    First order of the day was to cut this blowdown up because I needed the weight in the truck for the second order of operation. Just gotta love my little ol' 359

    These two blowddowns were hung in another tree. I cut the top one off and then dragged it out for cutting.

    Batteries went dead so I couldn't get pics of dragging the second tree out. I know, pics or it didn't happen. Well, I am pretty sure it did happen because it was not there yesterday!:hmm3grin2orange:

    Nice load of wood and scenery. Saturday around here looked all white and frosty, yet it was not even cold out. I guess I am to blame for the lack of winter in the U.S.A. Last couple of years I have been preparing for it. I bought a used snowblower, a mini-bulldozer, two years ago a blaze king stove and cut lots of wood, and a duece and a half so I don't get stuck. Since I am now ready for snow I will never again see any to justify any of these purchases. Oh the shame of ruining winter for everyone. Well nice load of wood and charge the camera before you go next time lol

    No, Zog, it is all red oak. That is all I have in this woods. Red oak or pine. My guess is there are over two hundred blow down oaks in this woods. Plus all of the oak wilt killed trees. Bad for landowner, great for me!:msp_unsure:
    Every load I take out, the landowner says shoulda taken more!

    I take care to do a nice job of cleaning up behind myself. The landowner stopped by one day to tell me he liked how clean the woods is getting and that it looked like a park out there. So, I had a friend of mine who is a sign painter make me a sign that said "XXXX (landowners name) Park.
    Under that it says "Proudly maintained by Quicksdraw McSaw and Balsa Louie! lol

    He loves it!

    I ordered a quarter beef from him, and when it came time to pay for it, they would not take my money! Thats awesome!!

    I have to leave her at home, far too distracting! Probably explains why I only cut for about 15 minutes per trip, eh? :hmm3grin2orange:
