When I worked at the blueberry farm, Lookingglass OR, there were turkeys all over the place.  You can chase them with the ATV and they will run in front of you for quite a ways but they start flying at about 18 mph.

That's not all they do at 18 mpg. :o

They will also just about scare you out of the seat of a tractor when mowing hay and they explode out of the grass right in front of the mower!!

Actually the next time that I get my sawmill close to my welder I am planning to weld some 9/16" nuts or something on the loader arm tips.  Of course I have planned on doing that before but forgot.   ::)

Lynn, I did that several years ago, it really helps, but sometimes we still have issues!

I'm now thinking of heating them up to get rid of the bark and pitch in the threads, then taking bolts and screw them in, then cut them off with about 1/2 inch sticking outside of the nut!

Yup probably needs more than I said.  My arms have also lost some of the curve that they originally had.  Lifting too heavy logs has taken itís toll.

As it dries, does it stay that high yellow? None in my neck of the woods. :(

No sir, it fades after a little while in the sunshine.  :)

My roadtrip job is still progressing very well, well actually better than that because PatD came with me this week.   ;D
 

 
I am dealing with some cull logs such as this one with ring shake.
 

 
Split down the middle.
 

 
And this one with a deer hunter's screw in and grown in climbing steps.   :-\

I am seeing probably two more day's sawing.

I have logs that good.

Just another few hundred miles and you could be at my place and help me learn how to saw up logs like that and come out with a silk purse. ;D

Wish our weather guesser would quit.  Snowed Sat night and again last night.  About 6 inches between the two nights. Went out to plow after it stopped late this morning.  Came in when I was through and told my wife I had done a first.  I had plowed snow in all kinds of weather and conditions, but today was the first time I had ever plowed snow in the rain.
