Title: Firewood up in the mountains.
Post by: 3000 FPS on August 09, 2018, 12:33:34 pm
Went to a new place in the Mountains for getting firewood.   The place I usually go to has been burned out this summer.   This place is a lot higher and is around 8600 ft.   Takes your breathe away right away.

The first tree was a spruce at least 70ft or more.   
Second pic the tree was dragged up to the trailer to be loaded.
Third pic was the second tree we felled.
Last pic loaded and ready for beer.   


The logs loaded on the trailer are 7ft wide.

I'll just put this here. 

Worked 2 54cc pretty good 335 3.3 16" 325 and 3450 20" 3/8 Thur clearing out a old logging road that got neglected since mid 90's. Lot of fallen ash and poplars across it. With poplar, sycamore etc having to be dropped where they have grown over the years.
Was cool as my 79 age dad took the 6x6 up the hill to the road so we could both run saws. Like a dang goat mountain, so saved me carry stuff up.
Neatest part was when done setting on top of a waist high fallen poplar just talking about stuff.
No pics on hill. Just wasnt stopping work to do such.

Oh I did start the saws to hand him one when he was cutting.  His shoulder is just shot.

Where I had to drag a deer out of last year. Couldnt get the 6x6 or atv back near it.
Wasnt making that mistake again.  My ole azz with bad lungs was hurting dragging it up and over the trees over and over.

During gun season I might try and take a pic of the upper logging road. 

Here is the main one we use on the hill across from that other hill logging road we just cleared.

Dads pic setting up there.

Had lost alot of big poplars to a blight years back. They are now fallen in storms. Plus the dead ash, ash borer getting those still. 
If you was here local Roger I would let you have those ash logs I rolled to the sides. Be some nice wood for ya to burn.

Never made it over to that hill Roger to snap a pic.  I stayed right there where dad had took that pic above.

Dad was over on top of the hill at my brothers land and missed Beamer at 75yds today.

Beamer looking at the smaller buck at one of the feeders we use for pics and feeding up in the hills.

Roger didnt make it over to that other logging road we cleared again. But did take pics of the one that runs on the other hill that runs parallel.

Pic showing to the top.

Pic with stand heading back down.

Dont know if you can see the fallen bigger poplar on the other hill and logging road. The one we stopped at.  Butt end barely shows through.

Then that deep gully between the two.  The one if deer die down there I either got to drag all the way out it or if dad is there he uses winch to pull us both back up.

I love cutting firewood especially in the fall time with a good running powerful saw that's working 100%
