    Hey there is 3 other members that will be in on the harvest.....Any others that need fire wood chime in. Dont think we can move it out of this bottom land now. Unless some one has a small 4x4 I have a wench back-up lol....MMaul has a 4x4 suburan will give it a shot but pretty heavy.

    Wish we live closer we match up on life style well lol 2 mills rolling and some one on an edger Priceless!

    You got it bro! That does sound like a great time.We could shoot the sh*t,enjoy the fresh air,get some nice wood & and a day in the woods.Guessing I'm easily 7-800 miles from you,maybe a bit more.Even if I loaded the pickup with the gear,packed a carryon bag with 2 days of clothes sprung for hotel & food (I'm not real big but have a HUGE appetite in wintertime haha),unless I won LOTTO right fast its kinda impractical.Be great if that would happen though. :coolsmile:

    A working vacation,you could call it...

    I didnt get serious with taking pics until I got my digital in March 04.Never thought about it all those years ago.Had a couple cheap regular cameras & would borrow someone's good 35mm on occasion.I do have 5 pics of wood stacks,1 of shed & 1 of me at parents acreage next to it all just after my 18th birthday.wow that seems so long ago now lol You always wonder about the 'missed opportunities' of things you didnt snap a photo of.Now my camera is in the truck whenever I leave the house.Always seem to be taking pics of old houses,certain architecture,various trees & animals when I see them even when out running errands or going to work.
