The sheep comment was low! I buy such animals for a side job! They are just smaller cows with wool... Suitcase with legs :) and if you guys really want to get nasty start talking about goats. lol

I'm still wanting to know the "scrub" tree status, black jack oaks? piss elm? pine? lol... i'm guessing black jacks for the most part

Any information about motels in the area?

Are you going to need help on Friday with setup?

Last, how big of a piece of wood is going to be there for those big saws? Need to figure out if I need something larger than a 47 inch bar.

Only about 460 miles for me, from Killeen. Something over 6000, from Basra.

I'll have the 880, 066 and my new to me Homelite 1130G, as well as smaller saws with me. The 880 was a hit the first one - before I sent it to Brad Snelling. Should be a lot of fun.

If there was some real big wood, I would probably pick up a 60 or 72 inch bar.

I am looking forward to meeting a bunch of new friends there.

I have a 42" down from a storm I'm going to move to the site, I'll hunt around and see if something bigger can be found.

I will combine all the answers and info into one post, when I get time.

Yes we can do a farm tour. I hope to have all the prepwork done before the GTG but if anyone wants to come up friday I'm sure it will help.

I am happy to see all the interest.

The First AR GTG.

Around 57 saws, some rednecks got together with some hill people, and some town folks. Someone said my saw is bigger and better than your saw. everone met here and this is the outcome.
