    Never a dull moment unless we make it that way, looks like you made something out of it :cheers:.
    I was thinking of you today, went to my parents to drop a couple leaning cherry trees :surprised3:.
    All went well so I didn't have any new learning experiences, this time lol.
    Got a nice pile going over there and I know there's at least one more tree I need to get down for them that's leaning into another from the wind we had up here.
    I still need to figure out what I'm going to do with the nice sized white oak, may slab it out where it lies, much time to think about that one though.

    I definitely need a way to get my pull rope higher up in the tree. I have at least 5 more that need to be pulled or I'm going to hire someone. Sometimes I think I'm getting to old for this.

    Al-k. Check out big shot sling shot throw line. Buddy of mine uses it for getting his ropes up in trees works great

    Big shot as @Jwilliams said. I just used a ladder on the first one, then the second I shot a throwline/throwball through the crotch (second try:happy:). Then I pulled my rope up and used that to pull my winch cable up and back down to just above where I cut it.
    You could place an ad on here looking for another member in the area to help you out. Someone has to be up your way and have all the basic equipment and be willing to help getting them laid out for you.

    I hate when that happens.
    Looks like you could use a firewood lean-to

    Today's production. Only took 5 hrs. Counting the time waiting on tow truck to pick up trailer and truck when it broke down on way to pick up more wood. 20191021_175027.jpg

    The joys of a wood boiler is I don’t have to split small this took me one tank of gas in the splitter and maybe two hrs worth of work. Which includes driving from field to shed with Polaris ranger bed loaded which took a couple of trips.

    I believe I knew a guy from Emden back in college. (Many years ago, Major Midwestern University) Can't think of his name right now.

    As Steve says. "Welcome."

    Thanks. Great to be here. Let me know if you think of the guy's name. I'm sure I would know him in a town of 500.

    no 'cut it, split it, stack it' for heat all winter long pix... but, none the less still oak falling into my lap. one huge oak tree came down week or so back, 2 day job for the arborist crew. city wont pick up huge piles. it was a huge pile. I felt sure I could pick n choose at my leisure. nope, city picked it all up next day! :cry: enoff oak to make my back yard my wood pile! lol...

    still, as it is... under arm, carry in's work just fine for me. cost? bit wear n tear to my shoe soles... this headed to wood pile today, camp fire fodder. winter? couple cords in reserve...

    oak drop. good for a few hours campfires... kitchen wood and bit more

    Reinela, Still haven't come up with the name, but this was over 40 years ago. Many of us who got a college education did not stay in small towns where we grew up. But I am thinking it was a Dutch or German sounding last name. One that wants to come to mind is Klokkenga, but a low level of certainty.

    Emden is close to Lincoln, am I right about that at least? On 136?

    The rain held off long enough for me to split and stack two face cord.

    I did a count of how much stacked firewood we have in inventory and came up with just over 56 face cord with another three or four that needs stacking. I have one area left that is open which can hold another 12 face cord, I'm hoping to get another eight face cord of ash before the snow gets deep.
