This is the real thread for this event.

Feb 18 2012.

Glastonbury CT. Show up when you can. I will begin the logging process at 0900. I have Several dead softwoods (big) to drop, buck, chip and split. I also have one huge white oak to drop and process.
We will have a 2 car garage with heat, tables & chairs, a grill and port a let.
I am building cookie & noodling stations (as we speak)
we will have 2 splitters, one good size chipper and a grapple bucket skidsteer (which I suck at driving)
There is parking.
There will be a keg of Long Trail or harpoon IPA Hey it is a long weekend.
Bring sleeping bags if you want-the garage will be the squad bay for suckers that end up wanting more on Sunday

Lets get a list of who is coming & what is being brought
This is a party for the local people too so we are expecting normal folks without saws- no heckling the normal folks! They will be hiding in the garage.

Please bring your life insurance policy (signed over to me)
A current physical card
Shot records
A current will with all equipment (tractors , trucks , etc) bequeathed to me.

I'll throw my hat in as a maybe. I am busy as a 1 legged man in a butt kicking contest right now with Mom's estate stuff. (some minor renovations so the house will sell quicker)
I Know I won't have time to get a mill up and running, I do have a Mini mill but not a decent one. (and I haven't had time to use that ione either.)
If someone does bring a mill I would be happy to lend a hand.

I need someone to drive the loader who is good at it. I want to cut a trail and spread chips on the trail.
Move some big brush piles and use the grapple bucket to move big logs for cookies and other activities
We can have a cut crew ,chip crew ,splitting crew ,and a beer drinking trash talking crew

I wonder what crew

I'll be on
