    I'd at least move the clothes dresser and the kitchen stove inside. Must be real fun getting dressed or cooking supper outside at -40*!

    I think at -40 I'd be inside cooking over of the wood burning stove.

    I'm thinking inside space of the shack is at a premium with the roof & yard storage of dead chainsaws.

    Even have electricity out there? FANNNN-SEEEE!

    Haha. I called an outfit some years back to order a part for a truck. Was all good I thought.
    He calls me back a bit later... "hey, AK is coming up as Alaska, it's supposed to be Arkansas right. No one would need truck parts in Alaska!?"

    Dude seriously thought we all live in igloos, drive dogs around and eat whales.

    Could a mod kindly change the title of said thread?
    Should read as follows: Me and my Woodtick.

    While walking into the bush the other day there was a large grizzly bear laying on the skid trail licking his balls.
    My partner said, “Boy, I sure wish I could do that!”
    I said, “Don’t you think you should pet him first?”

    I don’t care what anybody says, but so glad I’ve made a career as a leaf kisser and tree hugger these past 40 years. It’s all about passion and staying small so you can keep it all.
    It’s all about being the best logger and the best person you can be.
    This only comes with a little bit of help from your friends.

    Has anybody noticed how mature and eloquent I’ve become at sixtysex?
    I seem to like trees for some unknown reason.
    Trees are like people, the trick is never become to attached. Can’t we get the idea we can’t put a dent in the bush and that trees are just glorified blades of grass?

    It also has a lot to do with girl power. Girls like to get into a male dominated profession and it’s a pleasure when they can beat us at our own game.
