Howdy everyone!

I am a country boy by birth, owned my own firewood business at age 16, and was a faller at 18.  I went on to a career in aviation.  However, I am back to cutting firewood for home use, and now own a Stihl 310 MS.  I have owned a Stihl 031, 045, 056 Super (my fav) and a an 041 Farm Boss (hated it).  I suppose I am here mostly to read about how things are done nowadays in the industry and pick up a few hints.  My family and I recently brought home a few pickup loads of 8-10" diameter poles.

Welcome 3584ELK.

You can certainly pick up good info here and possibly learn something too.  It's not all work here though.  Sit back and peruse  5 years of posts.  It's relaxing and fun.  :)

Answer me this.

How come so many folks are putting all of thosenumbers on their userID's now.   I've seen some that are nothing but a long string of numbers.    I figure that might be a birth date or something else you feel worth noting but never did figure out  the need to use so many numbers.  It would confuse me.  :D

Perhaps they don't want to be known to be associating with the likes of us?  ::)

Welcome!

So, how did I end up here anyway?

Welcome!  You've landed on a fun place.  Here's a warning though:  if you want to get any work done ever again, then RUN FOR THE HILLS!   :D  This place tends to become a little addictive.   8)

Welcome 3584ELK
That 041 Farm Boss has been my most favorite saw. Bought in '75 and just keeps on runnin and runnin. I have a new MS361 and use it only because I feel I should use it with the anti-vibe and the safety brake. But for a running saw, and restarting it on idle when its already warm, it doesn't compare at all to the 041.  Never been a problem.  Guess they are not all the same.

I would say so.   Brings to mind 35 to about 49.  :D  You might stretch it into the 50's a little but you'll have to smile when you say it.  :D

Welcome Elk! That's a mighty big herd....over 3,000. Wow!  I suggest the best way to get started is to start reading the thread called "Funny Stories". It will give you a flavor of the Forum. We love to learn and have fun too.  I hope you like grits! 8)

Elk, you've come to a great place,  as a new member myself, I haven't posted a new topic yet that other members haven't responded to.  The guys (and ladies) here are great for sharing what they know.  Don't be afraid to add your 2 cents either looks like everyone here enjoys helping fellow members just as much as they like recieving advice and information.

The member ID has to do with hunting and shooting.  It is my favorite caliber for elk hunting, thus:  .358 4 (for) elk.  Yeah, I agree, it has to be something special to the user.  Additionally, I am signed up on all my other forums under this name and it is easier to remember one user id as opposed to several.

Well that's a good reason.  I didn't associate the number with a caliber.  :)

Welcome to the forum.

What type of rifle is that 358 in.

Tom maybe it's  not old age but one to many "refreshment" breaks under that shade tree this summer. :)

Well, so much for you all trusting me - I know three languages. English, Spanish and I am fluent in Sign Language.

We won't talk about how many computer languages I know.

So, how did I end up here anyway?
