    Default Finally got a picture...

    ...of this badass doing some work. Ever few months he trims up the trees around the transmission line behind my office.

    Look closely and you can see him hanging out the window watching his blades. He got close enough to see me and wave when I gave him a thumbs up.

    Fellow that sold RotoBlade has a badass Freeman, I know that.
    Yeah, but do you consider a dog to be a filthy animal? I wouldn't go so far as to call a dog filthy but they're definitely dirty. But, a dog's got personality. Personality goes a long way.

    Cool shot. $20 says that joker wore a uniform and flew a helicopter for the military at some point in his career.

    How do those cutters work? What powers them?
    If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, give it Narcan.

    i watched one come down the power line at a place I was leasing and maneuver around the top of a deer stand I had up. Pretty nifty flying....
    Ugh. Stupid people piss me off.

    If I had it to do over, I would absolutely join the army with the sole focus of driving a Blackhawk.

    You sure it's rotor blade and not Aerial Solutions? I worked for AS right outta high school on the ground crew, the guy that owns AS pioneered that whole deal. That saw was badass back then and I'm sure it's advanced way beyond what it was. When I was there it was powered by a small Rotax engine and all belt driven. Went all over the place with those guys, from WV cutting in the mountains to swamps in LA. All those pilots are ex-military, and can fly those things damn near blindfolded. I LOVED flying, but those dudes can make you kiss the ground when you get out after a nap of the earth "fun" ride.

    The Patriot Act has made those folks a mint keeping transmission lines clear.
