so are you stocked up on wood for the snow season?

How about 12.5 cords of firewood... post-2-138698171875_thumb.jpg The splitting rig... post-2-138698171869_thumb.jpg Heating 2 buildings... post-2-138698171883_thumb.jpg There is no other form of heat in their building just wood heat...

The only part I don't understand is why you heat the guest house. Who is in there that needs heat?

Water lines... :rolleyes: Water pipe freeze nicely below 32*F... So since the water heater is in the shop and the rest of the plumbing is between the kitchen and bathroom... Well it just best to heat than trying to blow all the lines out fill with anti-freeze etc... So I burn 1 fire down in the guest house every 2-3 days heat it up to 75-80*F and then it takes 2-3 day to drop to 45-50*F.

Just blow them out, don't need antifreeze if there is no water to freeze.

Well I was up on the hill with the ATV and misc chainsaw tools working the trail behind the house... Man oh man the snow line is creeping down the mountain. From the house you can't tell looking up but up on the hill its pretty to look at all the white stuff... On my way down I flushed out 4 grouse and wish I brought a pistol or shotgun...

Come here if you want it to be cold then. This is what it says for right now. You can see it feels like 32 because of all the damn wind.

And from what I can tell, your not hitting under 36 all week, so don't give me any crap about "Idaho is hard living in the winter" :lmao:

Whiner... :tongue: I was out cutting trail all afternoon without a jacket on and sweating bullets... Still got lots to do as far as trail... It still really narrow and tipped outward over a cliff straight off... Now I got lots of shovel work. I guess since the weather is nice today I might be back up there again working the trail...

Well my expedition sucked. Was too warm out. Your like my dad, he sweats just getting out of bed. I only sweat if I am reallly working hard, which I didn't get close to that point cutting all the wood. Maybe I will try tomorrow when it's 31. The video of me cutting the wood is really boring so I'll just show the last part. Sister is having a bonfire tonight so thats all we need the wood for.

Yes I have never seen a work description of "doing trail". Do you just cut the weeds down? I would just hook a push mower in front of the 4 wheeler.

Where do I begin :rolleyes:

I think I will just list why it didn't beat me :lol:

[*]You brung a coat to a 40F outing

[*]You had a horse pushing you up the hill from what it sounds like

[*]Turning the camera on must have wore you out since you were already out of breath

[*]I didn't see anyone work

[*]It took 6 minutes to walk up and down a hill

[*]you were done at noon but I am pretty sure you didnt start til 11:00 which means you didn't get there till 11:30 and if you subtract everything else I think you did 10 min of work

[*]I think you just burned out with the 4 wheeler in those spots that "you" dug out

Since I said you didn't work I got my video uploading showing "work" :lmao: Taking forever, might be tomorrow before it's done. Tomorrow it will be 30 and I will show you how to get 100 year old fence posts out by hand :evilgrin:

When I left the house it look like it could rain. :smart:

[*]You had a horse pushing you up the hill from what it sounds like

Nope...:rolleyes:

[*]Turning the camera on must have wore you out since you were already out of breath

Air thinner than you flatlanders...

[*]I didn't see anyone work

I didn't in you move either... :rolleyes:

[*]It took 6 minutes to walk up and down a hill

So??? :shrug:

[*]you were done at noon but I am pretty sure you didnt start til 11:00 which means you didn't get there till 11:30 and if you subtract everything else I think you did 10 min of work

Ummm... I left by 12:30 so I could be down at the house to get the mail at 1pm... LarryB's package...

[*]I think you just burned out with the 4 wheeler in those spots that "you" dug out

Don't you wish... :lmao2::lmao:

What? I was being nice. I been laughing at it for an hour :lmao: Had to sift through everything to say only the good things lol.

What is this thinner air crap? You were at like what, 5000ft, and you were huffing when you were only 10ft from the 4 wheeler :lmao:

At least this thread will motivate you to work harder :tease: Like I will do tomorrow :cool: I have a ton of thorn trees I need to cut up too. I'm thinking the tree will have less cuts than me in the end.

--- Update to the previous post...

Finally! 200MB took 28 min to upload lol.

I tried to get rid of all the boring crap, but it is still boring. Chain saw wouldn't cut that cedar at all, so dull. I don't think it has been sharpened since we got it a couple years ago :stuned:

--- Update to the previous post...

I've done this with about 10 fence posts now. At that rate my back should be done for in 10 months :lmao: It was 32F this time.
