We drove from Yuma to Pinetop or from near sea level to above 7,000 feet elevation in around 8 hours. The temperature here in the daytime is not as warm as the over night low in Yuma. From ficus to pines, I am getting ready to scramble up this tree.
I climbed above my top rope and sat on a flip line to cut a large branch above my head.
Norm had expressed to me that there were no women “sawyers” and I mentioned it to Chris and he had two words for Norm, “Norm, chap up!”
Things are tough in the volunteer world of disaster relief, so Chris likes to start training new volunteers early!
