Nice ground you have there. If I did that here the piles of rocks would make that pile of logs look small.

It's been awhile since the last update.  I've been busy over here. The mill and log deck are set up and running. Haven't spent a whole lot of time on it yet, been busy getting everything situated and working on our material handling plan. Decided to build a couple solar kilns so I've been working on that the last couple days. It's taking longer than I anticipated but should have both done in 4 days working on then by myself. Also finally got the flex hose delivered and hooked up to a wood master 5 horse blower. Works like a dream.
