    Christmas Tree Hunt 2007

    Going out into your woodlot and cutting down your own Christmas tree and dragging it out with your sled....


    Here is a webpage I did on my annual Christmas Tree Hunt for 2007. Luckily this year I could use my snowmobile to help drag the tree out of the woods. With 2 feet on the ground, and more coming down as I type this (another 12-15 predicted), I think its going to be a white Christmas afterall.
    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!"

    Cool pictorial, Travis. You are fortunate indeed to have that kind of space and land. Your tree beats the tree lot version any day of the week.

    Love it Travis, reminds me of when we used to go up to my Uncle Mel's place and get our trees each year, and we used the snow machines too!
