    You've had one chaotic summer.
    I understand it when you just want to get back in the woods. Cutting firewood is "Hard work" but fun & relaxing,
    No stress is one of the biggest benefits ;)

    ps: What will happen to the land?

    Totally amazing. The collection, the work it took to present it all for auction, and the frenzy bidders work themselves into in those situations. Sounds like you all came out OK with it. Now you just have, what...another farm and then all the land to sell? Still wish I could've beamed myself there for the auctions. ;lol Rick

    The land and buildings will all be sold too, by the end of this year, 575 acres. The contents of the auto parts store were sold last week and the building is close to being sold.

    Am taking this week off. Well, sort of, since I got summoned for jury duty! Then next week will finish cleaning the trash out of the auto parts building and after that we will begin working on the other farm to prepare it for auction. It's a much smaller farm, so won't take as long, but we only have a couple weeks to do it, the auction over there is August 17th: http://www.gavinbros.com/PageManager/Default.aspx/PageID=2185400&NF=1

    This is a monumental set of projects. I hope you are getting well compensated for all this work and are going to get a long vacation after this is all done.

    I'd rather be in the woods too! Thanks for the follow up and the pictures.

    The cars, machinery, and miscellaneous junk has been rapidly disappearing. Still a few things being hauled away, but almost all gone. As you can see, the salvage yards bought a lot of them, and paid way more than junk price. Must be they are going to sit on them until the price of iron comes back up.
