The gods were obviously conspiring against us as we "tried" to prepare for our first woodcutting mission of the season. Normally we have the whole firewood project rapped up by the end of May, we are a little behind this year... too many projects going at once. I was going to go into a whole spiel about all the issues I had with my chainsaws, truck, and other things but will spare you the dreadful details and show some pictures of todays trip instead.
This dead tree will keep us warm for over a month, providing us with almost a cord of wood.
We rolled the rounds of wood over 200' down hill to our truck waiting below.
My wife readies the wood for splitting.
Only a few more rounds to go!
The truck is fully loaded with about 1 1/4 cords of wood. Now where will I put my equipment?
We even had time to hunt for a few stakes and poles for the garden. :)
Cut, split, and stacked all before noon. Only three more trips to go... but not today, we still have some projects to finish in the gardens. I am most fortunate to have such a great helpmate.
