    Yes, it's a dangerous game, but a life that is hard to give up on when It's in you blood come bust or boom.
    Eventually, downing timber just becomes second nature, even though we look up every so often.
    Regardless, we never get tired of it all.

    Life is incredibly fragile and everything we do carries a chance of injury or death, that's just the way it is. There is nothing we can do that does not involve that risk. Felling trees becomes something that you could do in your sleep, but we still need to pay attention and let people know where we are. I have a family and I want them to know where I am. I like to work with a buddy because it helps to have someone to talk to and sometimes you just feel creeped out in the woods and having a buddy with you helps with that feeling. There have been times when a couple of us don't feel ok about going in certain woods at certain times, so we change plans. My dad's woods are hit and miss for that creepy feeling.

    Well, I have come the conclusion watching that music video was 3 minutes and 11 seconds of my life not well spent... Is anyone else who saw/heard that interested in joining a "woman with a chainsaw" support group?

    Got no time to post more vids right now. It's minus 22F here right now and glad I have 19 sticks of wood left.
    Been unseasonably cool up here now. Bringing the saw into the shack is customary procedure.
    Still my 385XPG gently weeps.
