I was walking Stella through the woods and noticed a lot of leaves have begun to fall. Soon, I won't be able to identify the dead ash trees from those still living. Since the temps were cool and I need to wear long pants for one of my favorite activities, I decided to skip a Tuesday ride and....
.....break out the chain saw and get after it. While I am not such a skilled cyclist, I have acquired the skill to bring down trees to avoid damage to live trees. Then the real fun begins, stacking the wood and....
...splitting it manually. I know, I should rent a log splitter but that would take the fun out of it. A little each day and it adds up. Probably have 3 cords split so far. Well, I will be at the Thursday New Albany ride to do my duty and some of us are planning a ride leader get together at the Rusty Bucket post ride either this Thursday or one of the remaining Thursdays. I'm even thinking of buying the first round.
