    Hello there all my fellow chainsaw firewood cutting fanatics! Last year we had a firewood cutting day for our Wood Ministry here in southcentral Pa and it was a FANTASTIC day!! We had numerous guys from this page show up from literally all over to help our wood ministry cut firewood. Well, I am seeing if there are those of you who may be interested in doing this again. I was asked by a couple guys to do it again as they wanted to come again to help. So, let me know who is interested in doing this and if enough people are interested we can work on scheduling a day. As before we here will provide the tons of water as well as lunch and dinner if you all want to stay for dinner.

    The attached pics are from last years work day.

    Get a date up and I’m 99% in again. @lead farmer, if you bring Shemane we ain’t letting her run a splitter. Let me know if you’re coming Rodney, I may have more saws that need tuned. :) @James Miller, you in? I may bring the Miller Mod Saws 9010.

    If I remember it was almost 4 hrs for me but a huge group of great people. And yes, @James Miller was there last year. That kinetic splitter Rodney brought was an impressive beast.

    I never ran a saw. Bunch of people cutting and running splitters but no one getting the wood to the splitters so I just carried wood all day.

    The 27th is not a good day for me.

    But I'm not the one you should be concerned about.

    Thanks Jim.

    Right now, both weekends are good for me. @James Miller if you need a ride, you can jump in with me.

    Either works for me. Trying to talk our associate pastor into coming so he gets the idea and hopefully start a similar program here.
