I missed the Saturday ride. Was it because I was afraid Steve and Jeff would throw me to the ground and give me a noogie? Ah, no. A neighbor had 19 acres of forest selectively logged and once the tree trunks were removed, gave me the opportunity to go in and cut as much as I wanted before the commercial guys come in and took the balance of the tree tops.
If you enjoy cutting, this was nirvana. There were huge oak, sycamore and maple trunks taken out. Probably 80% was red and white oak.
I cut Friday, Saturday and after riding out of Canal on Sunday morning, cut more Sunday afternoon. Cutting is the fun part, hauling and stacking not so much fun. A cord of wood is 128 cubic feet and by the end of Sunday, I had close to 4 cord cut and stacked.
