Thanks for sharing.  I enjoyed watching that.  Its been within the last twenty years that "shortwood" pulpwood is no longer bought by the local mills.  It was a good honest way to make a living for many hardworking men in this area.

One thing that really stood out to me was the odd absence of fireant mounds.  Not in the fields, roadsides or woods.  When the older boy put his sandwich on the ground, the fireant absence occured to me.  Lil before my time but I read fireants were just starting to spread around the 50's.

I have to tell you, I didn't actually share the video, I just stumbled over it on Youtube.

Now, talking Youtube, have you guys been messing with one of my videos?
Last year I put up a robotic lawnmower in my garden, and used an old chainsaw to saw the slit in the lawn for the wire. Just for the heck of it I videoed a minute of the mayhem, and put it on youtube - it had had about 800 views a fortnight ago, has over 16.000 today!
16.000 hits on a video of an old guy sawing the dirt!!

Yes!   :D

But that many views of an old guy cutting up his lawn, doesn't seem sane!!

I want to see the robotic lawnmower. Sounds like a winner.

I will upload a video of the lawnmower later today. It is too early for it to run  around now - the lawn is all frozen.

You need education on rocks.  :D  How can you do that?  ;D  I can't really put a shovel in the ground here without hitting a rock.

I don't know much about sawing rocks, true, it is mostly sand and gravel here.

The saw in the video is a Kut-Kwick. They were made in Brunswick, GA. Yes, that's a Wisconsin motor.
