Mike,

I am almost dead center in Delaplane, VA.  Bout 20 mins east of Winchester.  I'll sneak some logs on your trailer if you come through.

BTW Mike, welcome to the Catskills. Hope you enjoyed your visit, driving it with a rig is not really very relaxing though. Truly nothing is flay here. WHen Eric says he is "working some steep ground" now you have a good idea what he means. The ponds and reservoirs look flat, but actually I think they are on a slant. ;D :D

I did a job in Tannersville a couple of years ago. Going out 23 through the gorge is something. Nothing flat when you get to the top.

Mike. I was in your neck of the woods last week. Spent 3 nights working in the Food City that is getting remodeled. 
Give me a new saw chain and I can find you a rock in a heartbeat.

Went fishing with the sennebogen.  Got a bite, reeled it in. 







Turned out to be an endangered squirt boom fish. I threw it in my bucket and dragged it home.

Not sure if I will be back anytime soon. Still more to do once the contractor gets more work done but I think another crew will be doing it.

 Good mobile mechanics are in short supply around here.  Not many will work on forestry equipment.
  I had a really bad experience with a local mobile mechanic who supposedly specializes in forestry equipment.  He came well recommended and had a good line of BS.  What should have been less than a couple hundred dollars worth of parts became a $20,000.00 repair bill.  Really.  Long story.  Too long to tell in it's entirety in writing.  The 2nd guy came highly recommended.  I hired him to put the thing back together and make it work again after telling the first to $%%$##%%.  He got it back together and then wouldn't come back to finish the job.  Wouldn't return messages etc.  One message was "if you don't want to finish the job let me know and I'll find someone else.  It's not a big deal"  He wouldn't even respond to that.  I got a hold of CrossTrac Equipment http://crosstrac.net/  They have a place in Gaylord.  Very professional, knowledgeable staff.  They finished it up and diagnosed and fixed the original problem after the thing still wouldn't work with all the new stuff.  Real nightmare.
  I don't know what Crosstrac charges an hour.  They do have a minimum charge of $175.00.
