Anyone else?



Been giving the log splitter a workout. My parents had a couple large trees dropped. Been cutting and splitting like a mad man. Still have a bunch to do. Heck, I'm still working on trees that came down in the ice storm we had.

Well just kick me in the shin why don't you. You just wait, they're predicting a colder than normal winter and you may even need a pair of gloves.

My father picked up one of those JawSaws and is going to town with it. He's been reducing a pile of branches to kindling for me. I took my yard trailer over there today and started loading it up. If the weather stays decent I'll bring it back over here and unload it tomorrow then take it back for a refill.

I just like having a backup plan in case we lose power. We will still be able to take the chill off if need be. Just something about being self sufficient that is rewarding. Not having to depend on anyone else.

Was out tweaking the woodshed today. Built a kindling wood box and some shelves to keep all my lumberjack stuff on. Ahhhh......I can feel the warmth of the fire already.

I wear a 30lb. tool belt Mon.-Fri. Not wearing one on the weekend. I also do all my lumberjack work on the ground. I have no business up in a tree. That's why you don't see any rope or climbing gear.

And they're forecasting a low of 38 degrees tonight. My wood stove won't be ready until the middle of the week.
