Starting to get scared of what Danny and the rest of you are talking me into.

Chain the tractor does not have filled tires or extra weights other than the box blade on the back and the belly pan. The trailer was originally a 10 ton trailer then when it was about 12 years old I had new 12 ton axles put under it. The trailer has hauled a lot more than was on there in those pics.
Two LT70s and to much other support equipment to mention.

Well, today was the day to harvest some metal saw the not-so-highly-valuable walnut log.  Three or four bullets and only five or six nails.  No insulators, tire irons, clothes line pulleys, or Kentucky Long Rifles. 

Here is the butt log being whittled down. 

 

 

There were some nice slabs from this log. From the second log, not so good.  This one was coyote ugly. 

 

 

Some good figure in the usable pieces that we were able to recover.

From left to right.  Bill Nomad, his friend John Dukes, B.L. Horne, Colin Horne, and Jake.

 

 

There were some boards that only a Mother and David Poston could love  :).

Actually, there was a good bit of highly figured pieces that are maybe 1 or 2 board feet that would make some very nice small projects.
