    The dog has nothing to fear from this cat; Sweet Pea never gives Toddy a hard time. Our other cat, her brother String Bean, is a whole different story! Beware of cat! Elsewhere in this thread there are photos of Bean, ruler of the house, asserting his dominance.

    Gotta love free firewood. Friend's selling their parents house and offered up the wood to take it away. And this is the second load, with enough left yet for another truck full.

    Your GS looks like my dog right now - sound asleep in front of the woodstove. After a long day in the snow there is no better place for a nap.

    Is the flintlock a family piece?

    It's actually a cap and ball with a set trigger. It is very old, although I can not date it. It has no marks or stamping in barrel. The stock is curly maple with brass inlays.

    It was my father in laws and he had a lot of old school gun collector friends. So I am not sure of its original origin.

    I believe it is fully functional but I am hesitant to shoot it since the stock was cracked and repaired right at the grip. image.jpg
    It still is a nice handmade piece of history!

    I burn about 6 cords a year, and split it all by hand.

    I try to turn in into a family affair.

    Who needs a wood splitter when you have these:

    I cant find a picture of my bike with firewood as I rarely use the XR to haul firewood....... but I do use a red Honda with a power loader::-)

    and for the winter travel pictures...... well again... the XR is not the right tool:

    any millennial parents on here are going to probably call DCF because my kids aren't wrapped in bubble wrap.

    How long have I heated with wood? : since the day I was born.
    Where do I get my wood? : I have enough acreage where I cut it myself.
    splitting and cutting tools? fiskars splitting axe, husky 10LB maul, husky 6lb maul, sledge... multiple wedges.. Echo CS590 for felling and big stuff. POS poulan with 14" bar for small stuff and for beating the crap out of.

    The storm shall provide.........

    Old red oak property marker is dying. :(

    5 or 6 years back, a "limb" of this beast came down and gave me 3.5 cord.

    It's a good problem...... but I'm sick of handling wood.

    This time of year it should be the once a week loading of the tractor and bring in the shop.
