I know the feeling Lyle, that was me yesterday. Cut, split, and stacked a lot of firewood and even fired up the mill made some boards. Got some cherry and elm sliced up, first time since last fall to run sawmill. I don't think my restless legs even twitched last night!

Can relate to that, spent the morning climbing around in the fruit trees giving them their annual hair cut, had the brush on the burn pile by noon and finished the day out digging a 4'x4'x4 hole the old fashioned way.  Oh the aches and pains of spring.

This ole man came in dragging his tail yesterday.  Carpentering and roofing is tough.

I gotta get back to the sawmill so I can rest up.   ;D

I was running boards through a planer yesterday and sat down for a while.  When I went to get up the back locked up again.  I made it to the house for an ice pack and pain pill.  Better today, but taking today off.  Hoping by Monday it will be healed up.  Like MagicMan, better to be milling.

I've been building my work platform for my mill using green rough cut red oak. I have to set my construction goals a little lower using that stuff. There wasn't enough advil in the house this morning.

Yeah...I saw that chair on your mill! You get to SIT DOWN when you saw! That ain't fair...you need to spread the wealth!
Speaking of worn out, you ought to try loading an 18' pine log on a manual mill with a cant hook and a manual winch. :)
It was actually harder to tote the 18' 2x10s off the mill to the stack than it was to load the log! It nearly killed me...I'm in the bed with my laptop trying to recover! :D

Planman, I'm trying to figure out how a laptop is going to help.  But, hey, if it eases aches and pains, I'm gonna have to get me one!  :D

Not only do I have a seat, I also have an umbrella.  I replaced the umbrella cover today.

I hate restless legs, they keep me up all the time. Worse when I've sat down driving or something all day.

Wow, other RLS sufferers.  Been struggling with it for years.  I think I'll start another post and see what others are doing about it ...

Wow! Other RlS sufferers. Glad to hear, but very sorry for all. Have taken about everything under the sun from home remedies to prescription drugs, still no relief. Have been to several doctors and ask everyone, but always get the  ??? Of all my problems that is the one I would really like to whip, instead of getting so pilled up and walking the house till 3 or 4 a.m. Get so tired all I want do is go to bed, but noooo, got to keep legs happy and keep moving. Sorry, just a little venting going on almost got carried away.

Mike, I've been there too and it's no fun!  I've started another thread out on General Board if you want to join in the discussion.  (I'd add one of those fancy links if I could figure out how to do it!)  Good luck on getting some sleep tonight!

Guys I'am really not qualified to give medical advice but, prehaps your getting older and should pull the throttle back a notch or two. Mayby a warm shower and a happy snap or two before bed. Frank C.

Post by: SawyerBrown on March 03, 2014, 08:01:07 AM
Frank, you're absolutely right about the getting older part (better than the alternative!), but slowing down is bad (the more I sit around, the worse the RLS is), and happy snaps don't do much good either.  Hot herbal tea seems to be about the best.  OK, I guess I am getting older.   :)

I do hope you guys realize I'am not making light of folks problems. Hopefully as we get older we realize we're not the bull moose we used to be. That's why I always champion hydraulics on a mill. I can do everything (almost) that I could do when young just can't do it as long or as hard. Work smarter not harder. Frank C.

So far the only thing I have found about the "Golden Years" is the color of my urine and of the door knobs of the doctors offices I see.
