    I got to meet a lot of good guys today( Amateur Cutter from the forum ) and split a crap ton off wood too all for a great cause. This was for a gentleman who had a double lung transplant and is recuperating. I am not sure of the amount but I am sure it was at least 6 cord today maybe more. We filled three very large trailers as well as a pile on the ground. Lots of fun ! I refused to use AC saw because I dont want to be tempted to buy a new one ;lol !

    Dammit I wish I could've been there with you guys. We're gonna have to do a GTG, and we'll try to gear it around a situtation like you fellas did today. We can do it to help someone in need, and we'll have a good time doing it. This summer.....

    Looks like a Great Time and for a GREAT CAUSE! Both of you should pat yourself on the back. You are both very honorable Men in my book (if that means anything :)).

    Scotty, I agree. We have to do Something! It could be here at my place, I always NEED more wood. I would have a 6 Cord Log load waiting ;) But seriously, I have a whole week of vaca set aside for my travel time and re-coup time..

    AC ran that saw from 9am till we finished which was around 3pm I think then had to listen to me make conversation all the way to the drop off point ;lol that is one tough sore man right there ;). AC is a real cool guy I had fun ! There was a guy there who I had previously met and it drove me nuts after he pointed it out and I went I have seen you somewhere before. Then it popped in my head we both drove Semi and went to the Electrolux plant in Greenville MI all the time it is truly a small world. Lots of good guys there it was fun.

    I brought my 46cc Poulan Pro that has been used to death then rebuilt and used almost to death again. I have been saving for a couple of years for a good saw Echo CS-600 which is why I did not want run a good saw and start drooling shoot mine never left the case. AC and a few others got to telling me that for around $250 to $300 I could buy a really nice saw used which was news to me. Every time I look all I find on Craigslist is expensive junk. When we where coming back AC offered to sell me a used beat to heck but really good running saw he traded for. I could not argue with that I could care less what a saw looks like as long as it runs well.
    I believe he is finding the missing pieces for the saw.

    Dave I wont lie I had an alterier motive this time though. After our firewood theft AC offered to deliver a trailer load to me as well. That said would have done this for free as well it is a good feeling knowing your helping someone out. Every time I do something like this I make good honest friends and that is priceless.

    Pete and AC along with the others I tip my hat to you for helping a fellow wood burner. I have seen many here demonstrate what they're made of including Pen, Backwoods Savage, Hogz, Craig and a host of others give back. Hearth.com is a great place for many reasons and why I keep coming back. Pete and AC it is an honor to be associated with you both, congrats!

    Misery does like company but it doesn't look like there was any misery there. Congrats on the noble cause.

    It was freezing rain here yesterday so good thing I have the umbrella! I threw some rubber roofing over the tractor to keep it dry. I could have used the company to share in the misery but alas, I work alone.

    I need new boots to keep my feet warm and dry. Wet cold hands I can tolerate. Today the rain turned to snow so my feet should stay dry. Only prob now is the rounds are frozen together and slippery to handle.

    Nice pics!

    I tip my hat to you all, alterier motives or not. What was in your heart was what mattered the most. The world would be a much better place if this type of giving happened more often. Also thanks for the pics, looked like a good time.

    Mike, the greatest thing about this is the fact that the surgery was a success. They had him up & walking the next day.He'll be home in mid Dec Lord willing, & be able to be a father & husband to his family. Says he feels great & actually was able to go hiking with his 2 boys for several miles near the Hospital where he is recouping. Only issue now might be rejection, & so far so good. A C

    Bottom line on that saw is I traded it for my pro mac 605 & $ 35.00 dollars to a guy desperate for a running saw. Hadn't run in years. Fixed the fuel tank cleaned it up, comp. tested it @ 135 psi, new clutch drum & sprocket. Fired it up & it ran good, so I threw a bar on it & used it here & there. Got the 036 pro & just don't use it much. Dug around in the pile, found a decent 20" bar, slapped a really used chain on it & called it Pete's saw. It's as ugly as they come, but runs good, & fired on the 2nd pull. Don't have much in it, & want even less out of it. It needs to be run. Can't think of a better guy to have it than Pete. He worked his tail off Saturday, & got nothing but a sore body & hopefully a little comraderie & satisfaction for a job well done. Hopefully some of the other guys join hearth.com, they're a good bunch. A C
