I sold firewood when I was young. People see my giant firewood pile and ask if I sell any. I don't sell a stick of wood, altho I give away plenty of rounds produced in my work.

Was watching a guy load 8 or 10 wrapped bundles of pine (it's what we produce around here) into his car at the grocery store last week. All I could think was, Go up the road a bit and buy twice that for a fraction of the cost at one of the local firewood yards. But town folk don't know such things.

A couple years ago I glanced at the firewood bundles outside a grocery store and saw copious moisture condensed inside the plastic wrappers. Some poor soul was going to buy that schit and wonder why his fireplace produced only smoke.

Heading up to the cabin. Have to cut a few problem balsams before my permit expires on 4/10.

Being I’m cutting sappy crap wood, I left most of the new to me saws at home and just have a L65 I scrounged over the winter plus the Zog 346.
have a nice weekend! anything special planned for Easter Dinner? roasted lamb shanks here with rosemary ~

Put several balsamweeds on the ground. I’ll get everything limbed/bucked (the smaller crap will be burned) but won’t be doing any piling today.

Had one twist a little when falling and clipped my topper window on the plow truck but only put a dent in the aluminum. Topper was free anyhow.


New to me L65 runs good but oil hole on bar was fully crudded up. Cleaned everything out and ready to test again.

Zog’s Moody ported 346. It runs great, Moody built a decent saw before he started doing shady stuff.

My 154. I bought this saw last spring, sight unseen with no recoil and no clutch cover. Pieced together on the cheap and has a Swiss cheese muffler mod. Runs great.

Took this little tree down in my yard. It kicked my butt. Just realized it's been five years since I've ran a chainsaw. Also bought a new Fiskars splitting axe, damn that thing is awesome. Felt good to swing an axe again, was almost better than running the chainsaw.
I have to figure out how to adjust the carb again, saw would cut off at idle. I may try to do that high side adjustment so it four strokes when it's not cutting but that may be too far in the weeds lol. Figured the saw would be tuned properly since HD was renting it out but nope. The filter is pretty filthy too so just ordered a new one. Anyways, time to drink some Modelos and look at all the trees I want to cut down in the wooded area next to me lol.

Two weeks ago this spruce in my lawn started listing to the north after a day of heavy winds:

I was busy getting organized for a week on OBX rushing the weather and beating the crowds. Came home and found that more winds while I was away finished the job:

Cut it as is into 5 x 14' sections and dragged them into the woods:

Discovered a 14' section of spruce with all limbs attached makes a great trail groomer attachment, so I drug one around the trail system in the woods before dropping it at a convenient place. I limbed these sections out right along one of my trails, and after the limbs dry a while, I run them through the chipper and use the results as a trail mix to level it a bit and keep me out of the mud and ease my way over the rocks and roots.

The five logs will be added to my shooting backstop to compensate for a couple years of settling.

There is a use for everything in my new green deal

I’ll spray my clothes in permethrin for early archery season here. Ticks get bad. I like sawyers personally but there’s other manufactures too.

Keep it on your clothes and dont get it on your skin. Short term side effects arnt bad, long term side effects are worse then the tick bite. Although I doubt anyone is dumb enough to ingest or bath in the stuff.
Deet is typically a safer alternative. Although there have been rumors (I'll call it) that it's also not safe in high concentrations, its much safer then permethrin.

Well that looks like a really old study. Everything I’ve read points to it being safe, DEET too. They’ve both been studied for decades. All my military camouflage uniforms were treated with permethrin.
Also, I’m not sure how effective DEET is for ticks. It really works for mosquitoes but ticks are stubborn little bastards. I usually use DEET on my skin and permethrin on my clothes. Was just wondering if anyone else used something else.

Ran one of the 346's today, it's all stock(may fix that). It's right on the edge of being too fat, needs to be leaned out a bit for weather any warmer than today, it was 62. I've also been using an ms201cm rear handle, nice light saw. I sold the two I had before, and had to get another, I like them a lot.
So I had an interesting thing happen today, my daughter saw someone pull out of the neighbors with some wood :confused:. I'm just joking, I could care less, but there's more to the story. I talked to my neighbor and his BIL came by to get a load, the neighbors wife said to him, are you sure that the right thing to do(giving the wood to her brother), Brett's been working real hard out there. He knew I didn't care as I already have plenty, I just thought it was nice she recognized that I've been doing a good bit to help them, I thought it was a bit funny she was willing to give it to me over her brother.

I moved the bigger pine log from the front of the second green log pile today and I also lifted the bigger locust log in the back up to allow more wood to get back against the trees. I'm hoping to get a few boards out of it and want it on top instead of the bottom as I don't plan on bucking any of these green wood piles anytime soon. Then I added a few more loads of sticks to the pile and two nice sized logs to the pile I plan on bucking and splitting to put in the woodshed for 2 seasons from now.
