    Your Tacoma is not squatting too much under that load. Looking good.

    Here in PA, we only have about a foot of snow on the ground, but the temps are being reported by the weather guessers on TV as 21 degrees below average. So our snow cover is still soft and fluffy, just rooster tails under the tires of the ATV and builds up under trailer and skid plates. So, for my micro operation here I ran my snow plow around and skimmed a couple inches of the fluff off my trails:

    Then dug deep into the dregs of my wood piles and moved small cart loads to the driveway for pickup loads by chilly customers begging for another load.

    I'd really prefer not to offer the wood I am cutting now which isn't seasoned as well as it should be.

    No complaints though, this is great weather to be working in the woods!

    Although you can't tell in the picture, my newer Tacoma doesn't handle a load as well as my older one did.

    No fancy drone, nor gimbal assist follower - just a stick I found in the woods with my GoPro strapped to it, and I move it along with me to catch the full trail pull:



    The sunshine is already making the little hill alongside my range backstop (at about 1:00) slippery, but I played with it a little and got some traction to get up and around.

    I'll take a break from posting for a while, let other folks share their haulers. Thanks

    Got some more cherry today. I made one cut before taking the pic. Got it down without damaging anything. Kota seemed to like the bark. Hopefully won’t hurt him. I Heard cherry is bad for cows or horses. Not totally bottomed out. About 1” away before me getting in it. I wanna build a flat bed and put airbags on it. 66C4B0AD-2E43-492D-87E6-3014D3899E5B.jpeg 6A2A0AD7-F5A2-406C-BB4D-E7EDD292681E.jpeg Tiny bit of rot but not bad at all. It’s some nice dense cherry that actually grew cherry's 5F848ED1-3173-4908-BB99-E41599D31A30.jpeg 109378C2-80B8-4778-9575-0317B5A5DF50.jpeg 21FF0637-3326-4CE8-BE6B-E3737E17D677.jpeg

    Cherry leaves, bark, twigs and pits contain cyanide. Not good for that beautiful pup of yours. Ron
