   How are things with you.... crop in....lots of wood on the landing ?

Yup, crops are in and up. Some guys with black muck had some frost damage in the corn, but now we finally got some much needed rain, that will help to recover. About the wood, I am a little behind with processing ( long story ) and it probably will keep me busy for another while. :)  But things will be just fine.
Make sure you know how to fall properly when you fall and as to not hurt anyone around you.
Also remember, it's not the fall what hurts, its the sudden stop. !!

Nice Pic's Stephen, gotta love those cab tractors and clutch jobs. People around these parts are getting fuel wood any way they can. Here's a customer who I fill a forty yard roll off with 12 ft round wood with the grapple trailer. Seven cords and this load has some weight due to being Red Oak. Git 'er done baby!!!, I stand back when he's pulling that box on. Stay safe and I'm ready for the tailgate food shots any time.



 
In two days from now, tomorrow will be yesterday.

   Many times over the years someone has posted about some experience and as a result I have checked out same and it has saved me a great deal of grief. Hoping to return the favor and remind you good folks to keep checking your  "lugnuts" .    ;D


 

   The bugs are back and by bugs I mean "blackflies"  One of you lads last year mentioned putting chain oil on the helmet.  Changed that up a tad and smeared baby oil on the helmet,  shroud and a rub on the inside. That along with a bit of verbena/lavander mix seems to help alot.  Don't know which I like more , the carnage on the helmet or the screams as the careen over the edge of the helmet when they can't get the landing gear down...   :D

 

   This is one of my favorite homes. Great family.  I really like the multiple chimneys, but there is just something about it that puts a smile on my face.   :)

Yup, once the wheel is starting to wobble not only the studs are wrecked most of the times the rim also.

Good idea on your bug defense, but I am trying to stay out of the woods when they're nasty. ;D

wheel studs can be a problem. that truck looks old enought that it would not have hub piloted wheels. there is only 8 studs that maybe should have been bigger and the load on board maybe a little to big at times. my f550 has broke a couple it has 8 studs the next year they went to 10. seems like the tq spec is 165ftlb.

   You lads are on the mark, rims had to be replaced. It has a 10 bolt hub,but is probably not original. Which by the way is no longer available as of January. At issue is a 7month winter, ie got slack on maintenance, lots of wheel chain use, and hauling 16' in a 12 ' box.  Snowstorm you are also probably right about a bit to much "what what"  some trips.  Downsizing is not as simple as it would appear.  Thing about "ol Petie" was if I could get it on she would haul her.   :D
 

 

This is my favorite forest cover type..."old dairy cow hangout"

 

Here is one last thing of beauty....... ok ..... almost maybe last..... :D

Always like mature sugar maple forest, pretty much keeps everything else from coming up under except shrubs and herbs that don't get too tall. Start working in there and making holes in the canopy and then it's a whole other ball of wax. :D
Move'n on.
