    Next year I want to try some Red Oak, the Cedar is something we have talked about planting around the house in the woods.

    I changed all the plans for today (twice) hauled two loads of Cherry from the tree I cut yesterday then hauled down five loads from up top from the Cherry I cut a couple of weeks ago, I still have one or two more loads of Cherry up top.

    Made a little Cherry lane (smells great) but will move when something opens up or I make a new stacking area.

    Zap what a beautiful manicured forest. Must be great for XC skiing or snowshoeing. The wildlife must be abundant too.

    We were very lucky with both storms. Sandy missed us to the north and really spared us her worst. I really feel for those just a few dozen miles from us. What a disaster. I did see some big hickory and oaks down on a wood lot that I have the ok to go cut in. Maybe next month I'll go get some.

    Thanks scroungerjeff, we keep the trails clean but have areas that are just a mess. We're just hoping we get enough snow for XC this year, last year sucked.

    Thanks corey21. We always have Cherry in the stacks, my first hill I ever cut on (never been back since) had 13-14 Cherry down from a micro burst in 2008, that hill kick the chit out of me but we had some nice firewood.

    In the first pic 6355 if I turn the rhino around so it would be going in the direction the back of the wagon is facing I'll be heading toward that dreaded hill. :oops:

    Next time I go back on the hill it will be on the rhino from a new trail off of the main trail, I want a trail that leads on top of the hill. That is one of about three areas that never had a trail for a regular size truck on it, before next winter I'll have one for the rhino.

    The part of the hill I worked on was not that steep but it had so much dead stuff down it made working it that much harder.
