    Yeah you can cut for someone else but yes they do have to be present. Probably good for me to take a brake anyway I guess, my right elbow and forearm been hurting pretty bad, getting hard to grip and pick things up with my right hand. Probably won’t happen but sounds good, lol. Just have to use my left one more ;).
    I will try to get some pics, sure have missed some good ones, usually see them when I’m driving.

    Funny seeing all those big sticks and hardly any axles under the trailers :lol:.
    Most folks these days have no idea how much lumber was produced in Michigan, the trees are smaller, but a lot heavier :surprised3:.

    Well I’m just trying to get the courage to go into the cold woods to do some tracking. The wolves have been through here at least twice since Monday and at least once since Wednesday. The “shack deer” ie doe and fawn that hang out in my yard all of the time returned last night.

    The cold.

    Unless you use a predator call in the woods, your chance of seeing a wolf, especially when walking is nearly zero.

    You're a machine Mike:muscle:.
    Lake effect snow just west of us so only flurries here, if the wind was to pick up it would be snowing here.
    Heading out to load another cord shortly.

    And so it begins...first fire of the season...

    Pulled the brick, ran the brush...stuff was so light and so little that most of it blew out the top of the chimney from the draft. No creosote at all...

    Dog knew right away what that meant![​IMG]

    See flakes here everyday, most of them behind the wheel...

    Saw my first snow flakes this morning too, parents had snow on the ground last night...lake effect I'm sure.

    I have some elm mixed in as well for the cold. I had cut some dead standing and that was next in the pile, only reason I called it shoulder season wood. I maybe have a couple days of box elder and I am done. Main staple will be sugar maple with mixed ash and elm. Never paid attention to the difference in burn time between the two, ash just dries quicker. I got nothing bad to say about elm though. I got a gasser OWB so it all burns well. Maple just relights quicker and gets hotter faster.

    Cut up the deer my wife hit, lots of good meat and the rest go to dog food. Coyotes were near by last night but left us alone, I had back up fire power ready just in case. 1st snow flakes today as I cut up deer meat and its going to be in the teens tonight. Owb is going strong, first night I'll add some more wood.

    Not as dark as the phone makes it look. Chain needs serious help just did enough to make it cut. Will probably just replace it.
