    Sounds like a great time Jay! Get a plan together before you start cutting. So you can work safe and get in and out without blocking yourselves (been there done that). You will want to have your trials set up so if you have to come back in a week or two for more and it snows you don't hit a stump and hurt you vehicles. I knocked the oil filter off my uncles 255 massy loader tractor once on a stump and the other time pushing limbs into the woods. Its hard to push the clutch in when there's hot engine oil spraying on the clutch and your leg! Be safe I wish I could be out there with you!

    Except for the cold we've been lucky this winter with most of the storms staying south of us but we'll get ours sooner or later.

    In case it isn't loud enough I will bring a mccullough sp60 along. It's still fun though slow and heavy.

    You guys are making me jealous. This sounds like more of a party than work. And I like to party more than work.

    Not gonna happen Jay. I was so interested that I checked into it and it is a 300 mile 5 hr trip - one way. 300 miles pulling my trailer w/log splitter will drink enough dino wine that I could buy a half cord delivered. :lol:

    600 miles and 10 hours of drive ain't something I want to tack onto a busy day of making firewood. (and I HAVE to be back on Mon.)
