That kind of blower system is the way Barnie does it, the member I'm getting sawdust from.

Driving the speed limit, and stopping once at a rest area for a bathroom break, it takes 3 hours give or take a few minutes to get there.

Dave, I sell two species of sawdust to a niche market. I capture it the same way. My tip is to play around with the vent size you allow in the top of the bag. If you seal it off completely it may sound like you would capture more, but my experience is, that although the venthole allows sawdust to shoot out, it builds up considerably faster in the bag than if you seal it off.

There's too much back pressure with no vent. When I have it just right, you can see the sawdust pile grow inside the bag (I use those huge ziploc bags) with amazing speed.

Okay, I have to ask. Why is that chair up in that gable? There has to be a reason peculiar to sugar shacks?

The chair is not peculiar to sugar shacks, is is peculiar to sugar shacks that over look a cedar swamp with a deer run on the edge. :)

I'll post some more photos of Lou's Dad's old cabin. Like Corley said, its like a time capsule. Everything in it the way it was left.  From the Schlitz Beer can on the table to the 1977 game laws laying on the shelf.

After being discovered a dozen years ago, something will be following me home next week.  I'll salvage what I can of this magnificent tree. The top was broke out of it when another tree crashed into it a couple years after finding it.  A couple years after that the tree died. Lou could not make up his mind what he wanted to do with it, and it was left and forgotten by everyone but me. I finally caught up with it laying along the woodline on his cousin Gary's place next to my property, where Lou had drug it out with the tractor shortly before he sold his place.

I wish I could have got it when it was in its prime. I dont know what I'll do with it, but it will tell me. :)

Probably full of water for extra weight from laying around. I know I had to move a pasture spruce log one time that was close to 30" and 10' long. The roll was down hill. That thing was several pounds heavier from taking on more water laying in the grass. And was a wet summer. I had one of Logrite's peaveys with lots of leverage on it. I don't want to move many of those. :D
Move'n on.
