    ...and some pics from up on the farm......and of some of those huge white oaks I'm gonna cut this month, maybe starting tomorrow. The trunks on these two trees are easily 32-34" diameter, the one is a double trunk. Probably at least 6 to 9 good saw logs in there, if I can get them out of the woods with the sled. If not, there's a HEAP of firewood in those two trees. At least 4 to 6 cord, counting the huge tops that are on them. Both of these trees are on the ridge between two of my trails, easy to get to them from the trail, just hoping I can skid them across the field with my trusty ol' sleigh!

    And the best part of today was sledding on the big hill out across the field in front of our house. we were the only ones up there this morning, by 3:00 this afternoon there was easily 40 kids or more on that hill sled riding. That hill has been a tradition in this town for over a hundred years......

    Just got in from sledding with the family on the hill behind us. Soaked to the bone. Here is the only picture I could provide. Good times. Couple of splits in the stove now. Over and out.

    Thanks for that link, Zap.....that will help me with figuring out what I want to build to get these logs out.....

    I may make something like this (and like the one Sav built) but make it for one log at a time, with a solid pipe pull shaft that I can link up to the back of my snowmobile. I'm getting some idears in my head.....::-)

    I hope it gets cold enough for you to get some good snow Ray. That slush really sucks, especially when you have to shovel or move it with a snowblower....:mad:

    You still have presents on your porch, I see snow for miles, good drink just laying around in the snow, trees to be processed, and the best chimney ever. :)

    Sounds about right, Stow is about 40 min north of me... I haven't gone out to measure it yet but it looks like 6+

    The dang Ariens was pissed off at me for not getting used last year. Even though I changed the oil and ran the engine in Sep it still coughed and ran rough for a good 20 minutes before it wanted to get going.. But we got 'er done.

    I measured 6" on the driveway and about 8" in the backyard where it was falling off the giant white pine. I'd call it 7 inches officially.

    Just finished snowblowing if you want to call the slush snow! Man it was a nightmare as expected.. Can't tell you how many times I got the chute clogged up with slush! My neighbor's drive wasn't touched and they were out so I did some there as well.. The 100$ snowblower worked well considering what I was dealing with..

    We had another 4 plus inches of snow last night, it's windy enough the snow bombs are coming off the trees. We put some wood in so when I got out of the rhino I pushed the trailer closer to the wood pile, the rhino got blasted with snow coming off the white pines.
