I haven't got any raspberries yet and the mulberrys weren't as plentiful.
Overall a very bad summer for crops.
Tomatoes are now coming in. Have a...
Completely agree. I have a 96 F150 4x4 that is as tough as they come. We went down atv and skidoo trails this past spring and it came out like a...
Hey Tonter, what jeep do you have?
I've got a '54 Willys station wagon that I'll be hauling home pretty soon.
Had it since the early 70s. Paid...
Mind you, it's been raining steady, but before that rain, I was using mine about 4 to 6 hours a day, for a week, to get next years supply stacked.
Does it have the 6.5 B & S?
I bought one for $1199 Cdn at TSC last Xmas. It's been nothing but a pleasure.
The nature of being a scrounger is that it's hard to give up the habit.
I just brought home five F150 truckloads, probably 1.5 bush cords to 2 bush...
That's got to hurt.
At least he was man enough to admit it and kind enough to share it.
I think I'm smarter already just from looking at...
I bought the chaps when I bought the big Stihl.
But shouldn't he have been on one side of the tree and cutting the other?
Have I read that right?
Ok, I have some tasty smoked meat now thanks to advice given here.
I got the internal temp of the smoker up to 215. I didn't use the water pan. I do...
I bought that saw for some big deadfall and some really big Norway maple. It coincided with my Husqy breaking down for the first time in 16 years....

Close to Michigan, but far from Jersey.
I'll be on the lookout for one.
Haven't seen may dump beds around here, though.
That's how I'll work it.
I have found nails in some of the ash I've emptied. But so far, never hit one with the saw.
I like what I'm hearing.
Yeah, it's as tough as it comes and heavy. No one wants to lock onto it but me. that's why it's free.
The uhaul rental...
Now there's an idea worth pondering.
I do have a buddy that wants to get into some stone hauling that's willing to go in on a heavy duty trailer...
Probably not. But for say 3 to 4 cords a year, I could probably borrow a trailer or rent one.
But then I would have to get the brakes.
Or just do...
Exactly what I've found.
It's some of the oldest deadfall in the bush and still bug free and rot free. Amazing when you think about it.
That sounds like what I should be doing. The tried and true K.I.S.S. method. :lol:
Ok, I think I get that.
Tell me if I'm wrong: I need a smaller firebox so I can move it around, minus water pan.
But otherwise, just use the one I...
So the vents would be where smoke would enter the smoker?
How close to the smoker would they need to be? There's about 8" clearance.
No, it's not that big, most is less than probably 20". The 20" bar sounds like a good idea.
I will be by myself.
So a cord is not beyond my truck's...
I think I'm lost. There's only one door.
So do you mean have a firebox external to the smoker and open up the vents?
I have one extra spring in my truck now. I put in 2 face cords and the rubber bumpers were on the axle, hence why I put in the extra spring. It's a...
Not sure what you mean by an offset firebox.
Ok, thanks. I'll get over to wally world and check it out.
All of this stuff is deadfall. I can take trees that are leaning or down, no new cutting is allowed. Anyway, the fresh stuff is so dense and heavy...
I've been given complete access to a stand of black locust, the deadfall that is. There's probably enough for a lifetime supply and some to sell....
Would a good magnet work to detect metal?
I get some stuff like this, not pine though, it's usually maple. I have a piece now in my rounds with wire...
Wow! You guys have been great, Thanks so much.
Now I have about 3 things I think I could do correctly with my level of skill (none) and experience...
