Fall logging

(1/2) > >>

Quebecnewf:
Well once again we have started our fall logging . 

Best time of year here . Sunny days and most days not to hot . 

We saw at a leisurely pace really . We get up at 6 or 6:30 . At least an hour for breakfast 
 

 
This is the hotel we are staying at during our days of cutting . 

Just a short zodiac ride to the cutting site ( 1/8 of a mile ) 

We land ashore moor the zodiac and then start cutting . Usually cut until 11:30 . Then we have a two options do a cook up in the woods or zip back to the boat for lunch . Depends on the day .
 

 
Lunch is usually an hour or more . We then return to the woods and pile the logs we cut in the morning . By 3 or 3:30 we’re back aboard . Relax with drink . Then a good supper . We turn in early . Usually read for a 1/2 hour or so and then a good nights sleep . There’s no noise most nights so it’s easy to sleep . No traffic ever .



 
One of the piles we have cut so far . These will be covered and moved to the shoreline by snowmobile later this coming winter . They are then rafted home to the mill next ( spring/summer).

Fall logging is much easier than winter logging .

Magicman:
Thank You for again sharing your most unique (for us anyway) method of harvesting and transporting your logs.  8)

cutterboy:
Quebecnewf, the land you are logging... is it public (govt) land? Do you need a permit or is it available to everyone?

Bruno of NH:
I like following your progress. 
Fall is a wonderful time to work.
It was in the 70's the last 10 days.
But winter is on its way.
