    WOOO WEEEE!!!!

    I didn't know you had a fireplace that big Steve. Or a wood stove for that matter.

    Those should get you through one winter each without reloading.

    Hi Steve,
    That looks like a "good fellowship" project. Maybe time to talk to the lathe guys and see how you can turn that BIG BOY into a HUGH MING VASE! Step up Stu, Vaughn, IT'S SHOW TIME!

    I hate to see anything that big, with that grain going to the "glue factory".

    Where I am from we typically haul our wood sideways that way the tourists don't feel quite so scraed when you are coming at them with a load of logs.

    Just kidding of course. Hope you put that big log to good use. Just for my curiosity, what kind o sawmill are you going to throw that bad boy on? A bandsaw, circular mill or one of those rare wills with an over and under circular sawblade?
    I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"

    Sounds like it's already hollowed out for us. The hard part's already been done.

    I do think the 65 ton truck was a bit of overkill. Tha wood can't weigh more than a couple or three tons.

    Anyone have an old desiel engine along with some scrap steel sitting around? I'm sure Stu and his trusty welder can fabricate up a monster lathe for you !

    You sure that isn't a 6.5 ton truck? Not sure a blue whale will fit on that one.
    Or am I missing an inside joke... regardless, nice haul.

    This old truck has some springs on it.

    yup......some of those newer model trucks could work .....i guess things went south when they stopped making body panels that wouldn`t dent if you kicked `em....mid to late 60`s.....does your tractor have live hydraulics? that`s the ticket for a good splitter.
