    Looks like we're good to go for Sunday. All the regulars from the shop should make it. Roll call for others????

    Planning on it. But I'll check here and the weather first before leaving (a little before 5 am).

    A very successful trip to Denny's yesterday. Except for a hydraulic hose on the skiddy and a few elevator glitches we processed alot of wood.
    Not sure when we will get together again but there is much more wood on the ground now than last year.

    Denny and Barb both have doctor appointments this week so keep them in your thoughts and prayers.

    Pictures from Sunday 5/4/19.

    Progress after about 2-3 hours work. There were 2 piles about the same size as the one under the elevator on the right that had already been stacked at the beginning of the day while waiting for the hydraulic hose to get repaired.

    DSCN0034[1].JPG

    The piles by lunchtime.

    Lunch from Gary's Cafe in Siren.

    Back at it again after lunch.

    And right before we were done one elevator decides to break down.

    The crew from the Siren Lions Club reached out to the Dresser Lions and said that they will be putting together a crew to go to Denny's on June 22nd. May be a chance for those who can't make a Sunday cut to join us on Saturday June 22nd.

    I'm gonna miss this one, got a prior commitment. I still have that part for the elevator sitting on my workbench. I haven't fixed it yet. I though I had all summer before it would be needed. I hope that doesn't jam you guys up.

    We worked off the ground on Saturday. One of the church groups started hand cutting on the fresh log piles and we split what they had cut after they left.

    I'm in the process of making a play on a like new Timberwolf belt drive hydraulic driven elevator-price TBD>

    Elevator score! Got a smoking deal on the Timberwolf conveyor. Should work well for getting split wood closer to the stacking areas. Should also work well for loading the dump trailers!

    If one of you folks can pounce on it I will help fix it up. Either resell with profits to denny, or keep it there to use. Or, it may be a piece of junk.....

    With Labor Day in the rearview mirror and the weather cooling off it's time to "work the woodpile" again. How does Sunday Sept 22nd fit into every ones schedule?
