Happy Thanksgiving

Recommended Posts

To all my friends here I wish a happy thanksgiving. I will get to see about half my family this year at the house and will be thankful for this. So to all of you, enjoy your families and hold them close. I know I will. God bless you all.

No Thanksgiving here... We are going to enjoy our quiet 4 days to ourselves. I'll be working on the truck doing basic repairs. At least it 3 days without having to travel.

Nothing wrong with the peace and quite either or the 3 days with no travel. Enjoy. I need to spend some time on my ride also.

I do and I know how to use. I'll even wear my brand new safety vest so no one runs over me.

 

Not the way to spend Thanksgiving @015point9. Hope it is an easy fix.

Here is what I've been doing... Splitting firewood, burning off my garbage pile. Funny how soaking wet bark will burn just fine with nearly 5 gallons of oil poured on the pile. That also got rid of an oil change and half for me. Nice to have the wood splitter hooked to the ATV and I dont have to pack the firewood. Then the plow blade in front will be handy later on to push the trash pile back in the fire more.

Interesting.

Don't you usually get snow by now? I'm glad that can get out after some of the work around there anyway.

 

I don't have a log splitter but I find its good for me to do that work by hand. Helps keep me strong, but I also live on the wet side where it only takes about 2 cord a year to heat my house.

Heck, it started with a low of 49* and got to a high of 62*F here today.  Average wind speed of 6 MPH.  Really nice out. Off and on misty rain showers. Typically the ski resort in McCall is open for skiing by now typically.

Stacking on the trailer and the tarp it so it can dry out. I've got some dry wood in the shed but I don't want to bury my dry wood with the wet or damp stuff I just split.

Thank you. It's not an easy life. Do most of this work solo without help. After a while, you learn your own tricks of handling a big job like this one without getting hurt or worn out. My biggest factor is time. Being I'm still taking care of @MoparMom and getting her back and forth to dialysis treatments. Basically 13 hours every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday I'm on the road driving from New Meadows, ID to Ontario, OR (250 mile round trip).

I live like this too and once you do that you never want to go back living in town. The hard work part is very good for you and you get used to it, but the sense of satisfaction and freedom cannot be beat.
