View From the Slough, Too
The Art and Science of Branch Assist
I originally wrote this article back in 2001, and hundred of people read it on CADO, but at some point the link to the article became bad. So, for years I have not even been able to access it. I thought the article was lost for good until I recently discovered it on an old backup data disk. Because the conditions in catadjusting in 2001 and 2007 are so similar, I thought it would be a good time to update and revise the article to make it more current and to repost it on CADO. I know there is a danger of sharing too many secrets about how to get by in this business, especially when so many thousands have been added to our ranks with the storms of 2004 and 2005. But it is mainly those with experience and knowledge that will be able to benefit from this information. And I have always been willing to help those who deserve to be helped.
