    Used to cut firewood for my use, but got tired of keeping insects off the wood.. Now just to trim my trees and cut some for my daughter. MS362CM with a 20" bar is my largest and longest.

    'Creative writing' is my passion.
    That's my Dad in the picture. I'm yet a pimpely faced 16 and a 1/2 year old. I often read as well do I talk to experienced people on the west coast about Timber Falling, chain saws as well Crab & Salmon fishing.
    He will not allow me to purchase a saw or go fishing for Salmon, Cod or Crab until my Spelling and sentence structure improves.

    I just feel the narrative is best presented in the 'first person'

    Srry for any confusion.

    Cut firewood to heat the home mostly
    biggest saw would be 2095 and 2094 Jreds. They don't get used much but I do fire them up at least once a year.
    biggest bar is somewhere around 30"

    haha.
    You can never get me for multi profiles Jerry. I just multiply within the same one. I'm a writer...er..um..something to that effect. Haha

    Let me write you a story.

    Friend from your neck of the woods Jerry. Dartmouth Nova Scotia. Funny Cat. Dam he would keep your ads in shape, he was so funny. Legitimate tough guy too. His dad ran a boxing club there. he was a kick boxer. He is about 5 yrs younger than me so that would put him at about?? 11 and a 1/2 because I'm 16 and a 1/2 so that's about right.

    So he's a heli rigger on the west coast.
    The boss is driving. I guess they needed some workers.

    He calls the bosses cell phone from the back seat as the boss is driving the whole crew home and makes out he is looking for a logging job. Of course he puts on this wimpy wimpy voice and the boss asks if he have any experience? He replies: .."well I had a job at Mcdonalds once"...It went on for a while but the boys just couldn't hold it in any longer . aaaahhhhaaahhhhaa.

    I took him to Alaska with me and brought him in as a partner. Unforgettable times.

    Sounds familiar you mean Gypo Logger ? Yukon John? Never met him.
    Ive had his number from Shane for a few yrs but haven't called him yet. Great guy though. Go into my thread on the third page of L&F sec.
    Think its called logging songs, poems and p..."
    Think it's top of the third page he speaks of writings a book and getting sucker punched by "Stomping' Tom Conners" in a basement about 2002?
    That's funny!!!!

    I believe I told him don't take It personal, That's just how the Irish say hello.

    That's an awesome crazy story by my standard. That's top shelf for sure?

    Biggest saw/bar for me is my ported 090g with 96" bar. It's mostly a gtg saw unless a large Sequoia or Cedar need removal. Othewise I generally use 200t's with 16" bars & ported 372's with 28" bars. Sometimes a 325 or 346 with 18" bars. 0818151003a.jpg

    That`s true and he`s a good egg. Tom liked his moonshine.
    What`s Shane up to, don`t hear from him no more?

    Lawyer in a city that has had two floods , two tornado and a hurricane. Federal disaster declaration for all those events. I have been a chainsaw volunteer many, many times. The worst day cutting beats the best day in court,

    Poulan 32cc, Poulan 50cc, 372xp, 395xp and Chin 070 (still not quite right.)

    24, 16, 20, 24, 32, 36 and 42" bars. I love that 14" Poulan.

    Still thousands of damaged trees in poor neighborhoods. Many thousands of pecan blow downs in the rural areas.

    Love cutting red oak and pecan. Have learned to fear Live Oak. Long leaf pine is boring and messy. Well, I guess a 34" widowmaker between houses isn't really boring but it's still messy.
