Welcome, lawyer_sawyer.  Many of us on this site combine 40 hour/week drudgery with wood therapy to keep sane.  You are going to like it here  :)

A big old welcome from down under L_S you wont find a better site than this one. (regardless of if your q's are answered or not :D) It is the best place to be, after running the mill of course!!

Also looks like you better let folkes know what you are specialising in, otherwise you'll have more personal messages than Da Boss ;D :D ;)

By the way. Once you get your practice and sawmill running you're going to need some real good investment advice on what to do with all yer money. :)

I'm just the man you're gonna want to talk too! ;D

man it has been great seeing the response.  sorry I haven't been exactly active lately but it has been a little hectic getting exams out of the way and I just found some room to breathe.

MSU_Keith
I am not planning on staying in the Ann Arbor area.  I am attempting to get a job this summer in the GR area and hopefully that would lead to something full time after I graduate next May.  Most of my family is up in the Newaygo County area and points north.

Paschale:
thank you very much for the offer I am going to be trying to get to some mills when they are running ot see what it is like.  I have been around stationery mills and would like to see how portable mills even if stationery work.

thanks for the welcome
it is nice when dealing with an industry that often sees the ends justifying the means that there are still a ton of great people out there.  and a lot of them here
Love the outdoors, chainsaws, my 300 win mag, my wife and my son but not exactly in that order.

Also:
Thanks Keith for the offer, When I know what my summer is like I will definitely try to get ahold of you to come see your operation.  I know I have a lot to learn.

Dewwood
If I am down that way I would love to stop by and learn what I could from you.  thank you for the offer.

everybody have a great morning

The party of the first, herein known as Brad S., extends greetings and salutations to the party of the second, herein known as Lawyer-Sawyer, and wishes or otherwise hopes for success and prosperity vis a vie good luck with your chosen career and/or profession. The party of the fist shall not be held liable should the party of the second suffer financial disparity should the party of the second pursue expressed saw milling desires. smiley_contract

One of my more consistent log suppliers is taking the route opposite of yours. He logged for 20 years and now is studying law. There will be times when my calls won't be returned and I find out later that he was studying for his Barr exam. He's missed twice by a hair, hoping 3rd times a charm.
He claims if he knew then what he knows now about liability issues, he would have never touched a chainsaw or cut down a single tree! :D
