Yuma, day 5…

This is Chris, our fearless leader. We refer to Chris, with all affection, as “The Tree Whisperer.” As you can see from this photo, an expert rope climber and rigger along with the ability to use a chain saw with surgical procession. The photo below, is well, the exact opposite.

“Uh, which way does the rabbit go, or no, he comes up through the hole?” Yeah, right.

Chris used five ropes, one rope was an inch thick! One of those ropes on the ground was tied to my truck and I put all 650 foot pounds of torque to the pavement. As my tires finally broke traction and started to smoke, the tree came away from the house. We did all that just to have Chris cut it off and make it fall right where he wanted, the Tree Whisperer.

The finished product.

We live and travel full time in our fifth wheel or cargo trailer. We work for the Lord Jesus Christ in Disaster Relief Ministry. When not doing any of the above we try to have as much fun as we can. Possible items you might find here, in no particular order, dirt bikes, quads, hiking, camping, desert living, building projects, stained glass projects, our family, Bible study, RVing stuff, nutrition comments, and just about anything else we can think of....
