    I will say, the food will be good. Is this a rain or shine affair?

    Yep looks like a chance of light rain but with this set up we should run 1-3/4 cord an hour. 3-4 hours and done!

    still pretty snow-bound in these parts but its starting to go pretty fast with temps consistently in the 40s and low 50s the last week or so. cabin fevers gettin bad. I'll be needing a full report of you'alls shenanigans to keep me sane til I can get out and start having fun with trees. And by full report I mean pics of trees, logs, stumps, rounds, splits, splitters, saws, food, etc...



    Thanks!

    If its solid 10 ft will get milled, but its a monster. Should be 3 cords without trunk and the hickory will go 3-4 easy! Hatches where a big hit on the splitter crews!

    Just an update from the Homeowner. "You Guys are Awesome" Feel free to use me as a reffrence anytime! Still have monster beech and hickroy, and a tulip in the side yard. Yes MMAUL THATS A TULIP NOT ASH! lol Turns out the Guitar makers like that stuff so your off the hook! Wood have been funny though. (bet you do not miss that id again) That wood have been a roll on the ground funny loading you up! Everyone loaded down with beech and hickory, you would have been able to pull a bigger load.....Too Funny.

    Oh Chris when that 180 dyes I want it for my neckless.
