    Hey Bill!
    yer saw is safe in my shed, Aaron and I didn't have both oars in the water that Sunday.
    it was Nate's fault and Bob's and maybe Johnnies.

    I agree Randy. Definitely Nate's fault. Certainly Johnnie W. and Balvenie too.

    Bob, BigBadBob, Kevin, and T are also to blame......along with Mark (Makers).

    OK guys and gals we are less than 2 months out from the GTG. Tyler are we good to go re camping spots and jobs and are you providing food. I assume you will want a head count about 4 weeks out? Is the chipper running or will there be a rental? How is the project area from last year around the water tank looking?

    I will be offering up a raffle prize this year with the proceeds going to help pay for food. The prize will be an excellent Stihl 050! I am keeping the nearly new bar and chain and the clutch cover, sorry. The saw will likely need a carb kit and tune up. It may need other minor parts like a recoil/tank assembly. Maybe a spark plug. Definitely a piston and cylinder. Oh bearings too. Maybe crank cases. The front handle bar and muffler are in great shape! Oh and it is missing the air filter and top cover.

    Tyler please arrange the weather so we have warm sun all weekend. Not too hot, not too cold.

    2 months, cant wait! I am buying a ton of raffle tickets to ensure i win that 050! How thoughtful of you to donate it to our cause.
    Food is covered, probably the sameold menu unless someone has a problem with that. Seriously we are open to requests.
    Water tanks; the area looks exactly the same as we left it with browner needles. I didnt get to it at all. This is a hazard tree year so felling will take priority but it would be nice to touch up the water tank area. Chip, cut and scatter, and just get the water line area clear and any hung/offthe ground wood taken care of. We will be renting chipper again, maybe just one day though, ill see how it goes.
    Weather: ill do my best, it has been absolutely beautiful lately which probably means it will be frosty and cold maybe rainy in November. That wont matter to our pnw friends but everyone else, pack warm. See you all soon, a head count would be nice a month or so out...

    Depending on work load i think it would be fun to mill some slabs or lumber in our "free time". Bring your alaskans.
    I recently fell in love with "noah's mill" whiskey, any takers?

    I have an 051 in about the same shape; perhaps we could wish them together as a frankensaw?

    Alaskans: on it. Might even have one to pass on, as I am newly "Alaskan-rich".

    OK folks, be aware that this a hazard tree inspection year. So there will definitely be trees to drop. Gear up accordingly.

    No boom truck - still needs work. Trying to get it to Aaron's place so we can work on it w/o "tourists" messing with it ...

    So it'll be traditional stuff like tension lines, etc.

    Broc is right. No bucket. Ill check in with you all after the 19th, 1st of two inspection days. If it is hairy enough and looks like we need we can rent a boom truck. and if super hairy-scary/near structures, the park is able to contract to our local tree companies. I look forward to a fun and safe weekend.

    Bill I have your 075 and bar here. CKelp Dave brought it down from CC last week. Do you want to meet up sometime before the GTG, or would'ya like to just wait until the GTG for me to pass your prize on to you? Either way is fine with me.

    Thanks for the reminder mr mac. Nate, bob, patty, ect... there is no longer power at the run down horse stables. I have a small honda genny and a big dewalt if we need them. Sorry about that, i got a little nervous about having that line hot for fire reasons. I turned off the power when the crew that was using the area left and weeks later found it turned on. Scary. I could imagine some kid zapping himself or burning down the area or both so i had pge snip the line that was in the big old oak tree and take the meter. I hope that is not to much of an inconvenience for anyone. If so, ill work something out.

    Yes, and thank you for the reminder. It's time to start hunting for one to reserve and rent. Generally 2 months out it's easy to find a good one, less so one month out.

    If all else fails, I can burn generator time to supply whatever needs it. I haven't used more than a couple of hours on the thing the last couple years, and I've paid for plenty, so I might as well use 'em.

    Aaron I figured you would like to make sure that saw is running the way it should be. If it needs a carb kit or something that's fine with me. That way it will be nice and warm for the GTG.

    (I know, I'm a ****) (I'll message you in a week or so).

    LOL. No problem Bill. When I picked up the 075 from Dave I told him I'd probably end up working on it. He's amused that I have a big old Stihl here among all my Husqvarnas and old North American iron. He'll probably end up sneaking a pic or two of me working on the dang thing for blackmail purposes....:popcorn2:
