    Got just over 1/2 a cord, mix of birch & spruce.
    Power line clearing left overs.
    May try to get one more load. All that's left is spruce.
    Note to self "Take camera" :)

    No, logs were pushed to the side of the ROW.
    Used the ATV to drag the logs to the truck & trailer.
    About 100 yards off the road.
    I never score the easy stuff :)
    If I go back, some pics ;)

    Nice winter time score BD.

    I read that the clearing requirements along major power lines have changed - more aggressive trimming is now needed. I have picked up several nice loads there recently.

    Dave - the wood is nice but that mountain view is spectacular! I'm really jealous of where you live! AND you actually get snow!

    Nice score Dave. Not sure what you are using to get logs out with the ATV but when I am working in tight situations I find this one log skidder works sweet to get them out with minimal dirt on the log. Tracks right behind the bike and follows out of any tight situation I can get the Griz into. I just knotch the log on one end and anything I can lift onto it the bike can tow. The Chain is added security but really is not necesary.

    I use a chain. Don't have a tow receiver, on the Kodiak, just a ball.
    Made a tow/trailer/log skidder attachment
