    Craigslist often has then cheap. Home Depot has new ones for 60-80bucks. I use mine non stop when c/s/s. Makes life a lot easier when the lay of the land isn't enough to warrant a motorized mode of transport.

    You didn't happen to see Scotty flying around in the helicopter near Lincoln by chance? He must have took a wrong turn. Lol.....:)

    I wish. The wife would like me to move my wood stacks away from the driveway and up a pretty steep hill. I think Scotty and his helicopter could help. Especially with 8 inches of snow on the ground right now.

    Ha, don't let anybody kid you. Scotty's using that Chinook to move building materials for his remodel project. He's more afraid of Mrs. Overkill than He'll ever be of any of us. He said firewood, She said living room. Guess where He is.>> A C

    For the record, Ralphie Boy is the one with the chopper. He was supposed to pick me up, but the damm rotors iced up on him, had to turn back when he hit Pittsburgh. Next time, fellas.....next time.....:p

    That said, seeing you guys gang up together and GIT-R-DONE.........that shows what a great group of characters are in this Hearth.com. I'm proud to be a part of this woodcutting, hoarding, neighbors-look-at-us-like-we're-nuts, so-does-the-wife brotherhood......I'm proud to call you all my firewood family!!

    Let's think about this for a minute. Since zap has admitted he crashed the rhino into the ironwood plowing snow ( admits he was avoiding sasquatch ) and no show scotty was seen flying east in a copter, my money is on a stuck rhino that was air lifted out . Not some make believe story of a pine log, besides we all know zap would have provided us pics well in advance of this make believe log! Yep, 2+2 = 4 :D
