    Good Morning check in

    I have it set in vertical almost all of the time as I sit on a stump and split my wood when working alone. My neighbor is younger with a better back than mine. He lifts the bigger pieces or we use hay hooks to lift still bigger ones together. Anything we can't lift together we split vertically.

I did noodle a few of them down so as to not drop a nut when handling them. The others, my neighbor...

    Years ago I was on my way to work when I spotted 3 large bucks along the edge of my field. They turned into the logging road that goes into my woods and they were gone. That afternoon, after work, I followed the road into the woods to see where they went. When I got to my 3d Buck I found where...

    Good morning all, 28 and cloudy with 30 mph gusty winds. Animals are fed and watered, bipeds fed and social distancing today. This is easy, nobody comes around here anyways.
