    Not sure about your previous life, but for sure you need to hang onto that woman in this present life.

    What a title! Nice haul. My wife was informed of the wood (like my latest pick) and she help load the trailer. We even used her truck to tow this haul. Yes, the wife is every part of the equation!

    I was gifted the Husky by her 3 x-mas ago. She knows My addiction!

    She is a very special woman. She would love more than anything to help load but in May of this year she had her voice box removed because of cancer and is still a little weak. But she tries once in awhile. The cancer was so bad that her body made new main blood vessels to go around the cancer. She is still learning how to talk with the new talking devise. But she is still as pertty as heck and I tell her that every day.

    No I am not, at 58 you learn how to pick things up , but not pick up if you know what I mean. About all logs on this load was small but a couple and I would put them at about 150-175 pounds average for me to pick up. More than that stand them up on end and let fall in trailer.

    Very nice load of wood. One question though what is weight capacity of your trailer ? The leafs look like they are pointing to heaven ! Might leave you without a trailer axle on a good bump.

    Thanks Zap and Pete
    Pete, don't know the weight capacity . It was give to me and I rewired and put in new floor. I don't go over 1/2 mile round trip to get my wood. I load it to the top and come home. I have had bigger loads than that on it.

    Thanks Osage. the credit is mostly down to Jan . She's a great lady with an obvious great amount of patience ! I pretty much owe everything good in my life to her ,and don't mind saying so ! I'm sure that there are more than a few reading this that share the same feelings towards their better halves.

    Welcome to the forum rugerman1.

    For one of your first posts, this one is a winner! Just don't forget it and don't forget to tell your lovely wife how you feel. They really do like hearing it.
