Great pics Brett I was was talking this morning to a couple from Grand Rapids Michigan small world my friendThat would probably kill me with my asthma .
Story time; back about 20yrs ago a buddy was over and says you mow all that, I'm like yeah , he's like , it was poison sumac. Not only was I mowing it, but I was weedwacking a lot of it, sometimes it took me a week to recover from "mowing" so I thought .
My neighbor bagged all this up and threw it out back at his place, some of it was 3+" .
I put the logs in a pile and will either cut some into boards or buck them into rounds for firewood. The bark will be off it by the time it gets in the house a couple yrs from now so I'm not concerned with burning it, but it's certainly something to remember, Thanks.
Here's what I did today, this is about a 10th of what I have to do yet, but the rest will wait.

In these States we can ferment up to 200 gallons a year without the Federal tax stamps. Check on how much of the Aussie cost is tax. May be a large part of the prices you pay down under.I can’t believe how much we get ripped off for alcohol in Australia and I know it’s cheaper in the lower 48
Thanks BL.hi chipper. you have my respectful sympathy, pal! totally disruptive is my take on all that up there on your place. i hate it when such happens. tens of thousands got it here when Harvey rolled thru. life is busy enough, and just when u wonder where oh where, will i get the time to do that?? then something like all u have to deal with happens. but as we know, chit happens! usually, never at a convenient time.
the kids on the east coast called other day... a/c just went out! 'ouch' and hot. 2 days later they get a service guy over. i said, tell 'em to get ready to shell out $15K!! dual zone, two story. new a/c! but, luck of sorts was on their side... merely a capacitor. bill: $200. loose that R-22 and no doubt a dif ending...
take care chipper, don't work too hard. hope u can get some help, maybe.
For sure .Thanks my friend - and yes, it is a Volvo. It is almost new, only 25 years old.
I have been home for a while now, and time for some .
Good evening Tony.Brett, I've done more checking on the air dry of Sycamore and found that twist is common. Best static dry results are from quarter sawn cuts. So the next will be fat in hope's of a mantle buyer showing up who wants wider than the 9 1/2" maple for a mantle. Sycamore has a lotta water weight, loses 17# a cubic foot in drying to 10% if the stats are right on the two places that was used for comparison.
I'd forgotten how calming the acts of milling are for me tho.
Hope Ya'll had a good one
No way, did you get a picture of them .Great pics Brett I was was talking this morning to a couple from Grand Rapids Michigan small world my friend
Nice picture, liking that ride are you.
So you moving to the mainland .I can’t believe how much we get ripped off for alcohol in Australia and I know it’s cheaper in the lower 48
thanks for your thots... I remember running out of gasoline a couple of times while out on my '71 650... always nice to just turn on the reserve and keep putting down the road.Like the filters, but one side or the other is you reserve, the other has an extension tube for normal use. I turn both sides on when first starting to get the fuel in the carbs, fast, then turn the right side ( reserve ) off. I’m good for around 20 miles on reserve. Nice work on the old girl, they are a blast to ride, and get WAY more looks and compliments than any Harley.
