So to step back to March of 2016 ... I knew there was a problem but really couldn't do anything till the wood was pulled.

2 completely destroy'd pallets but I also think they might not have been all that good when they were put in cause I pulled out very few piece of board. I know my work ethic ... some others ... well ...

Keep on ... Runnin' Loads ...!!

Bought an old Dodge for my son to learn to drive last year, and it’s been handy for short quick trips to the timber. Pics are from last week. Only had a couple hours to spend, but dropped a 60’ dead standing oak and started on a blown out Black Cherry top. My son is 14 and very small for his age, but is doing a nice job in his first season running a saw under a watchful eye.

Might be small for his age but looks like he wears size 15 boots! I was 4'9" when I started at the age of 14 and was 5'6" by the time I hit 15. Sure he'll hit his spurt. Nice photos and glad you got to share some time with your son.

My 13 year old is 5'7" and wears size 11's. It is tough to know how much more he will grow as he has grandfathers and uncles from 5'5" to 6'4"

Thursday’s load. We cut for a couple hours before thanksgiving at grandmas and finished it late afternoon. Me and the wife. Delivered it last night after nap time. 3 cords dry mesquite. Usually load up on Saturday, but thought we’d get a jump since I’m behind and had the day off work.

Not much going on up here as I'm still just running junk loads when I can so it's a good time to post up our tools ...

So junk wood, junk saw ... 40cc Poulan Silver rockin' a McCulloch hard nose!! It was a dead hand me down saw that took some work, grabbed a hard nose outa the pile and got added to the herd after the 350 Ski incident ... RIP ... and it's still going !

1970's bar, still has the hard chrome nose.

Cutting wood last night and the supervisor keeping an eye out.

Kind of irritated, worked till about midnight, the weather circus was saying 6-12" of snow.

Figured I'd get a cord loaded in the truck before the storm hit and be able to get it out to a customer today. I've tried to deliver to him twice already.

Just as I was heading to the shop to grab the truck to head out, he cancelled again. I've got plenty of other orders, but just makes it hard to keep a schedule.

Ported 562 most of the time, still my favorite saw. Carlton and Oregon 3/8 square ground chain, prolly not the best grind for firewood but most of the stuff I cut is pretty clean and l just really like the way it cuts. 52FEA97B-EDFB-4017-B7F4-4588BF14E5BC.jpeg

Everybody runs a deckover around here, farm country, but there ain't much out there I'd take over a low profile gooseneck.

Silver edition.......dang.

If I squint just right I can blur out the Hooskie but still see the Ford. :)

That is a pile of weight for a bumper pull. I'll haul small loads and if they're loaded just a bit too far back it'll drive me crazy.

Yea I can’t imagine loading a deck over and unloading it. The guys around here using them are all paying guys to do the work. I really don’t get it. If I need to haul more than the 4 I can put on this one I’d be best off getting a semi with live bottom. I can get this 20’ low boy through any residential alley I’ve tried. As well as narrow roads through the pasture. It is 82” wide floor though so some gates are tight. Weighs only 3800 empty so it pulls easy empty too. Only think better would be a 24’ with the 10k single wheel axles if a guy needed to haul more cords.

I put 9 in a u haul one time some guys flew in and rented it and drove it back to Florida.(If it made it!)

I stared hauling to the big city using a 16’ bumper pull cattle trailer when I was in college. I’d stack 3 cords in it every weekend. That was hell loading and unloading. I had a half ton short bed pickup with a v8, I’d gas it down the hills so it wouldn’t whip and then coast up so I didn’t blow the trans. It’s a wonder I never wrecked it. Made enough money to buy that dodge in the pick though before the half tom went out of warranty and chevy quit buying the transmissions. It ate 4 in 35000 miles.
