   I sawed on a city street 80 miles from home one time. Was a short paved street in a subdivision. Super easy to set up on level paved ground. Hard place to find a bathroom. I'd have to stop sawing and drive to a gas station instead of finding a nearby bush like most sites. I threw a couple of cheap tarps down to catch the sawdust. The mayor stopped by about noon to show his authority and make sure we had the landowners permission to stage the logs where they were (We did) and be sure we were going to clean up the mess. He was not wearing a bikini either - thank goodness!

Tom,

   Remember the FF motto - if there are no pictures, it didn't happen. We're waiting with bated breath for the proof here. :D :D

    Here is the scene from last weeks job 110 miles away. No mermaids were harmed in the making of this memory. ;D

Too wet and had to park the sawmill with a tractor again today.

Not necessarily unusual, but my very first location/set up.


 
It's at my property where I first set up and sawed.  That picture was taken over 20 years and over 2MMbf ago.  It is also the picture that is on my business card.

MM: that's pretty neat - 20 years ago. Good for you.
Is it the same LT40?

Oh yes, same sawmill, but not quite as "orange".  It was 3 years old when I bought it and I have always updated it as manufacturer improvements/options were offered ie; Lubemizer, autoclutch, FAO's, engines, plus some of my custom options.

Yup, that would qualify as a "custom option".  It was also pre-Auto Board Return Arm & Table removal.  (Board drag back)

I was so fortunate to find that sawmill when I had no idea what it was nor even what I was looking for.

   I just remembered a job for a local building contractor I did last year. Was his home and it was right on the banks of the Greenbrier River (Actually I think that was the 3rd time I have sawed along it). I had to ford about 6" deep stream getting to it, drive under his raised house, sawed the logs and before I could get out the water was up over a foot deep and lapping at the lumber stacks and up to the concrete foundation under his house.

Since I mostly saw in my own yard, I don't have many unusual sawing setups, I did do some sawmilling at the local native American village here in British Columbia. The WRC logs were so large, they needed to be quartered with a chainsaw 1st.
