    This job was a complete disaster. The woman H/O got directly in my way while pulling multiple times weeding her beds...Nice place but hey come on..

    Had the little machine, and cause the boss rushed us I forgot to pull 2 pipes and a wire...Very tight areas. so I had to pull a second pipe over the top of the pipe..First time I have ever done this with particular placement of the pipe 4 or so inches above main and wire..This could of been a complete disaster..

    Second zone line pull over main, Tough to tell but its the closest pipe to the machine.

    Her male counter part also or even more bothersome

    After all these years of doing drip, I never realized this could be done..Feel really dumb but hey.. I'm not ashamed of learning something easy or hard..

    This guy has a dam ornamental tree farm at his proptery..I think there is over 10" DBH on all of the ten or so Jap maples planted less than a year ago.. guy has some serious money

    I was being lazy grabbing some drip..Strangely i always have my wire strippers handy.. Yes, we tied drip into rotor zones...Not a fan of it but my opinion matters little.

    The guy is so rich he made his own pond and stocks it with 60 K of coy every few months..The snapping turtles and birds really enjoy the fish.. And he just doesen't care. We also pruned over 500 pitch pines here a few years ago during a winter.. Actually i pruned one PP seen in this picture.

    I poorly explain things Gm

    I've jumped pipes across eachother before
    But I've never ran 2 pipes a lOng distance on top of each other..

    Parallel. I thought for sure I'd hook the main and wire at some point. I think the pull was 150 feet or so

    Peter cat litter box is for trash

    I'm sorry but I'm just not okay with that. Pickle buckets yes. Why would you advertise to the world you have a cat?
