What I did on spring break

The fact that I really do need to take some time off finally penetrated my thick skull a couple of weeks ago. So, I'm taking vacation this week. Of course, "taking vacation" in my family means "go somewhere else and do some other work". :-)

Saturday was spent rounding up logs with my deere friend John. These are remnants of the trees we had to have taken down after The Great October Storm. My plan is to sit on them for a while, let the glut of storm wood subside, and then try to sell them to a local sawmill.

NB: Large pieces of wood are amazingly heavy. The biggest log on the pile (roughly 30" in diameter and 9' long) was so heavy that I had to drag it out of the woods, and then roll it up onto the pile.
