Thank you. I took over the logging end of things about 10yrs ago and it's been a slow struggle. Wood makes up a small % of what we do so sometimes my pictures aren't quite logging related.

Its a 40x96 convience store. My father and i had kicked the idea around for a few yrs and it's taken me 2yrs and 4 months to get to this point. I hope to have it open by June 15th with gas /diesel. Being in the NYC watershed sometimes it takes a while to get anything done. I've got almost 40,000 gal of above ground triple wall tanks being built at Highland tank shortly and we will literally be our own fuel supplier shortly buying direct from the port of Albany. It's 16 miles either direction for a gallon of milk down here, I think come summer you won't be able to get near the place it will be so packed. I bought out 2 complete other business so basically it's down to the cooler and freezer box, we are doing this once and right the first time.

I just found a place to buy "onion bags" for selling the scraps off the survey stakes we manufacture, I'm looking around for a bundler but not in a hurry.

My step mother told me I was going to get stabbed in my sleep one of these days. 😂 I send out 4 "goodmorning" texts each a little unique every morning, the problem is not mixing them up. I called one the other ones name about 6wks ago, then the other one was here and one called at 1am to talk as she was getting out of work. I've got dinner with something that's unbelievable gorgeous Monday night, 5-10 and is a worker, I think I'm out of my league on this one but I'm throwing down. 😂

 
 They are everywhere. The nurse that went with me to snowstorms to pick that head up was a nice girl but it wasn't going to work, nice girl but she still won't take no for an answer. This one I'm taking out monday is going back to school for her masters degree, does gymnastics as a hobby and loves rough country guy types, if you read my obituary and see that I died of a heart attack next wk don't feel bad for me. 😂

Remember what I said a long time ago. The key to a successful convenience store is selling a good hotdog. LOL

Anyway this was my day. Started off great and ended miserably. 

  

 
 Too big and too nice for the timbco. I think I put 38 of those down today, only had 1-2

  

   that had alot of mineral and some rot.
 I cut a spot out with the timbco and work around my good wood, handcut that and I try to keep my brush in piles. This was a 20acre lot that gets hunted pretty hard, I kept the nice small younger oak and left a few of the larger acorn producing lower grade oaks and it looks good. So many of these woodlots get high graded and they cut just the best and you never grow any good wood. I average maybe 5%-10% good logs on most of these lots I cut, 1ld a wk is doing good sometimes but I won't butcher the small stuff coming in and cut bolt wood. 

  

  

 
 That parker hydraulic hose machine is paying off. Problem is keeping every odd fitting on hand. Popped a short hose about 2pm and that killed the day.

Clear to 9ft, 38in at base hoping for 32in at 9ft.  I don't cut but a couple of these a year. Lots of bdft on limbs etc. But a big gamble when u buy trees standing. They maybe hollow or get tore up on the way down. But sometimes I get lucky.

Bargemonkey. You sound like me way back when. Dating one and another came along. Had her out 100 miles away from home. Thought I would be safe. First thing I did was run into a friend of the first one. Those were the days. Never take an extra to a popular tourist destination no matter how far away from home.

As much as I hate to admit it, the juggling thing isn't as fun as it sounds, kind of like playing with fire.  :D  can't quite figure out the girl I've been chasing for almost 1yr now, an amazing girl that has everything I've been looking for but I can't gain headway so I don't know what to do. 😂😂

Anyway here's some wood pictures from Sunday. I saved the best logs on this job till last and it's kind of nice to cut some good wood for a change. I've probably got 100+ hitches of firewood on the ground, kill cable on my delimber is frozen and I don't feel like messing with it and I don't want to handle the firewood 2x so waiting till I get home. 😂😂

  

 
A few friends of mine bust on me about being "part time" and owning a Timbco and that I can't hand cut, so I have to provide proof sometimes. I've cut 100+ trees like that in the last couple days. 

  

  

 
That 460 is a tough machine. Grab 4-5 good ones and go. Sometimes cable is the way to go but dual arch grapple is FAST in certain circumstances. 

  

  

 
 I gave up tonight at 6 when I couldn't see anymore, need better lights on the loader. 😂 hopefully log prices don't take a dive while I'm gone.
I've made my mind up, 2 more hitches and I'm done, it's kind of weird because I've been on the boats for 15yrs, never been home longer than 7wks and I'm literally giving it up to cut wood and swing dirt, I went to work for these people 2yrs ago because I could work any schedule I wanted and I hope I'm making the right choice. 😂
