Yes we stopped at loggah's place for a nice visit and tour of his "relics" as he calls them. 
 

 
Here is a peek at his incredible gun vault.
 

  
And in his collection is a Lombard and other logging equipment.  I could have stayed for a week.   :o
 

 
And then Don's Wife Cheryl gave us a tour of her Art Studio.  Another eye popper.
 

 
Next on the tour was Don's Sugar House.
 

 
Where he explained the "Sugaring" operation.
 

 
And that the year is not over until next year's wood is cut, split, and stacked.
 

 
From the Sugar House we moved on to the Saw House, where Don explained that operation.
 

 
We left Don and Cheryl's place filled with the Friendship that they had shared with us.  Our Thanks to you both for your kind and generous Hospitality. 

The above pictured Timber Board Game will eventually make it's way to Jeff and the Forestry Forum.  The Maple Syrup will not.   ;D

Our last visit (too short) in N.H. was with Bruno of NH.
 

 
Jim has a very promising startup sawmilling and lumber business and I predict that he will do well.  Pat and I both enjoyed visiting with him and leaving was difficult.  This guy has a true heart and I wish that we could have stayed longer.

Those of you that are following this Topic and usually do not read the Timber and Logging Board will be interested in this sad news:  LINK.   

Also refer back to Replies #131 & 135 on page 7 in this Topic.  I was not planning to stay a Woodhauler's (Ronald Carter) place but he reached out to me through a PM and cellphone text.  I will forever remember and cherish meeting Ron, his Wife, Son, one of his two Daughters and three Granddaughters.

Rest in Peace my Friend.

I encountered something today that I have not seen in many years.
 

 
A gasoline pump without any option to select different grades and no option to "pay at the pump".
 

 
We drove through the "Land Between the Lakes" in Kentucky this morning.  The Buffalo were there but in the shade.
 

 
This thermometer changed from 44 to 45 in Maine before I could get a picture.
 

 
And this one changed from 101 to 100 in Mississippi before Pat could get a picture.  It is HOT down here, still 98 as I write this.

I had to put a Flannel shirt over my t-shirt late afternoon because the cool breeze was whipping.
Only 68 degrees in the cabin. ;)

70, a breeze, and the humidity is finally backing off a bit. I'll take it, but its a bit on the warm side for me.
