Got a cup o-tea this morning.
20f outside and 73f inside. No wind. Too cold, wayyyy below norm.
Last week I started cutting a path to the backside of my property to get to the blow-downs. One 100ft tall pine, and 9 Oak of similar age. Once I get them bucked up, they will go to my friends sawmill and they will become rafters for the lean-to on the backside of my shop. Kinda like Greg's project.
I had one mishap while felling a tree that had to move... I aerated my jeans a bit. Just finished up the felling cut. While walking backwards from falling tree, Chainsaw got pushed down by brush that was around me. Chain was still spinning a bit, and in less than a second from cutting wood, it was shredding a good pair of jeans.
Right across the kneecap. Skin was cut, but kneecap itself is ok. First mishap I have ever had in 40-something years of running chainsaws.
It took 2 days to pull all the bluejean threads out of my knee. But my skin heals quick. Always has. A little duct tape to hold it closed, and back to cutting.
