    Hey all, Haven't been on in a while....not much to say...just watching the wood I cut last summer dry. I think I have 2 years c/s/s ('13 and '14). So I will likely wait until the spring to pursue wood for '15...maybe this fall if something easy comes along. In the mean time I've been taking care of other projects, and actually took vacation, just got back from 10 days of hiking on Yellowstone and Grand Teton!

    Anyway, I just thought I would share of pic of some new equipment I procured is the spring to help with everything that needs to be done! I have about 30 hours on it now, and have loved every minute!

    Diesel, 22.5 HP @2600 rpm, FEL lift capacity is close to 700lbs to full height...depending on where you measure of course! Very similar to John Deere 1xxx, Kubota BX, etc. Right about $15K including loader, 60" MMM, tooth bar, delivery, etc.
