    Well I did it. I started on page one about a month ago and read every post. I learned an awful lot. Thanks to all for passing on their wisdom.

    Pretty nice day. About the best time of the year to work in the woods.

    Had a beauty day today finally after two months of rain and misery. Limbed and topped probably 50 or so trees this morning and then skidded about 20 or so. Then I hung one worse than I ever have before. I checked my hinge and gun after I cut myself out and it was pointed to the intended lay. Wind must have really took it I guess. I had to cripple the one it was hung in a bit (from the side opposite where the tree was hung in it) and then fall two others into it to get it out, too wet to get the loader near it and our cat has no cab at all so that’s an even faster way to die with no escape. Apparently when I screw up I can still do a real good job of it. Oh well, if you don’t make mistakes you’ve got nothing to learn from I guess.

    The unhappy cutting partner she doesn’t care for ground much over 20 degrees.

    Not so happy Halloween. Winter's in the air. At least the bees are done though.

    Overnight lows of -16*c forecast here this week Infinite. It is welcome for us, means we won’t have mud for a few months. Won’t have much daylight either but oh well, it’s a little give/take thing...

    That’s nuts I don’t think I’ve ever seen it that cold other then in Wyoming, where Idaho sucks and Kansas blows.

    Just a start for us. We are only starting to head into the deep freeze. Last Christmas we were working on our sawmill in -48. As long as it’s a dry cold it’s ok. You just move a little faster. Ha ha.

    Your weather reminds me of my years in High Level. We seem to be a bit warmer here in GP.

    That’s too funny Timber I’m out in Beaverlodge. We had a few days last winter that we’re that cold and we worked them at the mill because it was the only time off the regular jobs we had. Our mill is in a low spot north of Beaverlodge and it can be ten or more degrees colder down in there than in town at times.

    The winter is near :)
    We got our first snow a week ago, then it started to rain and we´re back to mud.

    I do some tree care work for the town. You do custom milling work? There are times when we might do a removal or two with some decent wood for milling.

    Yes you bet we are still setting up, bought a hydraulic mill last spring but we are running an old Belsaw until we get it up and running. We’d definitely appreciate any wood we can get, salvage isn’t easy to come by!

    Yeah, leaving and getting home in the dark sucks, especially only working faller's hours.

    Yeah when we are down to almost 6 hours of daylight it can be tough to prune or fall or even worse rig some trees out for removals. Especially having to clean up in the snow.

    I’m planning on falling in daylight and trying to skid and possibly mill at night this winter. Anything mechanical especially stuff out of the woods can get done in the dark. Every little bit helps.
