A few days ago, Grandpa declared that he was going to put in a new, short side trail to some jack pines that had been killed by a porcupine.
Yesterday he finished the trail and cut up some smaller deadwood that he deemed suitable for firewood. As such, today I took the ATV and trailer up his new trail and loaded up.
On the way back, I took a corner too sharply on a slope, and dumped the trailer :(. But it wasn’t a big deal to set it right and reload it.
I got the wood back to the shed without incident, and Grandpa began splitting it.
|Grandpa gets right to it!|
I had a number of other miscellaneous logs in the area that I had skidded last week, so I took advantage of the nice weather to cut them up into stove length and create another pile of wood “to be split”.
|Note the safety chaps!|
|Putting my best face forward.|
|Longer ones I’d buck up well off the ground, as long as I could still lift them.|
At lunch, Grandpa ended his workday here, and I went inside to start writing some blog posts, as well as check up on Kenny’s self-directed studies. You can find his blog here:
Hopefully he’ll find something worth posting again soon. He’s been so busy!
At least the woodshed is even more full than before! Capacity – here we come!
|The outer pile grows nicely!|
|Halfway up the door frame!|
