - ranging from three 192 climbing saws - 12" and 14" (and two MS-200's climbing saws with 16" bars), to the beefed 660 with a 32" bar and a full chisel skip-tooth chain. (The longer bars tend to negatively weight the saw, so 32" is the right choice.)

We have not run into anything that we cannot cut with on-hand equipment (5-foot diameter trees are toast).   :P

My personal favorite is my 'beefed' 192 with a 14" inch narrow kerf bar and a 'Georgia skip-tooth' full-chisel chain.  :P

Light it up and hang on!

Once upon a time,
there once was a Bug
that gnawed on a tree...
but, that’s another story.





Bug out!




So, when we are away from the keyboard -
and our 'other' life 'here' takes precedence -
we are engaged in the tree business.

As volunteer firefighters/first responders,
we already specifically respond to trees on houses
during times of national disasters, i.e. hurricanes, tornados, etc.

Sometimes, you just get plain lucky and have
disaster relief work 'delivered by providence'
to your locale (with no injuries) ...
and a paying job, to boot (pun).   ;D




This story is about a few trees on a client/friend’s house

caused by a localized microburst (of course, HAARP-induced,
trying to vaporize AmaterasuSolar, thorfourwinds and the Rabun Mothership at one time)  ...

HA HA... missed Amy by about 3,000 feet, and the Mothership by 5 miles...
of course, the plasma neutralizers were on, as always.
 since 911. Now, where did we put the spare cloudbusters?   ::)

Better luck next time, fools.   :P






Looking at the onslaught from the lower deck.






Looking at the intruders from 100 feet down valley.






Looking across the roof at tree limbs impacting the window and roof from the top deck outside rail.






Looking across roof after initial cut-up to discern stability and damage.






Pine bridged on roof with Capt. Tim Shankle (my partner) looking on.






Another look at the trees on roof.






Looking down valley towards start of tree progression to fall on house.






After initial removal, the really dangerous ones are the ones bridged into other trees, causing them to lean towards the house.






The roof damage from below.






This is the piece of the 4-inch by 12-inch timber that the tree broke






This is the base of the original large oak that fell in the storm and dominoed 4 other trees to put 3 trees on the house.   :P






Looking from the valley uphill towards house and following the fall line.






Looking up the 120’ x 30" base pine that did the damage.






Looking toward house one tree back from target pine.






Looking back toward valley from left side 100 feet below house after brush and limbs cleared.






Looking up valley towards house from 3 trees back after clearing limbs and brush.






Looking down hill from right side.






Looking downhill after clearing from left side.






That magnificent stout woody sticking up like an erect .....errrr, pine log is 26” top x 37’  (two 18’6” logs)


All wood products available for delivery,
anytime, anywhere... for a price.



"Have wood, Will Travel"
wire thorfourwinds@thelivingmoon.com



Yup.

We removed them thar trees.

That's what we do to make a living until the Abundance Paridigm kicks into high gear.   :P

Or someone recognizes and makes use of the multiple other talents offered by TEAM RABUN.   :o

Interested parties can find our references in the Inventor's Forum.

How's that for a segue, Luke?    8)





Got trees?

Hey Thor

How ironic that this thread shows up today. I was telling my Brother in law about your place just hours ago at our family renunion. I was wondering if any plans have been made yet for a get together. Ifit is not top secret and I am not invited. :-X I would love to get some readings in the mountains. What is your altitude?

My brother in law was asking how is the fishing. He got a 3 1/2 lb bass at mom and dads lake today.

thor, my brother, somehow I missed that line in the OP about being able to will the rebar into the ground????  :o

by the way, do you have a running stream on your estate? just curious, for if you do we need to discuss setting up a power generation system for team Rabun; relatively low-tech, medium maintenance, but high amp output...

keep us advised on a projected date for the meeting...

Greetings Brother Seeker:

A very small stream at the Mothership - a very big stream (small river) at Four Winds Peace Center that is highly applicable for micro-hydro.    ;)

We are working on securing the Center for a conference.

We are working on securing a micro-hydro site at Four Winds.

When waiting is filled...

THOR you need to install a RAM pump ;) we had one where i was bought up I loved the "ka pump" noise it made from the ram house down near the stream/spring up the pipe to the reservoir.

what a cool invention yet so bloody simple. now if you cannot harness one of those for power there must be something very wrong.it's a no brainer.just a thought buddy.

nice work on the tree felling ;) there just aint the roots to keep them things in the ground pal.
still some nice timber or logs.looks like it could do with thinning out.

I had to look up the word Segue LOL :P

I see a fortune in natural outdoor furniture there TFW!! We have a local man that takes your old fallen trees here in SF, SD and turns it into some very high end Picnic and lounging furniture. It is created as he see's fit for what it exemplifies from it's natural state.

Though a bit time consuming for the creation of such relaxing lounge furniture, I have seen sets of his go for more than $5,000 USD, so may be something to think about. Heck, you have all the materials already at your finger tips!! ;)

Either way, I envy your place of residence, I can only dream of living in such tranquil beauty, can see why you have such a compassion for your beloved Rabun, I too would never want to leave it either.
