Hello All!
I am new to the Forum(s) and I've enjoyed reading/learning from several posts on here.  I look forward to being a part of this site.  My family and I will soon begin felling and chainsaw milling (Logosol M8 setup) spruce on our 40 acre wood (remote) for our first cabin up here in Southeast Alaska! For anyone interested, I threw a few pics in a folder that visually describe the lifestyle of my family and I. We all are truly blessed up here in "The Last Frontier". To all, a great day!

Welcome spoonswain!  Southeast AK? Which town are you nearest? Yakutat, Ketchikan, Juneau, Cordova, or somewheres else?  The Greatland is great!! I spent a lot of time in the interior and northwest coastal regions.

Welcome to the forum. A great place with a lot of terrific people. I have fond memories of fishing out of SE, Sitka, Port Alexander, Petersberg...  8) I look forward to lots of pictures of your adventures in that beautiful rainforest. Cheers  Rob
