    Here's the pic of the big saw. No Smart car around, so I put myself in the picture to reference the saw to something little.....:p

    Hang this on the woodstack, and tell that sumbich if he comes back and tries to take more wood, he's leaving without his legs.......

    WHen the local stop n go is selling a few wimpy splits for 4-5$ each you bet your wood is valuable. When the economy tanks altogether you will have to keep your
    wood in the living room for it to be safe.

    What is better? Having your wood right on the road, where a lot of people drive by and someone will see somebody loading it up, or having it WAYYYY off the road 800' up the driveway, but right off the driveway? We have the 2nd one. Fortunately, our neighbors keep odd hours, so they might still see something.

    I vote for way off the road and out of sight . . . out of sight, out of mind . . . plus it makes it more of a challenge for the lazy thief.

    "lazy thief"
    Seems to me the definition of thief is lazy. Or, should be.;)

    Registration #'s?? What are those? Its a ATV. There is no identifiable things on a 4wheeler around here other than the serial # or some special mod which could make it a one of a kind.

    There is no ATV registration in SC? In NH, you better not get caught off your property W/O a reg. Nice big juicy fine. If you did get the reg #, the fish and Game Dept. will be on them like a tiger on a raw steak.

    Want to hear one better? If you have an ATV you use with wheels during the summer, and you put tracks on it to use during the winter, you have to register it TWICE, as an ATV AND a snowmobile. New law for '12 in NH. I call Bullshit.

    Yeah. Gotta have it registered if you wanna ride on any State land (Forestry, State Park, Etc).

    The Serial # is all its based on. Just like the VIN # on your car. There are 1,000,000 Silver Focus' on the road. But I still have to register mine.

    Also, not only does it have to be registered to ride on State land, certain places require you to purchase "Cert's" to ride on there property (Wayne National Forest in Ohio is one place). Hatfield/McCoy's may do this also (they may not, but with all that property, it only seems as if they would).

    I doubt anybody who took the time and paid the dues to register their ATV is out stealing off your woodpiles anyways.

    Same law here in Maine . . . heck . . . probably NH caught wind of our law and figured they could do the same thing and get more registration money.

    As pointed out though . . . if someone is stealing they're probably not the type to register their ATV either . . . even if it was required.

    That saw is enormous. You aren't a shrimp and that thing is as big as you. Are you taking down Sequoias with that thing?
